Nashville, TN – On the field, Titans fans will get their first glimpse of the team as constructed by new general manager Jon Robinson and Mike Mularkey, each of whom were named to their posts in January by controlling owner Amy Adams Strunk.
Although he is a native of Union City, TN, Robinson is a newcomer to the organization. Mularkey was hired as tight ends coach in 2014, promoted to assistant head coach/tight ends coach during the 2015 offseason, and then spent the final nine games of 2015 as interim head coach.
Nashville, TN – With the second overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, the Tennessee Titans selected quarterback Marcus Mariota, the former Oregon quarterback and 2014 Heisman Trophy winner. Mariota later became the first quarterback in franchise history to start in Week 1 of his rookie season and recorded 12 total starts. He missed four contests due to injury.
Mariota unquestionably raised the bar for franchise rookie quarterbacks, breaking the club’s rookie records for attempts (370), yards (2,818), completions (230) and touchdowns (19).

Jon Robinson and Mike Mularkey chosen to lead team into 2016 off season
Nashville, TN – The Tennessee Titans enter 2016 with new leadership at the top of football operations. General manager Jon Robinson and head coach Mike Mularkey were named to their respective posts less than two weeks after the conclusion of the 2015 regular season, charged by controlling owner Amy Adams Strunk with building a consistent playoff contender.
It marked the first time since 1981 in which the franchise hired a general manager and head coach in the same off season. With the NFL Scouting Combine, free agency, the NFL Draft and the players’ off season workout program on the horizon, Robinson and Mularkey have launched their efforts in earnest.
Nashville, TN – The Tennessee Titans have hired Mike Mularkey on a permanent basis, removing his interim tag and making him the 18th head coach in franchise history.
“The vision Mike presented for our football team during this search as well as the character, integrity, and leadership skills he displayed during the last two months of the season makes him the right coach for the Tennessee Titans,” said Titans Controlling Owner and Co-Chairman of the Board of Directors Amy Adams Strunk.
Nashville, TN – The Tennessee Titans have agreed in principle with Jon Robinson to serve as the team’s General Manager. Robinson joins the Titans after spending two years as the Director of Player Personnel for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
“We are thrilled that Jon has agreed in principle to become our general manager,” said Titans Controlling Owner and Co-Chairman of the Board of Directors Amy Adams Strunk. “As we visited with Jon and researched his career, his proven track record for scouting talent, leadership skills, and ability to build relationships make him an ideal candidate to lead our football operation. Jon is a proud Tennessean who is excited to be coming home, and we look forward to the future of our football team under his leadership.”
