Another Honor for Bill O’Brien
Bill O’Brien on Thursday was named Bear Bryant Coach of the Year, his third such national honor recognizing the success he, his staff, and the Nittany Lion players achieved last season. The video below, shot Thursday night at the awards ceremony in Houston, features O’Brien and fellow award finalists Bill Snyder of Kansas State and Kevin Sumlin of Texas A&M talking about Penn State’s inspiring run through the 2012 season.
For more O’Brien perspective, the coach recorded an interview with his former college teammate and current Yahoo Sports Radio host John Harris. The coach offers some insights as to why he was able to have such success as a first-year coach under such difficult circumstances. It’s worth a listen.
