The Titans have already given hints of what their offensive philosophy will be in 2011 by hiring Hall of Fame offensive linemen Mike Munchak as head coach and Bruce Matthews as an offensive assistant. News of their offensive coordinator search reiterates their approach to being a team that wins because of its line play.

Days after Tennessee was denied permission to talk to Jets offensive line coach Bill Callahan for its coordinator job, the Titans have asked to interview Bears OL coach Mike Tice, according to the Chicago Tribune. The team would likely also offer Tice the role of assistant head coach.

According to the newspaper, Tice has one year remaining on his current contract, so the Bears do not have to grant permission for the coach to interview for the job. Many teams do allow their assistants to interview if the new job is a promotion, which this transition would be, though the Jets went against that line of thinking.

Tice, the head coach of the Vikings from 2001-05, helped the Bears' offensive line improve in 2010 throughout the course of the season.

The way we see it

Tice proved a year ago that he is one of the league's top offensive line coaches and would be a great addition to Munchak's staff in Tennessee. It is also interesting to note that Bears C Olin Kreutz is a free agent and could potentially follow his coach to the Titans if Tice is hired.
