STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) - Bill O'Brien said his love for coaching Penn State outweighed a desire to pursue opportunities to move to the pinnacle of his profession and a big payday from the NFL.
A year to the day after being first introduced in Happy Valley, O'Brien also asserted several times that he has not asked, nor received a raise, and that no one has approached him about a salary bump, either.
O'Brien spoke at Beaver Stadium for the first time since the end of an 8-4 season, a smashing success considering the NCAA sanctions against the program for the Jerry Sandusky child molestation scandal.
He said Monday he had conversations with a few NFL teams who reached out last week while he was on vacation, but no job was ever offered.
