Titans interview 2 more candidates in Mularkey, Teryl Austin
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) The second NFL team to fire a coach this season, the Titans are finally picking up their coaching search now that Tennessee is the only franchise still with an opening.
The Titans confirmed Friday that they interviewed interim coach Mike Mularkey and Detroit defensive coordinator Teryl Austin.
The interviews come a day after the Titans both hired Jon Robinson as their general manager and made former Buffalo coach Doug Marrone their first candidate to interview with them for the coach opening.
Mularkey finished the season as interim head coach after the Titans fired Ken Whisenhunt. Mularkey went 2-7 with three of those losses by six or fewer points. He also improved protection of rookie quarterback Marcus Mariota and was only a win shy in nine games of matching what Whisenhunt managed in 23. Mularkey is 18-39 as a head coach after two seasons with Buffalo and a season in Jacksonville.
