The Titans have hired offensive line coach Mike Munchak to be the team's new head coach, replacing Jeff Fisher.

"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."  

Munchak played for the Houston Oilers for 12 seasons and became the team's offensive line coach in 1997. In 2001, he became the franchise's fifth player to be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

The Titans and Fisher parted ways after 17 seasons with the club. Gregg Williams, Mike Heimerdinger and Perry Fewell also interviewed for the position.

The way we see it

The presumed favorite for the job, Munchak takes over a team that faded badly in the second half of the 2010 season and is looking for a new starting quarterback with Vince Young to be traded or released. Thirteen Titans assistant coaches are reportedly under contract for 2011, but as with every head-coaching change, coaching-staff changes are possible.
