Another head coaching vacancy was filled on Wednesday with the Browns hiring Hue Jackson, leaving the Giants, Eagles, Buccaneers, 49ers and Titans still in need of a coach.

The Titans will reportedly take a step toward filling that need on Thursday. Adam Caplan of ESPN reports that the team will interview Jaguars assistant head coach/offensive line coach Doug Marrone on Thursday.

Marrone has been a popular candidate this offseason. He interviewed with the Browns and Dolphins before they went in other directions and has also spoken to the Giants.

The Titans have prioritized finding a new General Manager before turning their attentions to the head coaching position. Interim coach Mike Mularkey and Lions defensive coordinator Teryl Austin have been identified as other candidates for the job and Josina Anderson of ESPN reports that Austin will interview with the team on Friday.

    Why does this guy get interviews in the NFL? Does he have pictures or something? He QUIT on the team he was the head coach of, in basically a hissy fit.

    We’re settlers Ma. Dolphins already got the brightest young candidate, so we’ll settle for the left overs. Now go cut the cabbage.

    Marrone is a quitter. No team should hire this clown.

    My theory on Marrone quitting the Bills is that once Kyle Orton retired, he didn’t see the Bills upgrading their QB situation, and he had his fill of Manuel. And there may have been friction in the front office when he realized he didn’t have a straight line to the new owner.

    You nailed it, he got millions to leave too.

    It was a no brainer, leaving that God forsaken town with full pockets to boot.

    Not sure about whether to pursue a crappy re-tread HC or an assistant from a crappy team, the Titans go for the 2-for-1…

    Heard he likes analytics and would have fit in with Browns and their own wiz kid who will run the show.
