Mike Mularkey has decided to make at least a couple of moves on his staff. Today he announced that the team has “parted ways” with receivers coach Bob Bratkowski and assistant receivers coach Jason Tucker.

This is a bit of a surprise, considering the steps that Rishard Matthews and Tajae Sharpe took forward. I think most would agree that the Titans had a personnel issue at receiver instead of a coaching issue.
None of that matters now. The receivers were once again a weak point on the roster so Mularkey decided to make a change. Mularkey said that the process begins now to find a replacement.
Whoever the new coach is, he should have some new blood to work with. The Titans are expected to bring in a couple of new faces at receiver this season. Mularkey has already mentioned the position as a need.
It’s clear that he values the position and is going to make sure he gets it right for 2017.
