According to a report in response to the earlier speculation that Bill O'Brien was a leading candidate to coach the Texans, O'Brien has told a recruit that he is staying at Penn State.
24/7 Sports reports Thomas Holley, a Penn State verbal commit, spoke with O'Brien on the phone on Saturday.
"I just got off the phone with him," Holley says in the report. "He said he isn't going. It's not true."
Holley is ranked by Rivals as 63rd overall in their class of 2014.
