NFL via Getty Images(FOXBOROUGH, Mass.) — Penn State, in the process of looking for a new head football coach in the wake of the Sandusky scandal, will interview New England Patriots offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien.

Nittany Lions defensive coordinator Tom Bradley has coached the football team on an interim basis since the firing of Joe Paterno, who was let go in November in the wake of a sex abuse scandal involving former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky.

The Patriots have a first-round bye in the NFL playoffs.
