  • Titans hire Mike Vrabel as head coach

The Titans interviewed Rams offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur for their vacant head coaching position Friday, the team announced. Tennessee is looking to replace Mike Mularkey, who was sacked Monday after he went 21- 22 and won the franchise's first playoff game in 14 years.

Vrabel went to Houston in 2014 and coached linebackers with the Texans for three seasons before becoming coordinator. If it pays quick dividends, however, general manager Jon Robinson will look like a genius.

Mike Vrabel had a prolific and successful football career on the field, earning three Super Bowl rings as a linebacker and occasional end zone target for the Patriots.

It is the first head coaching opportunity for the 42-year old. He was the ultimate team-first player, and he embodies that same mindset as a coach. He knows what it takes to reach that level of sustained success - he has seen it firsthand. "We have a chance to build on the solid foundation that we established over the past couple of years and I believe Mike is the right person to continue that progress". Prior to that, Day coached at Boston College and Temple.

Some had said Josh McDaniels might consider this job, but with it off the board, it all but indicates he will be going to Indianapolis to be the next coach of the Colts.

"Leader of men", Robinson said of what he wants in a new head coach. By bringing in someone who will inherently understand so much about the culture Robinson wants to create, he can save himself a lot of work by not having to describe it to an outsider. "He'll be back being the defensive coordinator and still have the assistant head coach title".

Day is now the co-offenisve coordinator at Ohio State (Vrabel's alma mater and first coaching gig, though the two never coached together).

If the Tennessee Titans' evaluation process in hiring their next head coach is any indicator, the Texans are not alone in essentially erasing their 4-12 record and all of its fallout from existence. The Texans won the AFC South in 2015 and 2016 thanks in part to strong defenses.

Vrabel had been seen as a fast riser in this league before Saturday, and the Texans' bad defensive numbers have a lot to do with J.J. Watt and Whitney Mercilus suffering season-ending injuries in the first month.
