Belichick statement on O’Brien

Posted on January 7, 2012


Patriots’ head coach Bill Belichick released the following statement on Bill O’Brien being named the new head coach at Penn St.:

“Over the course of his long coaching career, Bill O’Brien has met every personal and professional challenge head on with great passion and  competitiveness.  I expect Bill to draw on his deep background in college football and the NFL to continue attracting and developing top players.    For five years, Bill’s outstanding work with our quarterbacks and entire offense has led to record-setting performances.  His presence and command before our team has grown into that of a inspirational leader.  This is a great match between a storied program and a old-school football coach.  Bill will be up to the task and I couldn’t be happier for him, Colleen and the O’Brien family.”
