Titans coaching jobs: Who is next?

Pat Lovell-USA TODAY Sports

Dream position coaches for every open position.

The Titans just made the splashy hire of bringing in the talented offensive mind of Mike Mularkey to be either the TE or QB coach in Tennessee. If the Titans can pull of that hire, then what other big names could they pull in? Here are my dream candidates for each job.

OL Coach: Russ Grimm

Grimm is the type of guy you would love to coach your OL. Grimm did a great job during his stint in Pittsburgh from 2001-2006, and then in Arizona from 2007-2012...OK well maybe not the last two years for the Cardinals, but the Arizona offensive line had no talent. Grimm could do wonders with the talented and under-preforming line of the Titans.

DL Coach: Wade Phillips

I find it appalling that Phillips has not had one DC interview this entire offseason. Look at this stat from the man himself:


That is astounding to me. Phillips is a talented coach that has created players like Antonio Smith and turned good players into stars like Demarcus Ware and J.J. Watt. Having that man coach Casey, RoPo, Morgan, Mike Martin, and the others could be a huge benefit and he fits the system we want to run under new DC Ray Horton: a multiple, attacking 3-4.

TE coach: Mike Pope

Pope was the TE coach of the New York Giants for 21 years, and was a part of four Super Bowl teams. He is by far the most experiences man for the job, and he has worked with both "types" of TE. For example, Jeremy Shockey was a vertical TE that always begged to be more involved in the passing game, while players like Jake Ballard and Henry Hynoski were gritty run blockers.

Adding a coach with four SB rings, and a wealth of experience seems exactly like something this new Titans team would love to do.

DB coach: Travaris Robinson

Robinson is the biggest wildcard on this list. As a DB coach at Florida, he has groomed the likes of Loucheiz Purifoy, Matt Elam, Marvus Roberson, Vernon Hargraves III, and several others. The one thing he doesn't have is NFL experience outside of playing in the NFL for three years. If the Titans are looking for someone with pure talent this is the guy, but if they are looking for a sure-thing with NFL experience they will likely pass on Robinson.
