Bill O'Brien Hires Himself

Bill O'Brien said that he will not only be the head coach at Penn State, he will also be the offensive coordinator. ORLY? To not give O'Brien any credit for the offensive success at New England is myopic--obviously, he played a large role. But so did guys like Rob Gronkowski and former Michigan alum Tom Brady, so it's natural to think he can/will do a good job. But can he do as good a job as head coach with this added responsibility? With everything that's going on right now--getting ready for the AFC Championship, the homestretch in recruiting, and hiring a staff that has one Ted Roof in it (LOLWUT?) well, I don't know about this move. Will it work? Sure, it might. But head coach is a tough job. It's tougher if you've never been one before, regardless of how much assistant coach experience you have, and he's in a wholly unique situation at Penn State that no other coach has found hinself in before. And now he adds offensive coordinator to his duties as well? Color me dubious.
