Mike Munchak A Candidate To Replace Jeff Fisher As Titans Head Coach, According To Report

For the first time … ever, the Tennessee Titans are in need of a new head coach, as Jeff Fisher, who started coaching the franchise back when it was called the Houston Oilers, is gone. Those are big and well-moustachio’d shoes to fill, and the team may be looking to promote from within.

The Tennesseean’s Jeff Wyatt reports Mike Munchak, Titans offensive line coach, could become the second-ever Titans head coach, based on “early indications,” of course.

Munchak was a Pro Football Hall of Fame offensive lineman who played his entire 12-year career for the Houston Oilers, and has been a Titans coach since 1997. He even worked in the front office for a few years before coming on as a head coach. So he’s one of the only coaches or players in football whose time with the franchise actually dwarfs Fisher’s, as amazing as that is.

Seriously, he’s been an Oiler-Titan for almost three decades now.

Eddie George and Chris Johnson are the running backs who’ve found the most success behind Munchak’s lines, with Steve McNair, Vince Young, and Kerry Collins the most noteworthy quarterbacks to pass from Munchak-crafted pockets.
