Tennessee Titans coaching search update

An updated look at who might be on the Titans staff next year.


Dan Quinn is reportedly being seriously considered for the Titans head coaching job, and if he ends up in Tennessee he may bring someone with him.

For those that don't know, Quinn is currently the defensive coordinator for the Seattle Seahawks, and has been a constant riser throughout his career. Quinn was an integral part in forming dominant defenses for the Jets (DL coach 07-08), Seahawks (DL coach 09-10/DC in 13), and for the Florida Gators (11-12). His defensive lines have been very impressive, and you have to imagine with talented players like Derrick Morgan and Jurrell Casey he could do something special in Tennessee.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Per <a href="">@mortreport</a>, Quinn looks like top candidate for <a href="">@Titans</a>, could have Mularkey as OC. Per me, Mularkey was way uptight as <a href=";src=hash">#Jaguars</a> coach.</p>&mdash; Paul Kuharsky (@PaulKuharskyNFL) <a href="">January 5, 2014</a></blockquote>

As per that tweet, it seems like he would bring Mike Mularkey with him. Despite the disappointing stint as a head coach in Jacksonville (who has been able to win there though) Mularkey has serious chops in my opinion. It is easy to forget, but his offense led the Atlanta Falcons to a 13-3 season with a lot of the same talent that only got them four wins this year.

Mularkey was named offensive coordinator of the year by Sporting News in 2010, and he did all of this without the stellar Julio Jones. If Mularkey could come in and replicate anything similar to what he did his 2010 year, then he would be a great hire especially if Dan Quinn could add someone like Kris Richard (Seattle DB coach) as the defensive coordinator.
