08:21 AM ET 06.01 | Mike Hopkins' name is again a trending topic. Isn't that always the case? Think Charlotte. Or Providence. This time Hopkins' name has surfaced in two separate newspaper stories on Penn State's search for a replacement for Ed DeChellis. First, the Harrisburg Patriot-News threw Hopkins' name out there and then the Centre Daily Times mentioned Hopkins in a very off-handed manner in a story that appeared on its website Tuesday. Reached Tuesday by phone, Hopkins said he was not involved in the Penn State search and had not been contacted by Penn State officials.
