Earlier this week it was announced that the Titans declined to pick up Chance Warmack's 5th year option. That had to be a tough blow to the 4th year guard. Well Warmack talked to Pete Prisco as a part of an offensive line round table earlier this week and wasn't shy when talking about former Titans' offensive line coach Bob Bostad:
I had one dude (coach) who played D-III football at linebacker. And he's teaching me how to play offensive line? If there's nothing wrong with that, you tell me. I play offensive line. I don't play linebacker. I definitely didn't play D-III football. Not knocking D-III schools out there. We're talking about the highest level of football in the world. And you have a guy who has never put his hand in the dirt teaching me how to block. You don't think there's anything wrong with that? I appreciate a coach who is open-minded to questions and comments. They don't want to hear a question that questions their philosophy. When they are closed-minded, it stunts the growth of the offensive lineman.
Warmack is a guy that doesn't usually say much, and who knows if he would have said this two weeks ago before the news of his option being declined. It is safe to say, however, that Bostad's work as the offensive line coach here left a lot to be desired.
But at the end of the day, Warmack has one year to prove that he is the player the Titans thought they were getting when they spent the 10th pick in the draft on him.
