Titans President Tommy Smith: ‘No Final Decisions Were Made’



Titans president /CEO Tommy Smith released a statement regarding their evaluation of the coaching staff and front office.

“I said all along that we would review every aspect of the football operations at the conclusion of the season – in early January. Today I sat down with Ruston and Mike and we discussed every coach and player on the roster. We had good discussions, but no final decisions were made.”

  • Ian Rapoport is still “hearing” that Munchak will remain the Titans’ head coach as long as he is willing to make some changes. 

Reports from earlier in the day mentioned that HC Mike Munchak was likely to be back, but this isn’t exactly the most supportive release with regards to Munchak.

We’ll have more as the news is available.


According to Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean, “indications” are that Titans president Tommy Smith has made the decision to retain HC Mike Munchak for the 2014 season.

  • Wyatt adds that Munchak and GM Ruston Webster met with Smith and agreed on several topics.
    • According to Wyatt, a decision is expected to be announced soon.
  • Ian Rapoport reports that there is no “firm word” regarding Munchak, but adds that his sources have informed him that he is “likely safe.
    • Rapoport adds that both Titans’ assistants and several members of the organization have been kept in the dark regarding Munchak’s status.

Reports from earlier in the day indicated that Munchak’s job was in “limbo,” but a change in leadership was not guaranteed.

Munchak took over for long-time HC Jeff Fisher who was fired in 2011. Since then, Munchak has led the Titans to a record of 22-26 (.458).

There is still a chance that changes will be made to the team’s coaching staff including offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains.

Jim Wyatt reports that Titans HC Mike Munchak’s job is still in limbo as the team continue to mull over their options.

  • According to Wyatt, the Titans could still go either way regards to Munchak.
  • Wyatt adds that although Munchak returning remains a possibility, he doesn’t see any scenario where Tennessee would give him a contract extension.

Yesterday, Wyatt reported that the belief is that team president Tommy Smith is leaning toward keeping Munchak, despite the obvious concerns regarding his tenure.

The Titans have been taking their time with this decision, but the longer they delay a change, the less options will be available to them once NFL and college teams have new head coaches in place.
