Tennessee Titans coach Mike Munchak had his meeting with CEO Tommy Smith and general manager Ruston Webster on Friday in Houston, and though there were reports and indications that Munchak will be retained, the Titans issued statements that said no final decision had been made.
Sources close to TitanInsider indicated that no decision of Munchak staying had been made either.
“I said all along that we would review every aspect of the football operations at the conclusion of the season - in early January,” Smith said. “Today I sat down with Ruston and Mike, and we discussed every coach and player on the roster. We had good discussions, but no final decisions were made.”
Webster's statement echoed that of Smith's, as the general manager said, “The three of us (Webster, Smith, Mike Munchak) met all day today in Houston. We had a good conversation in regards to the team and moving forward. Nothing final has been decided at this point, but we hope to have a decision soon.”
Munchak has one year remaining on his contract following a 7-9 season in 2013.
If Munchak is retained, it likely will come with changes made to the coaching staff. The Titans may be poised to part ways with defensive coordinator Jerry Gray and install senior assistant Gregg Williams to run the defense.
Other assistants' positions might also come into question, and other changes could be made within the organization, if Munchak is retained.
