Bill O’Brien on Sanction Reductions: ‘Penn State Is a Fantastic Place’
If you are still mad at Bill O’Brien for leaving Penn State, for the love of god, put that aside today.
The man who lead the incredible team that kept Penn State football afloat during unimaginably difficult times had a regularly scheduled press conference with the Houston Texans today about an hour after the sanction reductions were announced. He had some warm things to say about his former team:

Bill O’Brien, just now, per reporters in Houston: “I think that’s great news for Penn State.”

If it weren’t for O’Brien sticking with this program longer than any other coach would given the circumstances, today wouldn’t be nearly as exciting. A huge thank you to coach O’Brien and the 2012 team that weathered those difficult times.
