Joyner tells The Associated Press that he and O'Brien speak several times a week and when they do they talk ``in terms of years and years. We make plans for years and years.''

O'Brien led the Nittany Lions to eight victories last season, his first with the school. Penn State was in the first season of a four-year postseason ban, part of severe NCAA sanctions related to the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal.

O'Brien, a former NFL assistant, was courted by NFL teams after the season, but chose to stay put.

Joyner says of O'Brien: ``I think we're going to have this guy for a long time.''
