Adam Schefter reports that all six NFL teams with head-coaching vacancies either have or will request permission to interview Titans OC Arthur Smith.
This group, obviously, includes the Chargers, Jets, Jaguars, Lions, Falcons, and Texans.
At this point, odds seem to be good Smith will land a head-coaching at some point in the next few weeks with this level of interest.
Smith, 38, began his coaching career as a graduate assistant at North Carolina back in 2006. From there, he worked for the Redskins for two years before being hired as an administrative assistant/defensive intern at Ole Miss in 2010.
The Titans would hire Smith as their defensive assistant/quality control coach a year later and he worked his way to TEs coach in 2015. Tennessee promoted him to offensive coordinator after Matt LaFleur accepted the Packers’ HC job.
In 2020, the Titans offense ranked No. 2 in total yards, No. 4 in total points, No. 2 in rushing yards and No. 23 in passing yards.
