NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) The Tennessee Titans have agreed to terms with Jon Robinson, Tampa Bay's director of player personnel, as their general manager.

The Titans announced the deal Thursday night. They also confirmed interviewing Doug Marrone for their head coach opening, the first candidate Tennessee has confirmed.

Robinson interviewed with the Titans last week. A native of Union City, Tennessee, Robinson just finished his second season running Tampa Bay's scouting department and overseeing both college and pro scouting.

He started in the NFL as an area scout for the New England Patriots in 2002, then a regional scout in 2006 before becoming the Patriots' director of college scouting between 2009 and 2013.

Robinson replaces Ruston Webster who was fired Jan. 4 after the Titans went 5-27 record the past two seasons.
