IF that's the case, I suppose you would start spewing insults if her son was in here posting?
Stupid troll, Browns wouldnt be interested in that douche.
As he wouldn't because as he already said I am the wife of a friend.
OP has a legit question refrencing several news outlets...
PSU fans need to put the butthurt of this possibility aside and answer the question.
Doesn't he have a daughter getting really good treatment at the medical center? Would that also incline him to stay?
Where's the question in your OP, exactly?
Cleveland clinic is a great hospital. I know because I was a heart patient there and if I had a medical problem I would like to live close to their so I am sure that may influence a decision if his daughter is sick but I am sure it wouldn't be the deciding factor.
Some people are into that sort of thing.

I am not a devidee minion. I have my own mind and I asked a legitimate question that I posted a link to.
Well I am not so why don't you take that garbage elsewhere.
Why so defensive?
Not defensive what so ever. However I asked a legitimate question and you guys just want to throw insults instead of discussing the topic that I asked about.
In a serious manner, yes.
It is actually his son with a rare condition that needs treatment (others with a bit more knowledge can elaborate if they wish).
They do not want to constantly uproot the family and have their son change doctors frequently especially considering the treatment they receive in State College.
Couple their unwillingness to continuously relocate, with the size if O'Brien's contract and the job security he has at Penn State with the automatic extension derived from the sanctions announcement, along with the very hefty buyout that came along with it - and it is very unlikely that he leaves, nor would it be very cost-effective for an NFL organization to take that on.
Sure it's a fun name to have thrown around this time of year as he's a hot story with the way he guided Penn State since he arrived, but when you actually look at the details surrounding his situation as opposed to "insert hot young offensive-minded college coach here" you see how unlikely it is that he actually leaves.

BOB isn't leaving PSU for the Browns. He probably is on the shortlist, because he is one of the biggest names in coaching right now, but I'd be shocked if he left for after one year for the Browns job. The guy wants the New England job and should be at PSU until that opens up.
Where's the question?
Not sure if you're familiar with the English language, but usually a question goes along with that little loopy thing called a question mark.
Hello troll, meet pot and kettle... they're black.
Wow really. You just can't stop with the insults. Why would I want to even acknowlege you?
I think uprooting the family will be challenging but if the brownies could sell him on Cleveland Clinic and University Hospitals he'd see it's really no comparison, unless he and his son are very attached to his physician
It all depends on what his condition is I guess. I know that when I had my surgery my doctor's wanted to send me to Toledo and I told them absolutely not. That if I was going anywhere I was going to cleveland clinic since it was the #1 heart hospital in the country. I don't care where I lived I would have chose cleveland clinic hands down every time.
Meh I hope BOB stay's just for the good of PSU and college football. I can't speak for him but, I'm sure it's tempting and he wants to end up in the NFL.
If the money was right any coaching position at the next level would be tempting. Can't say that someone at least wouldn't consider it if the money is that good and it's at the next level.
Agreed, I did a clinical rotation there and was blown away.
His son has Lissencephaly, which is neural condition. After checking CC is ranked 3rd in the nation for pediatric neurology and neurosurgery.
Here is an article on what his son has. Its a rare neurological disorder Lissencephaly. He can’t walk or talk, can’t feed himself, can’t do things typical boys can do.
NCAA college football news, standings, trade rumors, scores, schedules and more 2012-13 coverage on Sporting News.
The place is amazing they saved my life and I'm sure could do wonders to help the boy.
PSU should be able to match an NFL offer money wise. He'll more than likely get a raise out of this.
