Penn State QB recruit Christian Hackenberg unconcerned about rumors of Bill O'Brien to NFL

Penn State commitment Christian Hackenberg is confident that Bill O'Brien will not take an NFL job, he told ESPN Sunday.

Earlier Sunday, ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported that O'Brien was a candidate for several NFL jobs.

O'Brien, 43, won the Big Ten Coach of the Year Award for 2012, as he guided the sanction-riddled Nittany Lions to an impressive eight-win season. Previously, O'Brien was the offensive coordinator for the New England Patriots.
