Mike Munchak to Interview With Penn State Sunday

With rumors and names flying all over the internet as to the Penn State coaching search, more news emerged Sunday morning. According to ESPN NFL Insider Chris Mortensen, former Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Munchak will meet with Penn State officials on Sunday. Mortensen shared the news via Twitter.

News broke on Saturday that Munchak was fired by the Titans. However, according to Mortensen, he turned down a raise and an extension from the NFL club, refusing to make the changes that management want to his staff.

Munchak may have high interest in returning to coach his alama mater. He was an All-American offensive lineman while playing for the Nittany Lions from 1979-1981. He’s also a Pennsylvania native, having been born in Scranton.

The former Tennessee head coach has been a coach in the NFL since 1994, all with the Houston Oilers / Tennessee Titans, the same team he was an All-Pro for from 1982-1993.

Munchak’s interview follows that of fellow Penn State alum Al Golden who met with Penn State on Saturday. Several reports throughout the day had Golden already being hired by the Nittany Lions.

Current Vanderbilt head coach James Franklin is reportedly also scheduled to interview at Penn State on Sunday.
