Reaction to Bill O'Brien & Penn State
By Mike Reiss
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Reaction from coaches and players on reports that Patriots offensive coordinator Bill O'Brien is Penn State's top choice to become their next head coach:
Bill Belichick: "We were just trying to beat Buffalo today and we're moving on to whatever's next. I don't have anything to say about any other situation other than the New England Patriots."
Tom Brady: "He’s been a great coach and friend. We have a great relationship; probably a very unique relationship in that we communicate all the time. I always enjoy working with him and he’s done an incredible job with this team and this offense. He expects nothing less than our best. ... I don’t know what’s going to happen. I hope he’s here for a long time and I told him that too."
Wes Welker: "We are not really worried about that right now. Our focus is here and on the postseason. We have a chance and everybody is going to take full advantage of it."
