    Maybe I’m just unfamiliar with Penn State’s performance this last season, but is Bill O’Brien generally considered an offensive mastermind? I understand that he was the OC of the Patriots and everything, but I don’t know if I’d put him in the same class as Chip Kelly in terms of offensive prowess.

    Good hire. Stehlik has deep local ties and has a depth of professional sports experience.

    Wasn’t O’Brien the OC that got into a big argument with Tom Brady on the sideline? The last time I checked, the Pats offense has been better with McDaniels as their OC

    O’Brien worked wonders with Matt McGloin at Penn State. That kid was basically a walk-on QB. Plus, the situation at PSU was beyond difficult. Look what Luke Fickell could not do at OSU for his 1 season. I would jump at the chance to hire him.

    Brent is a good hire. Lutheran West grad from class of 95.
