Mike Munchak Penn State's Top Coaching Candidate, According To Report

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette is reporting that first-year Tennessee Titans coach Mike Munchak is the top pick to become the next head coach of the Penn St. Nittany Lions, according to their sources.

The 51-year-old Munchak is a former PSU offensive lineman and Pro Football Hall of Famer. He has spent his entire professional career with the Titans/Houston Oilers franchise. He played for the team for 12 seasons and transitioned directly into a coach with the team.

Munchak and the Titans are currently in the playoff hunt and must win this weekend for a chance to make them.

According to the Post-Gazette, Green Bay Packers quarterbacks coach Tom Clements appears to be the second choice. Clements is a former Notre Dame quarterback and previously spent time as the Pittsburgh Steelers QB coach.
