Ken Whisenhunt named new Titans Head Coach

Published Add your comment

Former San Diego Chargers offensive co-ordinator Ken Whisenhunt has been named as the new head coach of the Tennessee Titans

The Titans are said to have made the decision after finishing their final interview with Bengals DC, and a favourite for the other vacant positions, Mike Zimmer. The Titans preferred Whisenhunt who pushed Zimmer into second place. 

Whisenhunt, who turns 52 on February 28, has a 45-51 record as an NFL head coach, spending it all with the Arizona Cardinals. He is 4-2 in the playoffs, however, and took the Cardinals to Super Bowl XLIIII against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

He previously worked as the Steelers' offensive coordinator, helping that team win Super Bowl XL over the Seattle Seahawks. Arizona fired him after five seasons and a 5-11 record in 2012.

So what will Whisenhunt have to work with...

At the moment he has a head office that seem very unstable in recent times, no real franchise quarterback to rely on and in Chris Johnson, a star player who seems desperate to either become the focal point of the offense, or leave the organization altogether.
