Penn State football: Nittany Lions coach Bill O’Brien to be profiled on Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel

Penn State football coach Bill O’Brien and his family will be profiled on the next episode of HBO’s Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel.

The episode, filmed recently in town when Andrea Kremer sat down with O’Brien, will be shown at 10 p.m. Tuesday, then re-air several times in the coming weeks. The program also will be available on HBO On Demand from May 27-June 17.

O’Brien was selected the 2012 Bear Bryant, Maxwell Football Club and ESPN Coach of the Year nationally after leading the Nittany Lions to wins in eight of their final 10 games, and also was named the Big Ten’s Coach of the Year in his first season at Penn State.

The Nittany Lions open their season Aug. 31 against Syracuse at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.
