Mike Munchak, a former Penn State All-America offensive lineman, said yesterday he is not interested in become the Nittany Lions' next head coach.

Munchak is in his first year as head coach of the Tennessee Titans.

"I have a great deal of respect for Penn State and I hope they find a great coach there, but I am happy where I'm at," Munchak told The Tennessean newspaper of Nashville. "I love my alma mater, but I have no interest in being the head coach at Penn State. I never want to leave Tennessee."

Munchak, 51, is a native of Scranton and a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He is believed to be high on Penn State's wish list to replace Joe Paterno.

Paterno was fired Nov. 9, as part of the child sex abuse scandal involving former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky.

No McGloin? Interim coach Tom Bradley said that quarterback Matt McGloin did not practice yesterday. That could mean Rob Bolden may start for the Nittany Lions against Houston in the TicketCity Bowl in Dallas on Monday. McGloin is suffering from concussion-like symptoms and had a possible seizure as a result of a fight with wide receiver Curtis Drake on Dec. 17. Drake, a West Catholic High graduate, did not travel with the team and will not play in the bowl game. McGloin started all three games since Bradley took over as interim coach, As part of the bowl experience, the Lions visited Cowboys Stadium in suburban Arlington yesterday.
