Titans hire Mike Vrabel to replace Mike Mularkey

Mike Vrabel has been hired as next head coach of the Tennessee Titans, just two days after being interviewed for the position following the stunning departure of Mike Mularkey.


Vrabel, 42, was the defensive coordinator of the Houston Texans this past season and coached the team’s linebackers three years before that. He’s a former NFL linebacker who has been long thought of as head coaching material. Now he has his first chance to prove he’s up to that daunting challenge.

Mularkey’s sudden departure came less than a day after it had been reported the Titans offered him a contract extension. However, on Monday morning after Tennessee lost to New England in the Divisional Round, he parted ways with the franchise.

Vrabel inherits a talented roster that has gone 9-7 the past two years. His most important immediate task will be to find an offensive coordinator and quarterback coach for young quarterback Marcus Mariota, who struggled for much of his third season.
