    I got a question:

    Why offer Munchak an extension and keep him...but want to get rid of everyone else on his staff?

    Isn't that like replacing every single part of your car (engine/interior) and just keeping the shell vs just buying a new car?

    It's an old ploy. Made him an offer they knew he wouldn't accept.

    Well, they didn't want to get rid of everyone on the staff. But they did want to get rid of some key pieces (including OC & DC).

    But I agree with you. I really can't wrap my head around where Ruston and Tommy were coming from in all this. It seems to me you either believe in the guy and the direction he's taking the team, or you don't. I don't get all this wishy-washy stuff.

    If you literally have to FORCE your head coach to make the changes you think are necessary to build a winner then why do you want that person as head coach in the first place?

    I've heard this as a reason a few times. And while I wouldn't dismiss it as a possibility, it sure seems like a very dangerous move. I don't see how they could've KNOWN for a fact he wouldn't take it. He has family to consider, other staff members, etc.

    If that was indeed their plan then it obviously worked. But they ran the risk of being stuck with a guy they really didn't want. And for what? To save a little money (in the grand scheme of things)? To not have to technically "fire" him?

    I believe they did know he wouldn't accept it.

    Their offer wouldn't have saved the family any money. It did allow Munch, whom by all accounts was well respected by both of them, to save face by not being fired. If he had accepted, it would have at least strengthed the coached staff, which was a weak link in their opinion.

    Contracts expired for #Titans assistants today. All but one defensive coach (Chet Parlavecchio, LBs) is believed to have an expiring deal

    Jim Wyatt@jwyattsports 3m
    That means defensive coaches like Gregg Williams and Jerry Gray are officially free agents, free to pursue other opportunities #Titans
