Tennessee Titans interim head coach Mike Mularkey could have that tag removed and stay on in the same position next season, according to a report by ESPN’s Chris Mortensen.
Appearing on television today, Mortensen said that Mularkey had gone from “leaning out to leaning safe.”
Mularkey, who began the season as the Titans’ tight ends coach before Ken Whisenhunt was fired at midseason, has gone 2-5 with Tennessee and holds an 18-38 career record in coaching stops with the Buffalo Bills and Jacksonville Jaguars. He also has over two decades’ worth of coaching experience.
But the reality is that Mularkey is not the man for the job, even if ownership issues in Tennessee are what lead to him staying. This team is an absolute mess right now despite having its quarterback of the future in Marcus Mariota, and needs to just blow up the entire ballroom from the front office to the coaching staff. Everything must have a clean slate starting next year.
That said, since Mularkey is a holdover from a previous regime, it’s time for him to go.
