Penn State coach Bill O'Brien has raised the possibility of changing the Nittany Lions' classic blue and white uniforms.

O'Brien has spoken with Nike about changing the uniforms, he told players' parents in a conference call Tuesday, the Reading Eagle reported.

"It might be easier said than done (for this season)," O'Brien said, according to the Eagle. "I'm not sure we can get it done this year."

He also is looking into adding player names to the back of the jerseys for the first time, according to the newspaper.

"I reserve the right to change my mind," O'Brien said Thursday during the Big Ten Media Days.
