Bill O'Brien's First Penn State Press Conference Scheduled For Saturday Morning

New Penn St. Nittany Lions head coach Bill O'Brien will be formally introduced Saturday morning. He'll be asked questions, hopefully not by any of these people. But even Rich Rodriguez himself when he was hired at Michigan wasn't stepping into a press conference as volatile as this one.

O'Brien will be asked by the lack of support his hire has already stirred up among former players, who felt excluded from the coaching search process. He'll be asked about what could be a vanishing recruiting class, what he'll do if he has to coach with the Patriots through February, his plans to seal ties between the school and community, his discipline standards, and on and on. Again, unless these people show up.

TV time and online streaming viewing information:

Penn State@penn_state Bill O'Brien will be introduced at 11:30 a.m. news conference Saturday, airing live on @bigtennetwork and streaming at BTN.com
