Penn State will hold its second Coaches Caravan series for two weeks this spring, according to a press release.
Last year, the first Coaches Caravan stopped at 18 locations across the Northeast during April and May. Penn State football coach Bill O’Brien was at each stop to meet with Penn State sports fans. He was joined by other Penn State coaches along the trip.
Beginning on April 30 this year, the Coaches Caravan will travel to 12 locations and travel on a specialized Fullington bus. O’Brien is scheduled to make an appearance at all of the stops with at least one other Penn State head coach.
“We had a great turnout of Penn State alumni and fans during the Coaches Caravan last year and I enjoyed meeting so many people who have great pride and passion for Penn State,” O’Brien said in the press release. “It’s important for me to get around Pennsylvania and other areas where we have a lot of alumni and give them a chance to get to know me and to hear from them. They need to hear about my philosophy and vision for the future and how we are moving forward. I knew Penn State was a special place when I came here and my experiences over the past year have only made that more apparent.”

Philadelphia (evening reception)
Washington, D.C. (evening reception)
