    At least the potential GMs are smart.

    I GOOD GM won't accept this job if he doesn't have a voice in the HC hiring.

    I really hope ALL GM's interviewed have ZERO interest in retaining Mularkey. That should send a message to ownership. My nightmare is hiring Marc Ross because he'd keep Mularkey (since they worked together in Buffalo?).. God, imagine that Lol

    Mike Mularkey - Tennessee Titans - 2016 Player Profile -

    "It's hard to make this stuff up sometimes. The Titans have yet to even hire a general manager, but are apparently comfortable saddling whomever replaces Ruston Webster with a 54-year-old interim coach. This is how bad teams stay bad. Mularkey's formal interview is expected to come later in the week. The Titans have yet to interview anyone else, so it indeed appears to be Mularkey's job to lose"

    That and considering they haven't interviewed anyone else really ... I see Teryl Austin is next but knowing the Titans it's just to satisfy the Rooney rule - which I hope not - the cart may be still hooked up to Mularkey

    Or the guy they want is still coaching now. While coaches in the playoffs can't interview, it doesn't stop agents from gauging interest.

    Eh, not really buying it just yet. At the end of the day it makes sense they will interview Mularkey first. He is our in house candidate and teams often interview those guys first. It also make sense we interview him before we hired a GM because we already have an idea who he is.

    Once we hire a GM, which I would hope it comes later in the week as it was reported we interviewed the final candidate yesterday, I'd honestly think we will start seeing HC candidates bought in. Even then, I don't believe we should expect to see a quick turn around hire there either. As many others have said, if we hire a new GM he will certainly want to at least sit in and have input on the new HC. IMO I think that requirement is laxed significantly if the candidate is in house and the franchise have at least some idea who the guy is as a coach.

    I say as many others say, its a slow process for us right now, but definitely too early in the game to start panicking or making assumptions. Despite all these reports no one really knows the front office plans except them. So lets just wait and see what they do. I have a gut feeling we will interview deep into the post season.

    The only way Mularkey stays is if Ross or beddingfield are hired as the GM. Otherwise the writing is on the wall because the other prospective GMs will not accept a job with an ultimatum to keep Mularkey. If we go the first route you can expect me and probably many many more fans to find new teams to follow.
