With a guy like Mathews and Munchack though, those two are probably going to be forever attached to the hip. Playing aside one another as long as they have and being as successful as they both were together, you can't break that bond. They're going to stand side by side as coaches until the other gets that big job offer he really needs that is a clear upgrade.
Yeah, Pete Carrol fired his OC, a good friend, mid-season. Sometimes you have to make tough choices. This isn't high school.
Having said that, it sounds like the titans were essentially taking away his power. Replacing that many assistants is a big deal. Better to part ways.
