The Tennessee Titans are expected to look a lot different in 2014. On Monday, reports surfaced that the team would not pick up the option of quarterback Jake Locker and that running back Chris Johnson is expected to be released, but that doesn’t even address the head coaching situation.
Titans head coach Mike Munchak is undoubtedly on the hot seat, but he doesn’t seem too concerned about his job security and he is just trying to finish out the season strong.
“We have three games to go. We have a lot of football to play, so that is not a concern right now,” Munchak said, via Jim wyatt of the Tennesseean. “Once we play our last game, we’ll have an opportunity to speak on how we go forward as a football team like I did last year and the year before that. I’ve had the same discussion when the season ends and I’m assuming I’ll have that same discussion when the season ends.
“I’ll have a chance to talk to everybody then and say ‘Here’s what happened. Here’s how we go forward. Here’s the plan.’ And then a decision is made and we’ll move forward.”
It wouldn’t be a surprise to anyone if Munchak is let go after the season, however, he has one season remaining on his contract so nothing is set in stone.
That said, if you are planning on entering next year without two of your key starters on offense, it is most likely that you will want a new coach to pick his own quarterback and skill players that will fit his philosophy.
