Tennessee's Mike Munchak and Tampa Bay's Greg Schiano have inquired about the Penn State job if coach Bill O'Brien leaves to take an NFL opening, the Patriot-News reported Tuesday.
However, Schiano has denied the report.
"There's zero truth to that," Schiano said. "Let me make it clear, the only job I want is the one I have right now."
Munchak has not responded to the report.
Both Munchak and Schiano have ties to Penn State.
Munchak, an All-America offensive lineman at Penn State from 1978-81, has spent his entire 32-year professional career as a player and coach with the Tennessee Titans/Houston Oilers organization, including the last three seasons as head coach. But with a 6-9 record this year, 21-26 overall record and no playoff appearances, there is speculation he could be fired after the season.
Schiano has also been on the hot seat with a 4-11 record this season with the Buccaneers.
Schiano is a former Joe Paterno assistant at Penn State, and during Schiano's tenure as the head coach at Rutgers he was frequently mentioned as a coach who could eventually succeed Paterno.
