Penn State Coaching Search: Mike Munchak At The Top Of The List, According To Reports

Before the holiday weekend kicked into high gear, it was reported by David Jones of the Harrisburg Patriot-News that Boise State head coach Chris Petersen was not interested in the Penn State head coaching position. With Petersen apparently out of the picture, Jones tweeted on Monday that the focus of the hiring process was back on Mike Munchak.

Via David Jones of The Patriot-News:

Donor-types buzzing as if Munchak is done deal. Heard same thg 2 wks ago. Blv it when he's on a podium in S.C.

After playing at Penn State, Munchak was drafted by the Houston Oilers in 1982. He has stayed with the Oiler and Tennessee Titans organization ever since, immediately taking a coaching job upon his retirement as a player in 1993. He finally rose to head coach of the Titans in 2011 after Jeff Fisher's ouster last season. If reports are accurate, his tenure in the position could be short-lived.
