O'Brien at Penn St. until Wednesday

Patriots offensive coordinator Bill O'Brien is splitting this week between Foxborough and Penn State's campus, which highlights his balancing act between his present job and future job.

O'Brien spoke with Joe Juliano of the Philadelphia Inquirer (link here), and here is a snippet from the piece:

You could say that Bill O'Brien's life is beyond busy right now. But that's what happens when you divide duties between being the offensive coordinator of the Super Bowl-bound New England Patriots and assuming control over the storied football program at Penn State.

O'Brien, who is working in his office at the Lasch Football Building until Wednesday night, when he returns to New England to begin preparations for Super Bowl XLVI against the New York Giants, told The Inquirer in a 1-on-1 interview that his normal work day for the Patriots and Penn State leaves him time for about three to four hours sleep per night.

"But that's all right," he said. "That's all you need."
