Titans' Munchak not worried about job future
Tennessee Titans coach Mike Munchak insists his shaky job security is not a distraction despite his team's 5-8 record.
"We have three games to go. We have a lot of football to play, so that is not a concern right now," Munchak said Monday, via Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean. "Once we play our last game, we'll have an opportunity to speak on how we go forward as a football team like I did last year and the year before that. I've had the same discussion when the season ends and I'm assuming I'll have that same discussion when the season ends.
"I'll have a chance to talk to everybody then and say 'Here's what happened. Here's how we go forward. Here's the plan.' And then a decision is made and we'll move forward."
The front office spent more than $100 million in free agency to build a run-first team, but Tennessee has fallen short of that vision.
There have been reports that Titans are ready to move on from star running back Chris Johnson and even quarterback Jake Locker.
The Titans have squandered a 3-1 start this year by losing seven of the next nine. Munchak's overall record is 20-25. He is 4-12 in division games in his tenure.
Tommy Smith is the new president and CEO of the Titans, replacing his father-in-law, Bud Adams, who died on Oct. 21.
