Does that make 7 firings already?? Those other 6 teams have gotten a good week head start on the Titans in their coach search and the 2 best candidates are already off the board.
They might wait until the playoffs are over to interview some of those guys who aren't available just yet. Like a Whisenhut or anybody on Seattles staff.

Gary Kubiak anyone?
It's not that big a head start. I suspect the Titans will lean towards a Zimmer, Gase or Quinn.

Doubt they will dip into the college ranks...

I see Munchak joining Fisher in St Louis. Matthews probably goes with him.

I could see that as well. Good move for both and I would root for them. I think that Munchack was somewhat impressive as a HC considering the team he coached for and who they had.

Kudos to Munchak for telling Tommy Smith to shove it when told he had to fire Bruce Matthews et al to keep his job.

Well I don't know that I would give him kudos for that. I love Mathews myself, but that is the same thing many of us bashed Kubiak and Mack Brown for. Loyalty to their staff to a fault. I'm not saying this was the case as I wasn't informed enough about the situation, but I hate coaches that refuse to get rid of a weakness on their staff. 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.

True...but I wonder what Kubes would have done given the option "with conditions"?

Munchak was offered an extension at double his salary if he allowed Tommy Smith to micro-manage his staff. All Munch had to do was fire 12 guys. I promise you the Titans downfall wasn't on Matthews.

Sometimes you stand up for what's right. Just because some fan thinks you're wrong doesn't make it so. Munch decided he didn't want to wear a skirt in Nashville. Good for him, IMO. His integrity was not for sale.

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.

There's NFL interest in Munch. He did a credible job with messed up QB situation. Smart to get out of the mess that's Possum Holler.

As what an oline coach? Because if any gm is interested in him as a hc they should be fired immediately.

MMQB.SI: The Conscience -- More Than Wins and Losses

Quote:
In a world where coaching carousel news comes and goes as nothing more than mere fodder for the masses, Mike Munchak's firing was a stark reminder that the people on the sidelines are, you know, people too

Mike Munchakís name made the scrawl the other day, but somehow that didnít quite capture the whole story behind his departure from the Tennessee Titans organization after 31 years. The club dutifully thanked him for his many years of service, and to that Iíd like to add a simple thanks for the reminder.

The firings and hirings of coaches just keep coming in mind-numbing repetition at this time every year, scrawling along the bottom of our TV screens and re-making the composition of the headset crowd that will assume command of the sidelines later this year. But Munchakís exit from Tennessee after three seasons as the Titansí head coach was that rare instance when we get to pause and see people, not just moves, forcing us to realize those non-stop comings and goings are more than just transactions to be reported, digested and analyzed for impact.

Those all-important wins and losses that we live and die with every week in the NFL, the ones decided so often on a razorís edge, they really do affect a lot of lives, a lot of families and friends and some relationships that were years and years in the making. Munchak moving on from the Titans on the surface looked like the familiar tale of not enough wins and some contract terms to be paid off.

But the way he left Tennessee made it far more real than that to the rest of us, and we owe him one for that...
