Warren Moon not on Munchak’s radar, yet

On Tuesday, we caught wind of a rumor that Hall of Fame quarterback Warren Moon could be joining Hall of Fame offensive lineman Mike Munchak on the coaching staff of the Tennessee Titans.

Instead of actually, you know, making calls and tracking down leads, we decided to ask Munchak about it during his appearance on Wednesday’s PFT Live.

“No, it’s the first I’ve heard of that,” Munchak said.  “But that’s an interesting idea.”

So based on the first part of Munchak’s response, Moon wasn’t on the Titans’ radar.  Based on the second part, maybe Munchak could be.

  1. “So based on the first part of Munchak’s response, Moon wasn’t on the Titans’ rader. Based on the second part, maybe Munchak could be.”

    So Muchchak is on his own radar????

  2. Warren Moon always impressed me with his intelligence and demeanor, not just his skills. He’d probably be a fine coach in some capacity. Could be position coach, I don’t know. We don’t want a Mike Singletary sequel.

    Meanwhile, if I were going after ex-players to move into the coaching ranks, I’d aggressively pursue Jackie Slater. You don’t play that position for over two decades without some smarts, but more than that, I saw him on TV shortly after his retirement. The man was born to teach football. Get him on the sidelines.

    I know Slater and Munchak weren’t teammates. I’m talking to every coach, GM, and owner in the league who will listen (which means nobody) when I say go after Slater.

  3. If it wasn’t for Warren Moon being denied an NFL oppurtunity early in his career thus being forced to spend a huge chunk of his football ability on the CFL, he’d have broken all of Dan Marino’s records.

    You mean Dan Marino would have never set those records in the first place (Moon was a CFL Rookie in 1978, Marino was a Rookie in 1983).

    But yes, I completely agree with your point.

    Your right on brother!!!

    I’ll go a step further and say Warren Moon, was probably the greatest quarterback I saw on a football field in his 30’s. He had a cannon and he was the most accurate qb I saw throwing on the run. The guy never had the coaching early in his career to be an NFL quarterback, he had to rely soley on his heart and gut. The so called NFL coaches during that time wanted to switch him to defensive back. The first good NFL coach he ever really had to recognize his talents wasn’t until he was in his late 20’s early 30’s and that coach was Jerry Glannville. Same Coach who traded away Brett Favre. It wasn’t until Jack Pardee centered the entire offense around Warren, then his talents flourished.

  6. By the way, I think it would be great to hire Moon as a coach. I think he would be “Dungy” like, where he could get a point or two across just by sharing his experiences. What better example then from him.

  7. Do not think Moon will take the job.

    He has a broadcasting gig.

    But I do think he’d do a nice job if he did…
