DALLAS -- San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman, a finalist for the Penn State coaching job, told radio station 97.3 ESPN radio in New Jersey that he interviewed for the Nittany Lions' vacancy a month ago.
"I've spoken with Penn State, had some discussions with them about a month ago and found everybody involved on their end to be extremely intelligent, extremely focused on finding the best person they could under the unique circumstances there at Penn State," Roman said.
A native of Ventnor, N.J., Roman said the Penn State job is one he covets.
"A job like Penn State is a lifetime job. That's a job if I were to become the head coach there, I wouldn't leave there. I'd be back East, setting up camp, I'd be at the [Jersey] Shore in the summer. And that would be my routine."
