Ohio State hired new offensive coordinator Bill O'Brien on January 18th, and there is a perfect chance he won't be around to coach a single game for the team.
Last week, Boston College head coach Jeff Hafley took the Green Bay Packers defensive coach job, leaving a head coaching vacancy for Boston College.
O'Brien, being a Massachusetts native, was thrown as one of the hot names for the job, and on Monday, Rich Thompson from the Boston Herald reported, "heard Boston College and Bill O'Brien are down to the minor details. Possible announcement on Wednesday. He won't come cheap with a lot of incentives."
At the moment, O'Brien could be leaving the Buckeyes and taking the Boston College job.
O'Brien hasn't been a head coach since being fired from the Houston Texans in 2020 and served as an offensive coordinator for Alabama and the New England Patriots the past few years.
O'Brien was a head coach in college football from 2012-2013 when he was the head man at Penn State, and Boston College would be an excellent job for him. It gets him back to being a head coach, and he gets to live in an area he is very familiar with.
