    Bill O’Brien did what almost every college football coach does when a better opportunity comes along—he took it and ran. That, unfortunately, is the nature of the job.

    It sure was nice of Penn State University to pad head football coach Bill O’Brien’s bank account with a raise, not to mention throw in some additional perks such as additional access to a private jet. Based on the job he did of leading the program to an 8-4 record last year, he earned all…
