When asked about the rumors suggesting Patriots offensive coordinator Bill O'Brien  may be in line for the Penn State head coaching position after their 49-21 win over the Bills, both Patriots coach Bill Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady chose not to elaborate on the matter.
"I don't know what's going to happen," Brady said. "I hope he's here for a long time. I told him that, too."
Belichick offered even less insight on the matter.
"Just trying to beat Buffalo today, and now we're moving on to whatever's next," the coach said when asked about the reports. "I don't have anything to say about any other situation other than the New England Patriots."
Brady did reiterate his admiration for O'Brien, whom he had well-publicized run-in with in the final minutes of the Patriots' Dec. 11 win against the Redskins.
"He's been a great coach and friend," the QB said. "We have a great relationship. Probably a very unique relationship in that we communicate all the time. I always enjoy working with him. He's done an incredible job with this team and this offense. He expects nothing less than our best."
