They were talking on the radio that the Penn people were saying that O'Brien was always an outsider and now they need to bring in someone from the inside to preserve the tradition.

Screw that place. They should have burned the facilities to the ground, but instead those inbred morons circle the wagons and talk about pride and tradition.

I like that O'Brien never fit in and told the Paterno cult to go screw itself. He is his own man and is not kissing ass for a job. I respect those qualities.

Not sure why they think a school with two more years of greatly reduced scholarships, no bowl games and 3 years of probation is a better job than the Texans. They are lucky he didn't bail when he found out what the sanctions were.

I was excited about this hire when I heard about it; however, based on the amount of crying that those pedophiles are doing in Happy Valley, I think we struck gold. People only get upset when they lose something they want.

O'Brien literally will battle for his players. He almost came to blows with Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald on the field during a game in 2012 when they disagreed over an officiating decision. Both Irish Catholics - O'Brien from Boston, Fitzgerald from Chicago - neither would back down until separated.

Later that season, according to John Bacon's book "Fourth and Long," one of the Nittany Lions' leaders, an upperclassman who become an early O'Brien convert and chased rival recruiters off campus, suffered a severe knee injury. O'Brien visited him after the game, the coach shaking so badly he couldn't hold the player's hand. O'Brien left the room in tears.

McNair may or may not have hired a good head football coach. He hired a good man.

Fortunately, coaches salaries do not count against the Salary Cap.

Many of them have quick tempers and do not tolerate bull****.

After watching the Lombardi documentary on "A Football Life" the past couple of weeks, his son nailed it when he said Vince had a quick temper and perfectionist attitude. Two great things for a coach but lousy for a father.
If he's a Belichick or Sean Payton kid of A-hole, things look good. If he is a Schiano or Nick Saban kind of A-hole though...

Would rather have had Zimmer, but O'Brien seems like a safe hire.
