If it wasn't for Coach OB I probably wouldn't be playing football anymore, I wish him the best in the NFL.

I just can't wait to figure out who my head coach is going to be next year #WeAre #WeAreAndAlwaysWillBe

We all we got! No reason to panic or jump ship! Doesn't matter the system nor the coach...players win games period

Good luck to Coach O'Brien and his family. Made a tremendous impact on my life and many others during his time at Penn State.

Coach O'Brien was a great mentor, coach and father figure but every coach has the aspirations to coach in the NFL. glad coach can chase his.
