Bill O'Brien, 15th Head Football Coach

Bill O'Brien William J. "Bill" O'Brien, named Penn State University's 15th Head Coach on January 6th, 2012, was born October 23, 1969 in Dorchester, Massachusetts and attended St. John's Preparatory School in Danvers, Massachusetts. After graduating O'Brien attended Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island, where he played defensive end and linebacker for the Bears from 1990-92.

O'Brien began his coaching career in 1993 at Brown University before spending more than a decade coaching in the ACC. He joined the New England Patriots in 2007 where he eventually served as quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator in 2011. In 2012, he was hired by Penn State to take over a program that had just endured a child sex abuse scandal. In his first season as head coach, he led the team to an 8-4 record and won ESPN's National Coach of the Year award. After the 2012 season, O'Brien garnered significant interest to return to the National Football League (NFL) as a head coach and interviewed with both the Philadelphia Eagles and the Cleveland Browns. Ultimately, O'Brien decided to stay at Penn State citing that it would send a poor message to leave after just one season. However, after his second season he left Penn State to become the head coach of the NFL's Houston Texans.
