Titans coach Mike Munchak hasn’t been fired. But he hasn’t been assured another season as head coach, either.
The Titans released a statement on Friday night saying that team President and CEO Tommy Smith and General Manager Ruston Webster spent the day meeting with Munchak and ended the meeting without making a determination about Munchak’s status.
“I said all along that we would review every aspect of the football operations at the conclusion of the season – in early January,” Smith said. “Today I sat down with Ruston and Mike and we discussed every coach and player on the roster. We had good discussions, but no final decisions were made.”
Webster issued a similar statement.
“The three of us met all day today in Houston. We had a good conversation in regards to the team and moving forward. Nothing final has been decided at this point, but we hope to have a decision soon,” Webster said.
The fact that Munchak emerged from the meeting without losing his job is a good sign for his ability to keep his job going forward. But Munchak will likely need to make some changes (including a shakeup of his coaching staff) before the Titans are prepared to make it official that Munchak is their coach for 2014.
