Micah Shrewsberry asked about reports linking him to Georgetown, Notre Dame coaching jobs
Micah Shrewsberry has Penn State on an incredible Big Ten Tournament run. The No. 10-seed Nittany Lions have taken down No. 7-seed Illinois, No. 2-seed Northwestern and No. 3-seed Indiana to set up a championship showdown with No. 1-seed Purdue. With PSU now 22-12 and a lock to make the NCAA Tournament, some wonder if Shrewsberry is entering his final stretch of games for the Nittany Lions.

Before tipoff Saturday, college basketball insider Jeff Goodman of Stadium reported that Shrewsberry is a leading candidate for the Georgetown head coaching job. After PSU’s win over Indiana, Shrewsberry was asked if he or his representation had contact with Georgetown or Notre Dame, and if he had any comments on reports linking him to those jobs.
“You know me. I’m like basketball season is going on, I am completely tunnel vision on our team and State High basketball,” Shrewsberry said after Saturday’s game. “I missed my kid’s game today. They won by 40. Shout out State High. Moving on, Little Lions. Moving on to the state tournament.
“That’s what I’m focused on. I’m happy to be here. Nobody wanted me a few years ago. I’m happy to be here. I love our guys. We’re going to prepare to play for a championship tomorrow.”
Shrewsberry’s answer won’t do anything to quiet the rumor mill. We’ll see how the situation plays out.
