Penn State coach: Goal to 'keep team together'

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - July 24, 2012

O'Brien in a conference call with reporters Tuesday said no current member of the team has indicated they will transfer following the NCAA sanctions imposed on Penn State. The penalties allow current players to transfer immediately without restrictions.

Penn State also has a four-year postseason ban, but O'Brien equated home contests at massive Beaver Stadium to playing in bowl games six or seven times a year. O'Brien says it's important Penn State will remain on TV.

He said he felt good about his team and called his players "a bunch of standup, tough and smart Penn State kids."
