Bill O’Brien Named Maxwell Club Collegiate Coach of the Year

Bill O’Brien was named the Maxwell Club collegiate Coach of the Year earlier today.

“Coach O’Brien has engineered a tremendous season for the Penn State football program while overcoming obstacles that many considered to be insurmountable,” stated Mark Wolpert, Maxwell Football Club Executive Director. “The team’s 8-4 record is a great testament to the hard work of Coach O’Brien and his staff, and also to the dedication shown by the student-athletes involved in the football program at Penn State.”

This is O’Brien’s second national Coach of the Year honor, after being named ESPN’s coach of the year. Additionally, O’Brien has been named a finalist for the Bear Bryant Coach of the Year award and the Liberty Mutual Coach of the Year award along with the Dapper Dan Sportsman of the Year award. He was also a finalist for the Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year award, but that ultimately went to Notre Dame’s Brian Kelly. On the conference level, O’Brien also won Big Ten Coach of the Year a few weeks ago.

Along with O’Brien, the senior class will also be honored for their spirit by the Maxwell Football Club at a March 1st awards Gala in Atlantic City.
