Penn State Coaching Search: Tom Bradley Says "We're Going To Have A New Football Coach Next Year"

Penn State interim coach Tom Bradley has been interviewed for the full time job, but his comments after his teams’ blowout at the hands of Houston in TicketCity Bowl seem to suggest he won’t have the job next year. Asked whether he felt that an era had ended at Penn State as he was walking off the field, Bradley said,

"Well, obviously we’re going to have a new football coach next year here for sure, whoever that may be."

When he was pressed as to whether he was confirming that he would not be named the full time coach, he did back track a bit.

"I didn’t say it wasn’t going to be me," Bradley said. "Can’t give you guys all the secrets. I don’t know who it’s going to be. I said this before. Dr. Joyner’s committee are going to make this decision. I don’t have a date when it’s going to be. He hasn’t set a time frame exactly when it’s going to happen. I also said I had the opportunity to go speak to the committee. I had an opportunity to plead my case. "

While they haven’t exactly set a timeline, the AD has stated that they want to have a coach in place to speak and interact with recruits prior to the February 3rd national signing day.
