What precedent is there for coach/QB combinations moving from college to nfl?

Guess it's hard to quantify the effect really but on the flip side of any positives you are asking two key personnel to transfer their skill set to the pros at once and need them both to succeed.

I'm not an expert but I thought they would have waited untill after the playoffs in order to interview some coordinators or people that are currently working in other NFL teams.

Is there some upside to choosing the new HC this early?

If O'Brien was their top candidate & he's agreed in principal..... why wait?


The one guy we'll interview Monday will be Wade & it's going to go something like this, "Are you packed yet?"

Only that O'Brien has seen Bortles up close and personal and has watched Bortles beat his team in O'Brien's own backyard. O'Brien knows what Bortles can do.

Don't be surprised to see O'Brien target Ohio QB Tyler Tettleton late in the draft. He's seen him up close after Tettleton marched his team into Happy Valley and knocked off Penn State to start the 2012 season.

Also, don't be shocked if O'Brien targets Nebraska walk-on QB Ray Kellogg as an undrafted Free Agent after he led his Nebraska team to a win in Happy Valley in place of the injured Taylor Martinez late this year.

Ahh right don't get to see any college football over here so I'm not aware of who's where really!! Thanks for the info.

I guess if obrien comes in and likes Bortles that allows us the freedom to drop back in the draft and get a couple of years being stacked in the early rounds. That's going to be a big help in getting this team back to where it should be!!

So, basically, O'Brien is either lying to us about being sincerely interested in the position, or he is possibly lying to a high school kid?

That's just part of recruiting. Every coach does this.

Have actually heard it is part of their contract, that if they are leaving they cant do or say anything to jeopardize the recruits that have already committed. Not sure if that is accurate, but makes sense ... kind of like a non-compete type clause.

I'll be glad when they hire whomever as head coach. Then the process of filling his coaching staff can begin, which can be just as interesting as the HC himself.

Very true.

The HC should just be a manager for the ones calling the plays.

If we don't get the right OC, DC, and STC then its same ole same ole.

Unless he plans on calling his own plays, and that would scare me.

At the time Mack was going to still be the head coach. Saban did tell a 5 star that he wasn't going anywhere.

I'm not reaching for anything, just pointing out that O'Brien has seen Bortles up close and personal. That could work For or Against Bortles. Unlike WF I was not trying to be silly.

Until every single thing is finalized on a contract, O'Brien is still the head coach Penn State.
