Penn State Coaching Search: Reported Top Target Mike Munchak Has 'No Interest' In Head Coaching Position

Earlier this week it was reported that Penn State had focused it's coaching search on Mike Munchak, an alum and the current head coach of the Tennessee Titans. Munchak has now made a statement about the position, and it appears as though Penn State will have to look elsewhere for a new coach.

It is not uncommon for a coach to say he has no interest in a job he will ultimately accept, especially when he still has work to do in his current position like Munchak does with the Titans. He still has one more game to coach there in the regular season. If they lose that game and the Titans miss the playoffs, it's possible that he may change his tune. But as of right now, he sounds pretty resolute.
