Penn State Coaching Search: Packers QB Coach Tom Clements Reportedly Applies

The Penn State Nittany Lions are currently considering internal candidates for their vacant head coach position, but at least one outsider is throwing his name into the potential hiring pool. Tom Clements, a native of Western Pennsylvania and the current quarterbacks coach for the Green Bay Packers, has reportedly applied for the position. The selection committee for the job has already interviewed Jay Paterno and will be interviewing interim head coach Tom Bradley for the position.

Clements has been at his current position since 2006 and has been the Packers' quarterbacks coach for the vast majority of the career of Aaron Rodgers. He began his career as the Notre Dame Fighting Irish quarterbacks coach in 1992 and has coached in the NFL since 1997. Clements had a brief playing career in the NFL and a lengthy career in the CFL, retiring in 1987.
