Ian Rapoport first reported O’Brien as a “strong option” to return to the Patriots as Bill Belichick’s offensive coordinator next season. O’Brien previously served on Belichick’s from 2007 to 2012, when he was hired as head coach at Penn State.
“Relative to working in the NFL, no,” O’Brien said Wednesday when asked if he had been contacted by any other NFL organizations. “And relative to working here, like I said I love it here, I’ve loved my experience here. I’m very focused on this game coming up and whatever conversations happen after this game, those will take place when they take place.”
During Wednesday’s press conference, O’Brien also said he had not spoken to anyone with the Patriots in regards to a job, before mentioning that the focus has been on winning the Tide’s bowl game.
“I haven’t spoken to anyone in New England since probably last April,” he said of a visit he made with the Patriots last spring. “We’re very focused on this game and focused on coaching this team to the best of our ability.”
