Jim Wyatt answers a lot of questions about the future of the Titans franchise

Grant Halverson

The death of Bud Adams earlier this week raised a lot of questions around the franchise. Jim Wyatt wrote an article today that answers many of those questions.

While we still don't know exactly what is going to happen next, Jim Wyatt does a good job of breaking down what the ownership structure of the Titans looks like today.  Bud had three kids, two daughters and a son.  The son has passed away.  The two daughters now each own 33% of the franchise.  Bud's late son had 2 sons.  Those two grandsons own 11% and their mom owns 11% according to Wyatt.

Wyatt says that at some point a "controlling owner" will have to be appointed.  He (and many others) suggest that Susie Smith will be that person.  She is then expected to appoint her husband, Tommie, as something like a president of the team.  He will be the one calling the shots.

John McClain, who is very close to the Adams family in Houston, talked about Tommie on the Midday 180 earlier this week.  He didn't make him sound great, but maybe things will be different now that he will be calling the shots instead of working for Bud.

There has been some concern that the family will decide to sell the team.  As Wyatt says, that is impossible to predict, but what we do know is that the team has what has been called an ironclad lease at LP Field through 2028.  So even if they ultimately do decide to sell, the team is not going anywhere anytime soon.

It will be interesting to see how quickly these things are announced in the coming weeks.  Paul Kuharsky said the other day that he had heard and organizational structure should be released by mid-November.

In the meantime, hopefully this team will come out of the bye on fire and get right back in the thick of the playoff race.  They have the horses to get it done.

GO TITANS!!
