    PSU O'Brien the only person on earth to benefit from PSU NCAA Sanctions

    he had a clause in deal where if PSU was hit with sanctions, he'd get an automatic contract extension that matched the number of years. It was a four year bowl ban..so he now has a deal through 2020...which nets him another $9.2 million guaranteed.

    Who else benefited from PSU FB getting hammer, other than him

    He's not the only one who benefitted. Lots of kids will get the chance to walk on at PSU who never would have had a shot of playing at a big time football program without these sanctions.

    Other schools who get transfers or decommits like Michigan did the other day are benefitting.

    He's a smart man to have negotiated that into his contract and probably wouldn't have taken the job without it.

    I'd say that a bunch of people in the Pitt AD will benefit. A lot of recruits are going to want to stay in Pennsylvania that would have gone to PSU over the next 5 years...or more.

    He must have really wanted this opportunity. Most, I would bet, would have an escape clause and not added years.

    He wouldn't have got the job if PSU weren't facing heavy sanctions. Penn St would probably have Urban Meyer if JoePa had announced he was retiring after the 2011 season sometime last summer.

    Urban was never going anywhere but fOSU.

    benefactors too numerous to mention.

    how about the recipients of the $60MM...

    how about his assistant coaches, for starters....if you want to look at it from purely a 'job security/income' p.o.v.

    Good for him, he seems like a stand up guy and a good coach.

    let's just say that $60mm isn't the only amount of money that PSU will have to cough up...

    i'm guessing they are happy for 'justice' but i'd have to think if lawsuits haven't started already, they are soon to come.

    Plus the approximate $13mm/yr of the B1G take...or another $50+mm.
