Nashville, TN – The Tennessee Titans informed Mike Mularkey this morning that they are parting ways with him as the team’s head coach.
General Manager Jon Robinson thanks Mike Mularkey for all he has done for team and community. Robinson said the Titans are committed to winning a championship.
The search for a new head coach begins immediately.
“At the end of the day we felt like we needed to go down a different path to move forward,” stated Robinson.
Robinson said himself and president/CEO Steve Underwood met with Mularkey this morning to give him the news.
“This was a very hard decision. But said it was done in best interest of the Titans,” said Robinson.
Statement from Amy Adams Strunk, Titans Controlling Owner
“I want to thank Mike Mularkey for his contributions to our franchise over his tenure with our organization. He took over our team during a low moment and together with Jon built a solid foundation for our franchise. I appreciated that Mike devoted himself to this team and the community.
In fact, we did discuss extending his future with our team over the past week, but in those discussions about the direction of the team, it became evident that we saw different paths to achieve greater success.
It is certainly unfortunate that we couldn’t find enough common ground. I generally believe that continuity is the best path for success, but I also view this as an important moment for our football team as we try to make that next step to sustained success on the field. Jon will begin the search immediately to identify that person.”
