The Titans were apparently willing to give head coach Mike Munchak an extension and a raise if he would make certain changes to his staff, but the immensely loyal Munchak parted ways with the only professional organization he has known (he has been a player or coach for the Oilers/Titans every year since being chosen 8th overall in the 1982 draft). Everyone assumed that this would lead to being hired as head coach at his alma mater Penn State after Bill O'Brien left for the Texans job, but now it looks like PSU if offering the job to Vanderbilt's head coach James Franklin, and all indications are that he will accept.
So where does that leave Munchak? He interviewed for the head coaching position with the Detroit Lions, but it is widely expected that that job will go to Ken Whisenhunt. Before Munchak replaced Jeff Fisher as head coach, he was the OL coach for the Titans ever since they moved to Tennessee from Houston. He was never a O.C. playcaller, so if he does not get a head coaching gig again, he would likely be back in line for another OL coach gig once again.
He is a PA native (northeast, though, not southwest). Up here in my neck of the woods in NEPA, they named the street where they built the new Scranton High School after him. He brings extensive coaching experience and also has the cache of being a Hall of Fame offensive lineman as a player as well.
Thoughts on the possibilities of bringing Coach Munchak to the Burgh to replace Bicknell?
