The Bill O’Brien exodus from Penn State appears to be official.

O’Brien took over the program in 2012 after Penn State fired the late Joe Paterno amid the Jerry Sandusky scandal.
O’Brien took the job despite a myriad of NCAA violations and punishments that were levied upon the program.
In his two seasons at Penn State, O’Brien led the Nittany Lions to a 15-9 record.
