BOSTON (CBS) – New England Patriots offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien is expected to receive interview offers from other teams, according to the NFL Network.

O’Brien, in the final year of his contract, could be linked to the Kansas City Chiefs as a possible “coach in waiting,” Jason La Canfora reports. Currently Romeo Crennel is manning the KC sidelines in place of fired head coach Todd Haley, but some feel O’Brien could be brought on to inherit the job when Crennel steps aside.

Former Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels has also been linked to the KC staff.

At least seven teams will be interviewing head coaching candidates this offseason, and O’Brien could see his stock rise with a successful playoff run in New England.

La Canfora is also reporting O’Brien is among the list of candidates that Penn State has compiled for its opening at head coach.
