DUBOIS – The Penn State Coaches Caravan will make a stop at Penn State DuBois for a lunch-time program May 9, during a two-week tour that will visit 12 locations.
The tour begins April 30, with football coach Bill O’Brien headlining events at Penn State alumni strongholds across Pennsylvania and the Mid-Atlantic. The 2012 Bear Bryant and Maxwell Football Club national Coach of the Year will participate in all 12 Coaches Caravan stops and will be joined by other head coaches at each event. The April 30 opening stop at the Penn State Berks campus in Reading is sold out.
Three more dynamic Penn State mentors are set to join O’Brien on the Coaches Caravan during the first week (April 30-May 2). The coaches participating during the second week (May 7-9) of the tour are to be announced.
At each Coaches Caravan stop, Penn State alumni and fans will have the opportunity to hear from O’Brien and at least one other head coach and ask questions about the Nittany Lions’ nationally recognized 31-sport athletic program at a lunch or evening event.
More than 2,000 Penn State alumni and fans signed up for Caravan stops during the first two weeks of registration, with the Reading event reaching capacity in four days. Advance registration is required for all Coaches Caravan events.
