In what can only be described as disappointing news for the rest of the AFC South, the Titans got smart and decided they no longer wanted to employ Mike Mularkey. That means there are now five (5) NFL head coaching vacancies, as the Titans join the Cardinals, Colts, Giants, and Lions in searching for the next Vince Lombardi.

The defensive coordinator for your Houston Texans, Mike Vrabel, is already known to have interviewed with the Colts and Lions.

Now the Titans want to talk with Vrabel about succeeding Mularkey in Nashville.

In the article linked above, McClain notes that “Vrabel has a long relationship with Titans general manager Jon Robinson from his playing career with New England, where Robinson worked in personnel for Bill Belichick.”

Assuming reports that the Lions will tap Matt Patricia for their opening and McDaniels is heading to Indianapolis are accurate, whether Vrabel returns to Houston for another year may come down to whether the Titans make him an offer to be their head coach.
