Penn State coach Bill O'Brien quietly had his contract revised last summer to reduce any potential buyout owed to the university that an NFL team might owe if he takes an NFL job, according to ESPN.
Per the report, O'Brien would like to reduce the buyout even more.
Now, his $19.33 million buyout has been reduced to $6.48 million if he goes to the NFL. Another school would owe O'Brien $11.08 million for a buyout.
Last year, O'Brien drew interest from the Philadelphia Eagles, Cleveland Browns, Arizona Cardinals and San Diego Chargers. O'Brien could be on the short list for NFL jobs again.
The former New England Patriots offensive coordinator is highly regarded in NFL and collegiate circles.
