The Harrisburg (Pa.) Patriot-News reported that Munchak -- a former Penn State offensive lineman -- would be a leading candidate should coach Bill O'Brien leave Penn State. Munchak is in his third season as Titans coach.
"I did not reach out to anybody, and nobody did on my behalf. And I don't have an agent," Munchak told The Tennesseean newspaper of Nashville. "... I don't know where [the media] comes up with that kind of stuff."
If O'Brien were to leave, chances are Penn State officials would have Munchak on their list of potential replacements. While he has not had great success with the Titans, he is a Penn State alum and he does have NFL experience. But being on a potential list of successors and actively seeking a job obviously are two different things.
