08:19 AM ET 11.14 | Familiar names dot the landscape of speculated successors to Joe Paterno, from active coaches such as Kirk Ferentz and Pat Fitzgerald, to current broadcaster Urban Meyer. If Penn State wants to expand its search outside the college game and can't get a dream candidate like Tony Dungy, the school could do worse than look at Jim Caldwell. ... [Caldwell] was an assistant [at Penn State] before being named head coach at Wake Forest in 1993. At the time, he was the first African American coach in the ACC. In eight years at the smallest school in the conference, Caldwell had a record of 26-36. He installed a powerful passing offense out of necessity that set numerous school records. Like Dungy, he has an impeccable reputation.
