Former Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Munchak and Vanderbilt head coach James Franklin are expected to receive interviews Sunday from Penn State, according to reports.
ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reported Sunday that Munchak, a former Penn State offensive lineman, would receive an interview.
Munchak was fired Saturday after he reportedly turned down a contract extension because he refused to fire any assistant coaches following the Titans’ 7-9 season.
Franklin also was scheduled to receive an interview from Penn State, according to Pete Roussel of coachingsearch.com.
ESPN reported that Franklin interviewed with the Houston Texans two weeks ago before Bill O’Brien accepted the job and that he received interview requests from the Cleveland Browns and the Washington Redskins.
Miami (Fla.) head coach Al Golden reportedly was interviewed Saturday by Penn State. Golden, Munchak and Franklin appear to be the leading candidates.
