College Football Videos
Penn State football coach Bill O'Brien is a finalist for another national coach of the year award.
O'Brien, Notre Dame's Brian Kelly and Kansas State's Bill Snyder were named finalists Wednesday for the Maxwell Football Club's Collegiate Coach of the Year.
O'Brien led the Nittany Lions to an 8-4 season in his first year and kept the football program together after the NCAA levied severe sanctions against Penn State in July.
O'Brien, who set a Penn State record for wins by a first-year head coach, is also a finalist for the Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year and Liberty Mutual Coach of the Year awards.
O'Brien swept Big Ten Coach of the Year honors last week, winning the award in media as well as coaches' voting.
