Ken Whisenhunt has made his first big hire. He named Jason Michael the offensive coordinator. Michael worked with Whisenhunt last season with the Chargers. Here is what Whisenhunt had to say about the Michael (per the team's official release):

"Jason really impresses me with his knowledge of the run and pass game and he was a big part of putting together our plans last year in San Diego," said Titans head coach Ken Whisenhunt. "He is very familiar with the offensive system that we want to implement here, which includes bits and pieces from a number of offensive systems. He is intelligent and a good communicator. He was responsible for presenting a couple of game-plan packages to our offense each week and he was impressive."

Here is what Michael had to say about joining Whisenhunt's staff:

"This is a great situation," said Michael. "The opportunity to work with Whiz and follow him there to Tennessee is exciting both professionally and personally. In the one year working with Whiz, I learned a great deal and we worked really well together. His ability to create an offense that is built around the strengths of the players led to success for us in San Diego and it will be fun to come there and create an offense that is built around a new group of players. Nine years ago, this would have been the job I dreamed about – with my wife from Knoxville and going to school in Bowling Green (Kentucky) - an opportunity to come home to be the offensive coordinator for the Titans."

Michael was a graduate assistant at the University of Tennessee from 2003-2004. He has also worked for the Oakland Raiders and New York Jets.
