Former Penn State coach O'Brien anticipates "Hard Knocks" debut
Apparently former Penn State coach Bill O’Brien will not be on the edge of his seat anticipating his reality TV debut.
The current Houston Texans coach has been followed in training camp by HBO’s “Hard Knocks,” which will premiere Tuesday at 10 p.m. ET. According to Fox Texans reporter Mark Berman, O’Brien made sure he provided family with a disclaimer.

O’Brien, who coached Penn State for two seasons before taking the Texans job in 2014, was the subject of questions during the Nittany Lions’ media availability today.
Senior defensive tackle Anthony Zettel still remembers his former coach’s practice demeanor.

For the sake of O’Brien, lets hope he kept it PG13 for the cameras.
