DUBOIS – Penn State’s head football coach Bill O’Brien and men’s volleyball coach Mark Pavlik will attend the Coaches Caravan stop at Penn State DuBois on May 9.
O’Brien will headline the 12-stop bus tour of many Penn State alumni strongholds across Pennsylvania and the Mid-Atlantic. The two-week tour, jointly sponsored by the Penn State Alumni Association and the Nittany Lion Club, begins on April 30.
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. The DuBois stop featuring Pavlik is scheduled as a luncheon event.
Pavlik is in his 19th season at the helm of the Penn State program. He has guided the Nittany Lions to 18 of their 29 EIVA Championships, including in 2013, enabling the Nittany Lions to host the EIVA Tournament for the 15th straight season. The Nittany Lions aim to make their 15th consecutive appearance in the NCAA Championship after advancing to the NCAA semifinals in 2012 for the 27th time. Pavlik owns a career record of 452-133 and led Penn State to the 2008 NCAA title.
