Bill O’Brien Coming to a City Near You

After great success last spring, the Penn State Coaches Caravan is back for a second straight year, scheduled to make 12 total stops over a 10-day span beginning with lunch in Reading and dinner in Philadelphia on Tuesday, April 30th.

Bill O’Brien will headline the trip and will be joined by at least one other Penn State coach at every stop. Nine of the 12 destinations are set in Pennsylvania while there will also be three more stops in out-of-state large metropolitan areas with large Nittany Lion alumni bases.

“It’s important for me to get around Pennsylvania and other areas where we have a lot of alumni and give them a chance to get to know me and to hear from them. They need to hear about my philosophy and vision for the future and how we are moving forward. I knew Penn State was a special place when I came here and my experiences over the past year only made that more apparent,” said O’Brien in a press release announcing the caravan.

Additional details including specific locations, other participating coaches, and registration information should be available soon. Members of the Penn State Alumni Association and Nittany Lion Club can register a week from now, March 12th, while the general public can begin to sign up on March 15th.
