Newly hired Houston Texans coach Bill O’Brien is leaving Penn State with a very ugly rant on the table. Apparently O'Brien did not appreciate the Joe Paterno loyalists
over the two years he spent with the Nittany Lions. Here is columnist David Jones of Pennsylvania’s Patriot News description an off-the record conversation the two had in December in which O’Brien let it all out...
“You can print this: You can print that I don’t really give a [expletive] what the ‘Paterno people’ think about what I do with this program. I’ve done everything I can to show respect to Coach Paterno. Everything in my power. So I could really care less about what the Paterno faction of people, or whatever you call them, think about what I do with the program. I’m tired of it.
“For any ‘Paterno person’ to have any objection to what I’m doing, it makes me wanna put my fist through this windshield right now…”
“I’m trying to field the most competitive football team I can with near-death penalty [expletive] sanctions. Every time I say something like that and somebody prints it, it’s skewed as an excuse. And I’m not an excuse-maker. I’m trying to do the best I can for the kids in that program. That’s all I care about is the kids in that program. As long as I’m the head football coach here….”
“That’s why, in probably about a month, they’re gonna be [expletive] looking for a new coach.”
Yikes Who is Penn State's next coach?
