Mark down the reports that New England Patriots offensive coordinator Bill O'Brien was all set to become the next Penn State coach as false.
O'Brien's agent told the Boston Hearld yesterday
"Any imminent contract signing or agreement (with Penn State) is just off-base," Linta told me. "The most important thing for him is to win the Super Bowl. But if someone is going to be interested in him in the NFL, it's going to happen this week. He could be going somewhere else, he could be returning to the Patriots. But we'll wait and find out if someone is interested in him and seeks permission to talk with him." (via Boston Herald)
In addition, today CBS Sports' Charley Casserly tweeted that O'Brien is out of the running.
