Mike Munchak not worried about his job future

It’s no mystery that Mike Munchak is on the hot seat, as are many in Tennessee.

But the Titans coach insists he’s not worried about that as he prepares his team for what could be his final three games.

The Titans have squandered a 3-1 start this year by losing seven of the next nine. Munchak’s overall record is 20-25, meaning not even an unlikely three-game win streak to close would get him to .500. He’s also 4-12 in division games in his tenure.

We have three games to go. We have a lot of football to play, so that is not a concern right now,” Munchak said, via Jim wyatt of the Tennesseean. “Once we play our last game, we’ll have an opportunity to speak on how we go forward as a football team like I did last year and the year before that. I’ve had the same discussion when the season ends and I’m assuming I’ll have that same discussion when the season ends.

“I’ll have a chance to talk to everybody then and say ‘Here’s what happened. Here’s how we go forward. Here’s the plan.’ And then a decision is made and we’ll move forward.”

Of course, there is one different element to the conversation — it will be held with new Titans CEO Tommy Smith, who replaces the late Bud Adams in that capacity.

Munchak said he and Smith were “on the same page.”

But with just a year left on his contract, there’s very little secure about his position.

    In fairness he has been stuck with Jake Locker and this is the first year the backup hasn’t been a guarantee to play better.

    My prediction: Mike Munchak will be terminated at seasons end, with his best record being 9-7 and several other disappointing seasons…you can’t say, the new CEO of the Titans will want to keep Munchak around and not want to put his own stamp on the franchise with his head coach and major changes going into 2014…including releasing or restructuring Runningback Chris Johnson’s huge contract…
    That’s the way I see it…

    I like Munchak, he clearly loves the organization. But I’m just not sure he’s HC material. I also just think it’s time for them to go outside the organization for the next HC. They need a new way of thinking with someone who can develop a QB. If that’s Locker, then great, if not, then find the right one. I still have high hopes for Locker & if he can stay healthy I think he can be developed by the right coach. I just don’t think Munchak & Loggains are the guys for that job. And we all know it’s a QB driven league now.

    Munchak and Smith are on the same page. The last page.

    Why should he be worried? He knows he’s going to be fired in 3 weeks.
