The Titans released a statement tonight confirming that they have hired Jon Robinson as general manager:
We are thrilled that Jon has agreed in principle to become our general manager," said Titans Controlling Owner and Co-Chairman of the Board of Directors Amy Adams Strunk. "As we visited with Jon and researched his career, his proven track record for scouting talent, leadership skills, and ability to build relationships make him an ideal candidate to lead our football operation. Jon is a proud Tennessean who is excited to be coming home, and we look forward to the future of our football team under his leadership.
Here is what Robinson had to say about the opportunity:
I am extremely grateful to Amy for this opportunity, and I am very excited for the chance to come home to Tennessee," said Robinson. "I had a high comfort level with Amy, Kenneth (Adams IV), Steve (Underwood), and Vin (Marino) throughout the entire process, and I am ready to roll up my sleeves and go to work
Now, Jon, your first order of business is to make sure that the ownership group doesn't hire Mike Mularkey as the head coach.
