    When Mike Munchak parted ways with the Titans earlier over the weekend, he wasn’t sure he’d ever get another similar opportunity in the NFL.

    “I know the chances of me being a head coach again in the NFL aren’t that great,’’ he said. “Most guys get one shot.”

    Munchak is reportedly going to get another chance, however. He’s scheduled to interview with the Detroit Lions on Friday about their head coaching vacancy, per Ed Werder of ESPN.

    Munchak posted a 22-26 record in three seasons with the Titans, including a 7-9 mark last season.

    He’s also reportedly among the finalists at his alma mater, Penn State.

    The Lions are looking for a new head coach after firing Jim Schwartz following the season. Chargers offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt is considered the favorite in Detroit. He’s also a candidate with the Titans.

    Imagine if Munchak actually got the job in Detroit......

    And as good as Munchak is with people i wouldn't doubt it at all if he did end up surprising us all and getting another head coaching gig somewhere.

    Why do teams like to recycle bad coaches so much?

    Munchak, you are many things, a head coach is not one of them though.

    Because they saw the situation in Tennessee was less than desirable and think things could be different on their team. Same reason Fisher was highly regarded. People think of us as a talentless, dysfunctional organization.
