Tennessee parted ways with head coach Mike Mularkey following the Titans' 35-14 loss to the New England Patriots in the AFC Divisional Round. "Mike has a commanding presence and a deep knowledge for how he will attack this head coaching opportunity". Having been in the NFL in one capacity or another since 1981, he's one of the league's most experienced coaches.

Tennessee Titans officials announced they have conducted their first two interviews for a head coach candidate.

Bill O'Brien will have to get used to seeing Mike Vrabel on the opposing sideline twice a year.

Vrabel started his coaching career at his alma mater Ohio State before moving on to a linebackers coach role with the Texans in 2014.

In other words, if we are going to pretend 2017 never happened like the Texans and Titans appear to be doing, then essentially the Texans lost a pretty good linebacker coach on Saturday, that's it.

"Leader of men", Robinson said of what he wants in a new head coach.

It also said "identity politics" could fan geopolitical and domestic risks
Aside from suffering disruptions, organisations have also suffered huge losses as a result of persistent cyber attacks. Its annual Global Risks Report says that in 2017, the environment was by far the greatest concern raised by experts.

Vrabel will be replaced as defensive coordinator by former Patriots coach Romeo Crenell who is already an assistant head coach with the Texans.

The 42-year-old has spent the last four seasons with the Houston Texans, the first three as the linebackers coach and the last as the defensive coordinator. They won two Super Bowls during that time, with Vrabel a player and Robinson as a scout.

Playing 14 years in the NFL, Vrabel was drafted in the third round of the 1997 NFL Draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers out of Ohio State. "We want to prepare our players so they know what to do, which will allow them to play fast and aggressive". Vrabel has worked with a wide array of talent in Houston and quickly built up a name as a rock solid coach.

Changes to coaching staffs occur with every team every offseason.

The Titans finished the 2017-18 regular season with a 9-7 record before edging the Kansas City Chiefs in the wild card round of the playoffs. "He'll be back being the defensive coordinator and still have the assistant head coach title". Playing in the National Football League for 14 years should give him instant credibility and respect with his players.
