January 7, 2011 by staff 

Tom Bradley, Defensive coordinator Tom Bradley on Wednesday confirmed he had interviewed for the position of head coach after Temple athletic director Bill Bradshaw called it. Bradley said he refused the offer Joe Paterno put in a good word. “I do not want to be a distraction,” he said. “We had to prepare for Florida.” Penn State has received verbal commitment from the ninth grade in 2011, when 6-foot-4, 254 pounds, defensive lineman Anthony Zettel said he plans to enroll next year.

Zettel, who played at Ogemaw Heights (Mich.) High School chose Penn State, Michigan, Michigan State and Iowa. Penn State corner D’Anton Lynn, whose father, Anthony, is the coach of the New York Jets running backs, attended his first Jets game this season and has looked closely at the unpleasantness of the NFL. He was on the bench when former Jets strength and conditioning coach Sal Alosa fired Miami Dolphins Nolan Carroll, as he tried to cover a punt. “I was like 5 feet behind the guy when it happened,” said Lynn. “I saw it happen, I was like, ‘Wow, I can not believe he has done that.” ”

In terms of injuries, the rookie linebacker Khairi Fortt has a neck problem and his status for the Outback Bowl is uncertain, “said Bradley. Meanwhile, defensive end Jack Crawford is healthy after missing three games with a foot injury, but defensive end Eric Latimore (wrist) will not play. Cornerback Stephon Morris and Chaz Powell are competing for a starting spot, and a decision can only come after practice today, said Bradley. Morris started the first seven games, Powell last five. The Nittany Lions, who have been in Florida since December 18, hold their final full practice today. It will be the 17th since the end of the regular season Nov. 27.
