The Tennessee Titans fires head coach Mike Vrabel and replaces him with Brian Callahan.
The Tennessee Titans surprised the football world by firing their excellent head coach Mike Vrabel. The sack happened after the end of the regular season. Even more shocking than that was who they hired to replace him. Brian Callahan, who helped the Cincinnati Bengals reach the Super Bowl as their offensive coordinator, was named as the Titans’ head coach going forward.
The Titans had somewhat poor season, but they were also one of the best teams in the conference under Vrabel. In his six seasons with the team, the former Houston Texans’ DC led the Titans to a 54-45 record and three playoff berths. He was one win away from taking the Titans to the Super Bowl in 2019 when they lost in the AFC Championship game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Callahan leaves the Bengals after serving as the offensive coordinator for the team from 2019 to 2023. It included the Bengals’ fairy-tale Super Bowl run.
Callahan is well-known for having helped quarterback Joe Burrow. Callahan helped Burrow develop into one of the NFL’s best passers. He has also received praise for getting outstanding performance out of Jake Browning in the previous season following Burrow’s wrist injury.
Titans finalized their football structure: In addition to naming Brian Callahan as head coach, the Titans also promoted Ran Carthon to Executive Vice President/General Manager, and Chad Brinker to President of Football Operations.
