The Tennessee Titans are interviewing Atlanta Falcons quarterbacks coach Charles London for their vacant offensive coordinator opening, according to a report from CBS Sports’ Jonathan Jones.

London is the third offensive coordinator candidate to emerge. The Titans previously requested permission to interview Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy and senior assistant/quarterbacks coach Matt Nagy. There’s been no word regarding the Chiefs’ plans to approve or decline those requests.

There’s a ton of familiarity between London, head coach Mike Vrabel, and the Titans organization in general. London previously worked for the Titans in 2011 as an offensive assistant. More notably, he served as the Houston Texans’ running back coach for all four of Vrabel’s seasons (2014-17) in Houston. London currently serves as the quarterbacks coach for former Titans offensive coordinator Arthur Smith in Atlanta. London is connected to Vrabel and the Titans in a multitude of ways.

London played running back at Duke. London has spent the majority of his coaching career as a running backs position coach before coaching quarterbacks in Atlanta. London has never been an offensive coordinator. He’s well-versed in multiple schemes and systems after working for offensive coordinators such as Chris Palmer (in Tennessee), Bill O’Brien and Arthur Smith.
