49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman a candidate at Penn State

Add the name of 49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman to the list of candidates to be the next head coach at Penn State.

Roman already interviewed for the Penn State vacancy this week, Bruce Feldman of CBS reports.

Although Roman has never been a head coach at any level, he’s had success as an offensive coordinator both with the 49ers and before that at Stanford. He worked for Jim Harbaugh in both jobs.

The Penn State job became open when Bill O’Brien left to take the head-coaching job with the Texans.

  1. Well Munchak doesn’t sound that appealing on account of the wishy-washy statements that he made in talking about this job. I hope Roman is a little more discreet in the early investigation phases, or straightforward and clear if he does talk about it.

  2. That “school girl” Harbaugh, is on the verge of going to his 3rd Conference championship in his first 3 years. What do you do for a living?

  3. I don’t know if anyone is dumb enough to take him.
    C’mon 1st & goal @ the 7 (SB) , with Frank Gore & he calls 4 passplays?? Even i know the Refs aren’t going to call PI

  4. It seems like every time an offensive coordinator is mentioned for a head coaching job, his own fanbase screams “Please, take him!”

    He gets a lot of flak for his play calling in the SB at the end…rightfully so. But that doesn’t mean he hasn’t done a great job overall. It also doesn’t mean the refs called it correctly at the end, because they didn’t.

  6. As a Niner Fan, I hope he takes the PSU job(or any other for that matter).

    I’ll give him credit for some very creative offense at times last year, but his propensity to abandon the run (or whatever is producing results) during a game is maddening, and the fact that he seems to despise the screen pass is frustrating.

    I will say that some of his run blocking schemes and creativity in the run game is flat out ingenius, but he lacks passing game imagination and creativity in an ever increasingly passing league.

    I’m not trying to hate on the man, but I will not be crushed by his departure either.
