Two weeks ago, Texans offensive assistant coach Bruce Matthews said that he signed a two-year contract to stay in Houston.
Now he’s headed to Tennessee to meet with Mike Munchak, which is considered a formality before Matthews joins the Titans staff. So what happened?
Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean indicates Matthews never actually put pen to paper in Houston. Since he’s technically unsigned, he’s free to join the division rival Titans.
Matthews must have changed course when Jeff Fisher was fired in Tennessee. As John McClain of the Houston Chronicle points out, Munchak and Matthews are “best friends” that presented one another at their respective Hall of Fame ceremonies.
The Titans may not have a quarterback, but they will definitely have great depth when it comes to legendary offensive linemen on staff.
