The franchise originally known as the Titans won’t allow the franchise currently known as the Titans to interview one of its assistant coaches.
John Clayton of ESPN.com reports that the Jets have refused to give the Titans permission to interview offensive line coach Bill Callahan for the vacant offensive coordinator job in Tennessee.
Callahan reportedly is interested in becoming an offensive coordinator again, since it could help him become a head coach again. But since he’s under contract with the Jets, the Jets can prevent him from taking another job with another team other than the job of head coach, even if it constitutes a promotion.
Some would say it isn’t fair. Others would say that coaches who want flexibility should sacrifice the security that comes from multi-year deals and ink one-year contracts instead.
