After he was fired by the Tennessee Titans this past weekend, Mike Munchak became very much in play for the vacant head coaching position for the Penn State Nittany Lions, even more so than he was before.
One of the appealing traits that Munchak has for his resume is the fact that he’s a storied alum of the school, which means a lot to some of the folks in Happy Valley, having ties to the university.
But one thing he does not have on his resume is significant college coaching experience, but that was something that he was ready to address when he met with PSU officials on Sunday.
According to David Jones of PennLive.com, Munchak had a plan laid out for his potential future bosses as to how he would handle everything if he ultimately is the man they choose.
Munchak made a detailed presentation of exactly how he would go about recruiting, who he believed would be on his staff and how he would sell 2014-class recruits on remaining committed to the program and signing next month.
In case some don’t realize, coaching at the collegiate level is vastly different than the professional one and vice-versa. But kudos to Munchak in this instance for hitting this issue head on.
