Titans head coach Mike Munchak is the first choice of the Penn State search committee tasked with finding a replacement for Joe Paterno.
The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that Penn State is getting close to hiring a head coach, and the school wants Munchak, who played for Paterno at Penn State in the 1970s and 1980s.
What’s not known is whether Munchak wants the job. He said four weeks ago that he hadn’t talked to Penn State, but that doesn’t mean he’d turn down the job if offered to him. At the moment Munchak is preparing for the Titans’ season finale against the Texans, and if the Titans win and get some help he’ll then have the playoffs to prepare for.
According to the report, if Munchak turns Penn State down the school’s second choice would be Packers quarterbacks coach Tom Clements.
