The Titans have been concentrating on interviews with potential General Managers since the end of the regular season, but it appears they’re ready to start talking to some coaching candidates.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Titans are set to interview Lions defensive coordinator Teryl Austin. Austin has been a busy man since coaching searches started around the league. He’s also interviewed with the Giants, Browns and Dolphins.
The only other candidate for the Titans job that’s been identified at this point is Mike Mularkey, who took over as interim coach when the Titans axed Ken Whisenhunt during the regular season. Rapoport reports that he’s expected to formally interview for the permanent position on Thursday.
Rapoport also calls Mularkey the “clear front-runner” for the job, something that has appeared to be the case for a while even as the Titans look for someone to run their football operations after dispatching Ruston Webster at the end of the regular season.
