REPORT: Titans hire Ken Whisenhunt to be their Head Coach

According to multiple reports, San Diego Chargers offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt has been hired to be the new head coach of the Tennessee Titans, taking over for the recently-fired Mike Munchak.

There you have it. Less than 24 hours after the end of the San Diego Chargers playoff run came to a grinding halt, the team's offensive coordinator is moving on to Tennessee to try his hand at being a head coach once again.

Tennessee's head coaching position is one that I've been thinking about a lot lately. They don't have much in the way of QBs there (Jake Locker, Ryan Fitzpatrick), both RBs seem close to being washed up (Shonn Greene, Chris Johnson), and Kenny Britt is probably their 2nd best WR and that's saying a lot.

Mostly, though, I'm intrigued because the move to fire Mike Munchak felt very much like a "starting over" move. By that I mean that I don't believe Bud Adams, who passed away in 2013, would have fired Munchak. However, new team president Tommy Smith wanted to make his mark with his guy, and now that guy appears to be Ken Whisnehunt.

Despite yesterday's game and everything I said during and after it, I do still admire Ken Whisenhunt and appreciate everything he brought to the Chargers this season. I feel that his impact will be felt for more than just the one season he spent with the club, and I wish him the best with the Titans.
