Outgoing coach Tom Bradley’s full statement: “Penn State will always have my support” – CDT
Tom Bradley, past interim coach of the Penn State Nittany Lions, is likely going to be elsewhere moving forward. A lifer at Penn State, starting as a player and then a graduate assistant, position coach, defensive coordinator and ultimately interim head coach is one of the only people to have emerged from the Jerry Sandusky scandal more highly regarded than previously. He had the unenviable task of taking over for a legend, holding the job he always wanted under terrible circumstances with little or no chance of keeping it. He held his head high, represented the program well and even beat Ohio State. Of the Penn State coaches, he is the one who got the rawest deal and he did not let it outwardly effect him.
I’m still working on my Bill O’Brien post, I’ll have it in the next day or so.
