Former Pats LB Mike Vrabel hired as Titans coach

Titans Announce First Interviews For New Head Coach

The Tennessee Titans announced on Saturday evening that they have hired a head coach. From there, he took over as linebackers coach for Bill O'Brien and the Houston Texans, where he was promoted to defensive coordinator just this last season.

Vrabel, of course, was one of the mainstays of the earlier part of the Patriots dynasty as part of the first 3 Super Bowl championship teams. But the firing of Mularkey proves that the owner of the team thinks the time to compete is now so that the pressure will be on Vrabel nearly instantly.

"This is an incredible opportunity and one I have been preparing for my entire football life", Vrabel said.

George went on to say, "I'm happy for Mike Vrabel".

"We want to build a culture around winning, competitiveness and toughness", he continued. Or we'll look back and wonder what controlling owner Amy Adams Strunk and Robinson were thinking when they replaced a coach who went 19-15 in the past two seasons with a team that was 5-27 in 2014-15. The Titans will hold a formal press conference on Monday to introduce Vrabel. Wolf's belief is that Vrabel's playing career, which saw him play as both a linebacker and a tight end, will work in his favor in that regard. Texans quarterbacks coach Sean Ryan has interviewed for the Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator position, but moving to Tennessee with Vrabel is certainly a more appealing job.

Right now the position we're in, Conor's saying maybe I'll come back in August, maybe I'll come back in September. That is not fair to the rest of the guys in the division. "The division has to go on", White said.

While other teams have taken their time in finding a new head coach, the Titans did so quite swiftly. Fortunately, they have finally found their man. Fichtner, 54, last called plays while serving as offensive coordinator at Memphis from 2001-06.

This video filmed by the Texans during Vrabel's second year as linebackers coach and a tweet from one of his former players might give you an idea of who his players think he is. "He was the ultimate team-first player and he embodies that same mindset as a coach".

The Titans finished the 2017-18 regular season with a 9-7 record before edging the Kansas City Chiefs in the wild card round of the playoffs.

The NFL is a relationship business, for better or worse, but there's plenty of reason to trust Robinson's judgment in making this move.
