Titans Fire Coach Ken Whisenhunt, Name Mike Mularkey Interim Coach

Tennessee Titans v Houston Texans

The Titans have fired head coach Ken Whisenhunt, firing him just two seasons into the job.

The team has named assistant coach Mike Mularkey the interim coach for now.

Whisenhunt was just 3–20 in his second season with the Titans. This season the only win the Titans had was opening day against the Buccaneers on the road.

“After thoughtful consideration, the decision has been made to relieve Ken Whisenhunt of his head coaching duties,” Titans controlling owner Amy Adams Strunk said in a statement.

“We have expected more progress on the field, and I felt it was time to move in a different direction. I would like to thank Ken for his efforts with our team, as he worked very hard to try to move us forward.”

Whisenhunt inked a five-year contract with Tennessee last January. As for Mularkey, he has coached in the NFL for more than 20 years, including two years as the head coach for the Buffalo Bills and one at the helm of the Jacksonville Jaguars.

    Today I have stood, where once Peyton Manning stood, and took an oath to fans of good football. It is very appropriate then that from this Cradle of the Vols, this very Heart of the Legend of General Neyland, that today we sound the drum for victory as have our generations of forebears before us done, time and time again through history. Let us rise to the call of football-loving blood that is in us and send our answer to the disgraceful team that claims to represent us. In the name of the greatest fans that have ever trod this earth, I draw the line in the dust and toss the gauntlet before the feet of losers . . . and I say . . . OILERS today . . . OILERS tomorrow . . . OILERS forever.

    GO BACK TO HOUSTON, YOU LOSERS!
