Penn State Coaching Search: Packers Assistants Vying For Job

Packers QB coach Tom Clements has reportedly submitted his resume for consideration in the Penn State head football coach search. Clements has been Aaron Rodgers’ QB coach since 2006 and is a native of Western Pennsylvania. He also coached on Bill Cowher’s staff with the Steelers as a QB from 2001-2003.

He is the second member of the Packers’ staff to express interest in the Nittany Lions job. Former Penn State great and Green Bay assistant Darren Perry said through his agent he would be flattered if his alma mater were interested.

“If approached by Penn State, this really would be the only college job that he would take a hard look at and really listen to,” said Perry’s agent, Chris Turnage.

The Pittsburgh Tribune Review also reports that interim coach Tom Bradley will be interviewed this week and Jay Paterno was interviewed last Friday.

That said, most insiders say that Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen is still the top target of the search committee. A reporter even said that Mullen was set to be interviewed yesterday. So far, Mullen has denied the reports.
