Tennessee Titans hire Mike Vrabel as new head coach


"I have always had a great deal of respect for Mike as a player and as a coach", Robinson said.

Considering Vrabel is a defensive minded coach, the Titans' offensive success in 2018 will largely depend on who is hired as the offensive coordinator.

Mike Vrabel had a prolific and successful football career on the field, earning three Super Bowl rings as a linebacker and occasional end zone target for the Patriots.

Vrabel went to Houston in 2014 and coached linebackers with the Texans for three seasons before becoming coordinator.

Titans owner Amy Adams Strunk said in a statement it was easy to see Vrabel's commanding presence and relationship with general manager Jon Robinson.

It's hard to make any kind of evaluation of this hire until we know who Vrabel will hire as offensive coordinator, and even then we won't know much until we actually see Marcus Mariota operate the new system of choice.
