Breaking News out of Nashville, the Tennessee Titans have fired Mike Munchak as their head coach. Munchak coached for three years and finished his career with the Titans with a record of 22-26, his best season was his first when the Titans finished 9-7.
-Update: It has been reported Mike Munchak was let go when he refused to let go of certain staff members based on the team’s management. League sources report that Munchak had been offered a long term contract as long as he let go of a number of his coaching staff. For that loyalty, I applaud Munchak.
Munchak played at Penn State as an offensive lineman until 1982 when he was drafted by the Houston Oilers in the first round. Selected to the Pro Bowl nine times, Munchak’s career lasted for 12 years.
After enjoying a year of retirement, coach Jeff Fisher hired Mike Munchak as an offensive assistant/quality control coach. In 1997, when the Oilers moved from Houston to Nashville, Munchak was promoted to Offensive Line Coach. When Jeff Fisher parted ways with Tennessee after the 2010 season, Mike Munchak was hired to coach the Titans.
