According to a report by Jeff Rapp, PSU contacted Urban Meyer on September 25 while he was on campus interviewing Michael Mauti for a special segment.

Penn State and Joe Paterno go hand in hand, but it is definitely a time for change in State College. This is Paterno's final year under contract, but he has made no mention of stepping aside.

The interesting part of this situation is that no one wants to force JoePa out the door. Not Penn State, not Urban Meyer, and certainly not the Nittany Lion faithful.
