Munchak says “nothing has been going on” with Penn State

Titans coach Mike Munchak says he’s focused on his job in Tennessee, despite talk that he could be interested in taking over at Penn State.

Munchak was one of three current NFL coaches (the others were Colts head coach Jim Caldwell and Packers assistant Darren Perry) whose names were mentioned in a State College News story abut possible successors to Joe Paterno. But Munchak told Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean he doesn’t know anything about it.

“I haven’t contacted anybody about the Penn State job,” Munchak told Wyatt. “Nothing has been going on. I haven’t reached out to anyone.”

Munchak said he signed a three-year contract with the Titans in February and doesn’t have an agent, which sounds like someone who’s not looking to go elsewhere.

A native of Scranton, Pennsylvania, Munchak played for Paterno at Penn State from 1978 to 1981.

    Caldwell should go back to Wake Forest. That’s about his speed. Penn State, NO. PSU is going to have a hard time finding anyone willing to step Into that mess.

    I think Penn State would do well to get an “outsider” to replace Paterno. That program seems a little too insulated from the outside world.

    NO ONE WHO PLAYED FOR PATERNO OR COACHED FOR HIM WILL GET THAT JOB.

    Nick Saban “I am not the Alabama Coach”

    Urban Myer “I have not received any offer from Ohi0 State”

    Munchak“I haven’t contacted anybody about the Penn State job”

    Tennessee Titans have an opening for head coach in January.

    I heard Michael Scott isn’t doing much these days maybe he’ll move back to PA to take over.

    What, did Sandusky touch him too?

    For some reason, that picture always makes me think of Steve Martin wearing the “arrow through his head” hat.

    Jim Caldwell will never be a head coach at any level again.

    Just like Urban Meyer said nothing was going on with Ohio State

    Just because some coaches lie doesn’t mean all do. What are Bill Cowher and Jon Gruden doing these days?

    You folks who think the next Penn State hire will be about anything but generating exponentially more future football revenues are serious tools.

    This is the guy that’s supposed to be better than Mike Wallace?

    The NCAA lawyers are tripping over themselves to find a way to suspend PSU. The PC outrage is deafening. No HC is going to go anywhere near there until that mess is somewhat contained.

    What establish head coach would want to go to Penn State? That program probably is at least two decades away from being a competitive program again.
