Bo Pelini Denies Penn State Coaching Candidate Rumors

Now that Tennessee Titans coach Mike Munchak is off the Penn St. Nittany Lions list after twice denying interest, attention turns to a pretty short range of candidates. The biggest name left is Nebraska Cornhuskers coach Bo Pelini, who's changed jobs five times since 2000 and just lost brother and defensive coordinator Carl Pelini to FAU.

Pelini didn't exactly say he's a Nebraska lifer, but he did refute reports that he's looking around:

"Is that to say that I'd never go someplace else?" he said. "You never say never."

He paused.

"It's kind of a crazy deal that people say I'm out looking around," he said. "I'm not out looking around. I'm doing my job."

Unless Penn State is going to pull a stunning hire out of nowhere, Packers quarterbacks coach Tom Clements could be about as exciting as this is going to get. One more suggestion to consider, as recommended by Bruce Feldman, is Florida International coach Mario Cristobal.

Mike Munchak Turns Down Penn State Coaching Job

After it was reported that Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Munchak was the leading candidate for the Penn St. Nittany Lions head coaching position, Munchak flatly denied any interest in the position on Wednesday.

Speaking with Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean, Munchak officially turned down the "offer."

"I have a great deal of respect for Penn St and I hope they find a great coach there. But I am happy where I'm at. I love my alma mater, but I have no interest in being the head coach at Penn St. I never want to leave Tennessee."

Munchak is a Penn State alum but he has been a member of the Titans organization as a player or coach since 1982.

Munchak also said he's never talked to anyone at the school about the job officially.

According to the Post-Gazette, who reported Munchak was the lead candidate for the job, 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.

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.

2012 SEC Football Schedule Released: How Texas A&M, Missouri Shake Up Conference

The 2012 SEC football schedule is finally out, after a delay of almost a week or so, depending on who you listened to. Quite a bit has changed from the conference's traditional layout, thanks in large part to the incorporation of Big 12 imports Texas A&M and Missouri.

Go right here to take a look at the complete 2012 schedule, and it's included below.

With A&M joining the SEC West and Mizzou becoming the East's newest team, a few traditional matchups and dates have been altered, and there's sure to be discord in parts of the South.

As had been expected, for one, South Carolina and Georgia will no longer open their conference schedules against each other, but contrary to expectations Arkansas and Texas A&M will still share Cowboys Stadium in a neutral-site game.
