New England Patriots

BOSTON (CBS) – New England Patriots offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien is on the verge of taking over for Joe Paterno as head football coach of Penn State, according to a report by USA Today.

Joe Seraceno tweeted early Sunday that the two sides only need to work out contract details before O’Brien is officially named Paterno’s successor.

O’Brien is in his fifth season in New England and first as the Pats offensive coordinator. He spent the previous two seasons as quarterback coach and offensive play-caller without the official title of offensive coordinator.

His contract with New England is set to expire after this season.

O’Brien began his coaching career in the college ranks, taking over as tight ends coach at his alma mater Brown in 1993. His experience in the college game includes a stint as assistant head coach/offensive coordinator at Georgia Tech, with stops in Maryland and Duke as well.
