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.
