Mike Munchak To Be Named Tennessee Titans Head Coach At Press Conference

The Tennessee Titans have their new coach. The team announced via press release Mike Munchak is the new coach following Jeff Fisher, who left the organization last week. Owner Bud Adams said in the announcement:

"This is a special day for this franchise as one of our former players takes over the team as the head coach," said Titans Owner K.S. "Bud" Adams, Jr. "Mike has been successful at everything he has been associated with at our franchise and I have no reason to believe that he won't be successful as our head coach. He earned Hall of Fame distinction as a player and yearly he has been one of the best offensive line coaches in the NFL. He understands where we have been and knows where we need to go."     

This is the move many expected the Titans to make after they surprisingly parted ways with Fisher, who was the Titans head coach since 1994. Munchak has served as an assistant under Fisher for the last 14 years. Munchak played for the Oilers for 11 years along side Bruce Matthews creating one of the best offensive line tandems in NFL history so Titans fans -- actually, Oilers fans -- remember his time with the team. 

The next step for Munchak -- find a quarterback. QB Vince Young will not be back with the team so Munchak and GM Mike Reinfeldt will be tasked with finding the next quarterback of the Titans.
