Munchak to return in 2013

Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Munchak will return to the sideline for a third season, according to league sources, who indicated that Munchak’s job appears safe.

Munchak’s Titans dipped to 6-10 this season after finishing 9-7 a year ago in his first go-around as head coach.

COO Mike Reinfeldt, who formerly served as general manager, was fired by owner Bud Adams on Monday, leaving Munchak and general manager Ruston Webster as the team's primary decision makers.

Even though Munchak is safe, there still could be plenty of changes on the horizon for the Titans. There may be moves made among the assistant coaches and coordinators in order to revamp the staff.

As well, there should be several roster moves as Webster indicated Sunday that upgrading the defense and fixing the offensive line would be among his off-season priorities in the draft and free agency.

Four of Tennessee's five starting linemen in training camp suffered season-ending injuries, and the defense gave up a franchise record 471 points this season.
