Big Ten lunchtime links: JayPa in mix at Toledo?

Posted by ESPN.com's Adam Rittenberg

Bowl practices will resume later this week at several schools, and the selections are only four days away. Here's what's happening around the league.

  • Penn State head coach Joe Paterno returned to work barely a week after undergoing hip-replacement surgery, but his son Jay could be in the mix for the Toledo head-coaching vacancy, Bernard Fernandez writes in the Philadelphia Daily News.

"Several Web sites reported that Jay Paterno, a 1990 Penn State graduate who has been on his father's staff for 14 years, could be in line to be interviewed by Toledo athletic director Mike O'Brien. Jay Paterno did not return telephone calls from the Daily News, and Toledo officials would neither confirm nor deny that the school had been in contact with him."
