Bill O’Brien Named Big Ten Men’s Coach of the Year

If you thought the awards train for Bill O’Brien was over, you were wrong.

The Bear Bryant, Maxwell Club, ESPN, and Big Ten Coach of the Year winner added another trophy to his case yesterday after being named as the Big Ten Men’s Coach of the Year. O’Brien beat out fellow Nittany Lion’s coach Cael Sanderson and three other conference coaches for the honor.

“Like I’ve said many times, coach of the year awards are about the program, and everybody involved in that program,” the humble O’Brien said on the BTN.

“We’re extremely excited about the 2013 season. Our guys are working hard right now in preparation for training camp, and we can’t wait for that, and our opener against Syracuse,” O’Brien said, reminiscent of his predecessor.
