Source: Bradley not informed of decision

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported Thursday night that New England Patriots offensive coordinator Bill O'Brien has agreed to be the next head coach at Penn State, according to his sources.

That said, sources close to Penn State's interim head coach, Tom Bradley, tell Blue White Illustrated that he has not been informed of this decision by anyone related to the university in an official capacity.

Following the firing of former coach Joe Paterno on Nov. 9, O'Brien's hiring marks the end of a 39-day search since a six-person committee was formed, headed by acting athletic director Dave Joyner.

At this point, Blue White Illustrated has been unable to confirm Mortensen's report independently.

Additionally, sources close to current Penn State players say they have not been told of a decision by Penn State in any official capacity as of Thursday night.

Penn State has not confirmed the report. Penn State Sports Information director Jeff Nelson responded to inquiries via text message, saying, "We will comment when we name the new coach."
