This is what happens when you're forced to replace a coach during a disastrous scandal while replacing an athletic director, it seems. The Penn St. Nittany Lions coaching search continues, with Stanford Cardinal coach David Shaw the latest reported interested party. Scratch that name, says Jon Wilner, who provides an alibi for all of the dates on which Shaw is supposed to be in Happy Valley.
Larry Hicks of the York Dispatch provides a good summary of the coaches who've declined, whether they were asked or not (Boise St. Broncos coach Chris Petersen (of course), Harvard coach Tim Murphy, Tony Dungy, Titans coach Mike Munchak), and those who've expressed interest (Tom Bradley and Jay Paterno, Packers assistants Tom Clements and Darren Perry) ... and Mississippi St. Bulldogs coach Dan Mullen, who says he's not interested but sure does seem interested.
Let's also be sure not to include Shaw in the latter list.
