08:38 AM ET 12.29 | Nearly two months since the firing of Joe Paterno, Penn State is still looking for a successor. Former NFL head coach Eric Mangini is the latest name to surface in the search for a new football coach at Penn State to replace Joe Paterno. Fox 29 contributor Mike Missanelli from 97.5 The Phanatic said on Wednesday that Mangini, who coached the Jets and Browns, is the newest name to pop up in the long search for a Paterno successor. "I know they are very interested on [Mangini] the former NFL coach who has been fired twice in the NFL," says Missanelli, who has reported on Penn State for years. "He???s the latest flavor of the month. They will not be able to get a big name given to sustain what is going on."

That'd be a "duh" as the kids say.

PSU needs to hire Bradley and be done. It is a poisonous position to be in. Let Bradey hold down the fort until the smoke settles as far as football goes.

Might be a good choice. I mean, look at the awesome success Mangini had at Cleveland and New York . . . oh wait. . . nevermind.

Nobody credible would take that firestorm of a job. I'd rather coach anywhere else than walk into that.

Hunch is that you'd jump at the job given the salary the new coach will be making.
