Titans expected to interview Mike Zimmer, Jim Caldwell

The Tennessee Titans are looking for a new head coach after their decision to part ways with Mike Munchak, and they are lining up a number of potential candidates for their new coaching search. The Titans have already asked for permission to interview Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden, but they have added two new names to the list including one of Gruden’s colleagues.

According to Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean, Bengals defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer is one of the new names on the Titans’ wish list.

Zimmer has been a hot name in coaching searches over the past few years, and he believes that the past experiences have allowed him to improve in the interview process.

“I believe I’ve gotten better at it,” Zimmer said, via Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer. “The first one I did was a long time ago with the Rams. I didn’t do a very good job. It’s like coaching, I guess, I think you know when you do good and when you don’t when you walk out. I was told that I did good in the other ones, so we’ll see. They may not be looking for me and whatever. They may want an offensive coach, or they may want a different style guy, who knows?”

Along with Zimmer and Gruden, the Titans are expected to also interview Baltimore Ravens offensive coordinator Jim Caldwell, who has drawn interest from the Redskins and Lions.
