Titans coach Mike Munchak and Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano could soon be switching places with Penn State head coach Bill O'Brien. The two pro coaches are reportedly interested in being head coach of Penn State's football team if O’Brien decides to leave the team for a job in the NFL.

According to a report from David Jones of the Patriot-News, "knowledgeable PSU sources" have told him that individuals representing Munchak and Schiano have "discreetly" inquired with Penn State officials to get a better sense of any possible changes to the Nittany Lions' staff. The university is reportedly not actively seeking candidates to replace O'Brien, who is the target of several NFL teams. A third name mentioned as a possible replacement for O'Brien, should he leave for the NFL, is Vanderbilt coach James Franklin.

The 53-year-old Munchak, a Penn State graduate, was on the verge of getting the job two years ago after the Jerry Sandusky scandal, and is reportedly the favorite this time around if Penn State needs a new coach. Schiano was a one-time assistant coach for Penn State but is "not thought to be high on the would-be PSU contingency list," according to the report.
