Penn State is coming off a brutal 63-14 loss to Ohio State last Saturday, but that didn’t stop Nittany Lions head coach Bill O’Brien from getting in the Halloween spirit Thursday.
A brief video posted to the Penn State Football Facebook page showed O’Brien dressed in a full, one-piece Nittany Lion costume – with the ears and everything -- while conducting practice in preparation for Saturday's home game with Illinois.
Offensive tackle Garry Gilliam tweeted about O'Brien's costume earlier Friday, but it took a tweet from the official Penn State account for the world to see O'Brien's fantastic costume.
Coach Obrien came out during practice in a Nittany Lion costume yesterday haha
