Did Joe Biden confirm that he'll be working at Penn?

Vice President Joe Biden has pretty much confirmed his plan to head to the University of Pennsylvania after his time as President Barack Obama's right-hand man is up.

Biden revealed the details on Tuesday when talking with a member of California Sen. Kamala Harris' entourage after she was sworn in, according to Quartz.

When asked about his post-government plans, Biden said that he will head to Penn to work in foreign policy. He also said that he'll continue his work with the Cancer Moonshot through The Biden Trust.

Biden launched the initiative last year at Penn's Abramson Cancer Center, after his son, Beau Biden, died from brain cancer in May 2015.

Beau Biden graduated from the College of Arts and Sciences in 1991.

Quartz put together a short clip of the exchange, heard on CSPAN, that can be seen here.

Rumors circulated a couple weeks ago of Biden's potential position at Penn but had not been confirmed.

Biden, a six-term senator representing Delaware, is no stranger to the area. He was at Penn no less than a year ago to watch his granddaughter graduate from the Ivy League school and to endorse Hillary Clinton for president. 

A Penn spokesperson declined to comment.
