But I think he came across as pretty classless when interviewed on the field after the Ticket City Bowl in 2012.

His team was throttled by Keenum and UH, and he didn't mention them, let alone congratulate them. All he talked about was how his team fought through the Sandusky scandal to show up. And oh, by the way, UH lost its coach (Sumlin) just a couple of weeks earlier. So they didn't have it so easy, either.

But if O'Brien has the personality of Belichick, it won't matter as long as he can coach. And in fairness, he came across well in the HBO Real Sports feature this year on him, his wife and their severely disabled son:

Don't believe that was O'Brien they interviewed...he wasn't the coach until the next year...IIRC, he was still with New England...I believe that was was Paterno's son they interviewed.
