TENNESSEE TITANS’ COACH CLAIMS HE IS NOT HEADING TO PENN STATE AS COACH
Wed, 28 Dec 2011 08:43 AM EST

The Titans coach announces Wed. he’s flattered to be discussed for his alma mater, but insists he loves what he is doing in Tennessee.

“You all know PSU means a lot to me. I obviously went to college there and I’m real concerned for what they have gone thru the last couple of months. I’m flattered that people think I’d be a great fit for the coach there,” Munchak recounted Wed. after practice.

“They have not made contact with me in any fashion or chatted with me about the likelihood of working there. I have not reached out to them. I have got a job that I enjoy quite a bit.”

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette had reported Tuesday that Munchak has been singled out by a PSU search panel as the inheritor to fired Hall of Famer Joe Paterno.

According to the newspaper’s unnamed sources, Munchak and Green Bay Packers quarterbacks coach Tom Clements are the leading applicants to replace Paterno, but Munchak is the panel’s leading choice. Betting lines

This is the third time since Paterno was fired that Munchak has denied interest in the job. He denied it the day after Paterno was fired and again Dec. 2 when his name came up in association with the opening. He was linked again Wednesday to the job and did his best to squash the idea he would leave the franchise he has worked for as either a player or coach since 1982.

The only help Munchak is ready and willing to give is advising his alma mater in the search process. Sports scores

“I’m sure they’re going to find themselves a great coach and if I can help them in any fashion to do that, obviously I might do that,” Munchak expounded. “I’d like to stay involved with Penn State some way, but I am extraordinarily concerned with the Titans and I love what I’m doing.”

The first-year NFL boss coach is busy trying hard to get his 8-7 Titans into the playoffs, which would be the team’s first postseason berth since 2008 and 3rd since the 2003 season. The Titans need a victory in Houston on Sunday and then help from at least 2 other games to make the postseason as the AFC’s last lucky card.

“That’s what I’m truly pondering and excited about,” Munchak expounded. “It’s unfortunate that it came up this week because I don’t need the focus taken away from what we’re trying to do as a team here.”

Munchak asserted he considered the “what-ifs” of the Penn State situation when the job came open. He never went any further with that possibility.

“You always think of the what-if, what would that be like, going to college ( coaching ) or moving back to Pennsylvania, and I believe that’s when we realized how much we loathe the winters and how hard that will be moving back with the snow, and how we do like Nashville a bit more,” Munchak said.

“You give it some thought and how it’d be fun to take part in something. I feel a bit like I grew up there, but that’s kind of where it stops. I’m pleased with what I’m doing and the chance I’ve been given here has been awesome.”

His managing director is Mike Reinfeldt, a former colleague with the Houston Oilers. His defensive coordinator, Jerry Gray, is another previous teammate.

Munchak’s Titans were glad to hear him reply so swiftly to this latest rumour.

“Honestly, my heart was sort of beating this A. M. when I saw that go across the ticker on the bottom of the screen, because you don’t know what is going on,” receiver Nate Washington claimed. “But he’s not a bloke that gets mixed up in that sort of thing. He’s very happy where he is at, and I’m very proud of coach Munchak and quite happy with the leadership he has given us throughout the year.”
