    seems he has his buddies loyalty over EVERYTHING else. Good friend to have... but the line is drawn there.

    I guess so. His buddies were getting fired anyways. At least try to save who you can.

    I hate that, but ive had a couple of friends saying we should keep munch solely "because hes a good guy" .... which turned me against him(munch) the last two months... after he was fired i wished him nothing but luck... after hearing this stuff though he seems like he had himself as his main interest... not the organizations in the least bit.

    Yeah keeping someone solely because they're a good guy is pretty stupid in business. I hope no more of this selfish stuff comes up because I really don't want to change my opinion on the man.

    I get so tired of the "He's a good guy" syndrome. That is no reason to keep a coach, if he doesn't get results, then what's the point?

    While Munchak’s loyalty was admirable, coaches who joined him last year on short-term deals -- receivers coach Shawn Jefferson and running back Sylvester Croom -- may now lose their jobs as a result of their boss' commitment to other assistants.

    Yes, they’ll be in line to still collect their salaries if they don’t work elsewhere next year.

    Munchak said his departure had more to do than just his refusal to part ways with buddies on staff. Said he was willing to make changes

    But Munchak said he wasn't going to make changes his staff he didn't believe in #Titans

    Munchak: “It’s not like "Munch isn’t here any more because he wouldn’t fire two guys.' In my eyes, there was more to it than that.”

    Munchak: “I know a lot of people might not have been happy if I was back. But I had a plan and I believed it was going to work.”

    Munchak: “I stand up 4 guys who are good coaches. It bothers me when people say I'm not here because I didn’t want to fire my friends.”

    More Mike Munchak: “I wanted to be here. I have been here for 30 years. These jobs are hard to come by." #Titans

    Munchak cont: "I know the chance of me being a head coach again in the NFL aren’t that great. Most guys
    get one shot at it.” #Titans

    Munchak: "But I wanted to do it with the right people, and do it the right way. I wasn't going to fire guys if I didn't believe in it.”

    More Munchak: “The way they wanted to adjust the staff vs. me wasn’t going to work. So we disagreed on it.” #Titans

    Munchak: “It wasn’t about Chet or Bruce. People say “those are Munch’s guys.” A lot of guys were going to be affected.” #Titans

    Mike Munchak: "Obviously they made it easy. They fired all of us so they could start over.” #Titans

    Munchak: “It’s not like I came in and they said, “You’re fired. End of discussion.” We felt we were going to work it out." #Titans

    Munchak: “It is hard. I was hoping to retire a #Titan. I was hoping to say, “Hey, I made it 40 years with the same organization.”

    Munchak said he thinks the #Titans will be a playoff team next year. "But unfortunately me and my staff won't be coaching them."

    Munchak: "I didn’t do anything to look like I was a great, loyal guy who went above & beyond the call of duty by not firing coaches"

    Munchak: "For me to maintain a job and a lot of guys lose jobs on a plan I didn’t think was right, I couldn’t do that.”

    Munchak: ‘I can’t fire someone when I don’t believe they should be fired. Firing someone is awful.'

    Munchak said it was emotional cleaning out his office. "I feel bad for my family & my wife, who spent so much effort into my office."

    Munchak tells @jwyattsports "they fired all of us" which more than suggest he doesn't think any staff stays. #Titans

    Not sure if this has been posted but Channel 2 has a 10 minute exclusive interview w/Munch: http://www.wkrn.com/story/24369080/mike-munchak-interview

    Cool of him to do such an in-depth interview with local media so soon after getting canned. Really tough not to like the guy on a personal level. Just too bad he's such a crap head coach.
