Former Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Munchak was scheduled to interview for the Penn State job on Sunday, according to ESPN.com.
Munchak was fired by the Titans on Saturday, reportedly because he would not agree to make more than a dozen coaching staff changes.
According to the report, the team offered Munchak a multiyear contract extension that would have nearly doubled his $3 million salary if he agreed to the staff firings and demotions.
Munchak, 53, spent more than 30 years with the franchise, going back to when he was drafted in 1982 when the team was known as the Houston Oilers. The offensive guard played 12 seasons for the Oilers and was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2001. Before becoming head coach of the Titans, he served as offensive line coach for the franchise from 1997-2010.
He guided the Titans to a 22-26 record in three years, including 7-9 in 2013.
Munchak starred for Penn State from 1978-81. If Penn State decides not to hire Munchak, he reportedly has NFL offers as an offensive line coach.
Miami's Al Golden and Vanderbilt's James Franklin are also candidates for the Penn State head coaching job.
