Penn State football coach Bill O’Brien to visit Williamsport on May 7

Penn State football coach Bill O’Brien will visit Williamsport for a lunch stop on Tuesday, May 7, as part of the 2013 Penn State Coaches Caravan.

The full schedule of dates were announced Tuesday by the school. Other details, including site, time, registration, and other featured guests will be announced soon.

At each stop, attendees can hear from O’Brien and at least one other head coach and ask questions about the Nittany Lions’ 31-sport athletic program. O’Brien is scheduled to participate in all 12 Coaches Caravan stops and will be joined by other Penn State head coaches on the tour, who also will meet with fans during the lunch or evening receptions prior to the program.

The Caravan, jointly sponsored by the Penn State Alumni Association and the Nittany Lion Club, kicks off April 30 with events in Reading and Philadelphia and will run through May 9. Other announced stops are Baltimore, Washington, Lancaster, Harrisburg, Allentown, New York City, Scranton, DuBois, and Pittsburgh.

O’Brien was selected the 2012 Bear Bryant, Maxwell Football Club and ESPN National Coach of the Year and the Big Ten Coach of the Year after leading the Nittany Lions to an 8-4 record. During each of the Coaches Caravan events, Coach O’Brien will talk about his core principles for the program, vision for Penn State football, and preparations for the 2013 season, as well as appealing to alumni and fans interested in making a difference.

Registration for Penn State Alumni Association and Nittany Lion Club members to attend opens March 12 and registration for the general public begins March 15.
