The Titans and head coach Mike Mularkey have agreed to part ways after the two “couldn’t come to an agreement over the future,” SB Nation is reporting.
“I want to thank Mike Mularkey for his contributions to our franchise over his tenure with our organization. He took over our team during a low moment and together with Jon built a solid foundation for our franchise. I appreciated that Mike devoted himself to this team and the community,” Titans controlling owner Amy Adams Strunk said in part in a statement released Monday.
“It is certainly unfortunate that we couldn’t find enough common ground. I generally believe that continuity is the best path for success, but I also view this as an important moment for our football team as we try to make that next step to sustained success on the field. Jon will begin the search immediately to identify that person.”
Mularkey officially served as head coach from January 16, 2016, onward, after serving as an interim coach for the last five games of the 2015 season.
SB Nation notes The Titans finished second behind the Jacksonville Jaguars in the AFC South in 2017.
