Bill O'Brien staying at Penn State
By ESPN.com staff
Bill O'Brien will remain coach of Penn State next season, he said Thursday, turning away several NFL teams that were interested in talking to him for their head coaching vacancies.
Four NFL teams were interested in O'Brien, and he interviewed with the Cleveland Browns this week, sources confirmed to ESPN.
O'Brien had previously said he would stay at Penn State after revitalizing the program in one year, but sources had told ESPN that both the Browns and the Philadelphia Eagles had him on their short list of candidates.
"I'm not a one-and-done guy," O'Brien told pennlive.com on Thursday night. "I made a commitment to these players at Penn State and that's what I am going to do. I'm not gonna cut and run after one year, that's for sure."
