We noted yesterday that new Titans coach Mike Munchak might not bring offensive coordinator Mike Heimerdinger back. Now it’s official.
Adam Schefter of ESPN and Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean are both reporting that Heimerdinger was fired today.
Heimerdinger toughed it out through a 2010 season in which he was diagnosed with cancer, and the Titans organization showed its support by, among other things, giving him a game ball after a win in December and nominating him for the Don Shula NFL Coach of the Year award in January.
But now Heimerdinger is out of a job, and Munchak will take the offense in a different direction.
