Penn State introduce first new coach in 46 years

Penn State introduce first new coach in 46 years

After a two-month search to replace the disgraced American football great Joe Paterno, Bill O'Brien was formally introduced as Penn State's new coach on Saturday.
The 42-year-old O'Brien reiterated his intention to remain offensive coordinator for the New England Patriots for the duration of their NFL playoffs run. New England has a bye this weekend.
O'Brien replaces Paterno, who was fired on Nov. 9 in the aftermath of child sex abuse charges against retired assistant coach Jerry Sandusky. Not only is O'Brien replacing Division I's most successful coach, but he must also guide a program shrouded in uncertainty. Besides the criminal investigation into Sandusky, the NCAA has launched its own inquiry.
