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.
