Report: Munchak leading candidate for Titans job

The biggest difficulty for the Titans right now -- outside of moving the "Ringling Brothers" sign to the rear of the facility -- is replacing the now-departed Jeff Fisher.

It appears that offensive line coach (and one of the few guys left on Fisher's staff before he departed) Mike Munchak is the leading candidate at the moment.

That's according to Terry McCormick of Titans Insider, who cites sources indicating the Titans like Munchak but will also interview a number of other candidates "including an applican to satisfy the Rooney Rule for minorities."

While there are only 32 head coaching jobs in the NFL, that doesn't mean filling one of them this late in the "coaching season" and this close to a potential lockout is a difficult task.

Perry Fewell is a name still sitting out there as a strong candidate (Josh mentioned him yesterday), but given his earlier concerns about being a token Rooney Ruler, he might not be interested in interviewing.

Gregg Williams is considered a strong possibility, but there are two tremendous concerns. First, he might not be able to bring his son (Bud Adams isn't a big nepotism fan, apparently) along with him. And secondly, he might decline to interview out of respect for Fisher.

Munchak, a 2001 Hall of Fame inductee, doesn't have any head coaching experience, but he's apparently well-liked by the team, having coached under Fisher since 1995.

"I think he’s a person, given his playing career and his coaching career, he’s certainly a person that you’d have to consider," said GM Mike Reinfeldt. "Again, we’re kind of in the early stages of this, so it would be kind of premature to answer that question at this point in time."

On the other hand, Reinfeldt stressed "head coaching experience" as a "good thing," so that's not great news. But he did play on the Oilers with Munchak, so he'd theoretically know as well as anyone whether or not the guy can handle the job.

Candidates

I'll offer up three candidates for the head coaching position...

1) Kevin Gilbride... he was the Houston Oilers' OC when they ran the run and shoot... he's currently the OC of the Giants. He was the head coach of the Chargers briefly... but Ryan Leaf put an end to that.

2) Marty Mornigweg... He oversaw the most exciting offence in football this year and he turned Vick into an MVP candidate. He was Head Coach in Detroit for a while... but was undone by an overtime coin toss decision. The result was bad, but the decsion shows the ability to be creative and brave. (it was OT and he chose to kick off rather than recieve)

3) Rob Ryan - Yes I know he just took the Dallas DC job a week ago... but he probably hasn't bought a house yet.

Report: Munchak leading candidate for Titans job

going to church tomorrow for the sole reason to thank the big man upstairs that I sold my psl's and season tickets prior to the start of this season for the exact same value I paid. Just a little advice....... in 10-15 years when the titans want to build a new stadium, your psl's will be worthless. That was the reason I started to look to get out of that situation........... tickets aren't hard to get at face value either. I went to the steelers and patriots games and sat in club level at face value with no problems.
