Penn State Coaches Caravan To Hit The Road This Spring
Coaches Bill O’Brien and Patrick Chambers to Headline Seven State Bus Tour
UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa., April 11, 2012 – The Nittany Lion Club and the Penn State Alumni Association will team up to provide fans the chance to meet and hear from some of the leaders of Penn State Athletics this spring when the Penn State Coaches Caravan hits the road for destinations across Nittany Nation, encompassing seven states and Washington, D.C.
Nittany Lion football coach Bill O’Brien will headline the bus tour of many Penn State alumni strongholds across Pennsylvania and the East Coast. The first-year coach is scheduled to participate in all 18 Coaches Caravan stops across nine days in late April and early May.
O’Brien will be joined by several other Penn State head coaches on varying Coaches Caravan stops, including Nittany Lion basketball coach Patrick Chambers during the first week, which begins with two events in Philadelphia on Monday, April 30.
O’Brien and selected coaches will speak and answer questions from Penn State fans at every Coaches Caravan stop. Field hockey coach Char Morett also is confirmed for Philadelphia and other Penn State head coaches and the events they are attending will be announced later this month.
The Penn State Coaches Caravan will feature two stops on each of nine days of the tour spread over three consecutive weeks this spring, starting April 30 in Philadelphia. Three of the Coaches Caravan events will be held at Penn State Commonwealth campuses in Altoona, Erie and Hazleton.
