    SUMMARY: The Tennessee Titans denied permission for the Green Bay Packers to interview LB coach Dave McGinnis for their defensive coordinator position. McGinnis joined the Titans in 2004 after formerly serving as head coach for the Arizona Cardinals from 2000-03. According to his agent who had no knowledge of the Packers interest, McGinnis is happy in Tennessee and does not want to leave.

    Maybe Schwartz is on his way out and McGinnis is getting promoted to DC??

    Fisher was on 104.5 this morning, and said McGinnis is happy here and didnt want to leave, so by denying the interview they were basically just simplifing the process (ie, one less step and McGinnins doesnt have to turn them down).

    You guys really need to give up about getting rid of Schwartz. Its not gonna happen.

    Based on the LB play last season, what does McGinnis give us at DC that Schwartz doesn't?

    Rumour has it that Reese and Fisher denied access to McGinnis but dropped to their knees and begged the Packers to give Schwartz an interview.

    After coaching some of the best LBs in NFL history I'm sure McGinnis was frustrated having to coach one OLB with one leg and a MLB with DT speed.

    No doubt. But those are the same LBs Schwartz had to scheme around too.

    I'm just saying McGinnis won't be able to produce any better until the position is upgraded.
