Titans coach Mike Munchak is the top pick of Penn State’s search committee to replace Joe Paterno as head coach according to Ron Musselman of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette who cites sources.
Green Bay Packers quarterbacks coach Tom Clements, appears to be the second choice in case Munchak opts to remain in the NFL.
Munchak, 51, is a former Nittany Lions offensive lineman and Pro Football Hall of Famer who has spent his entire professional career, as a player and coach, with the Titans/Houston Oilers franchise after leaving Penn State after the 1981 season.
Clements, 58, was interviewed twice in the past two weeks, first via conference call and then via Skype. He is a 1971 graduate of Bishop Canevin High School.
