    Most proven HCs retire before they go to another team. And why would they? If they are proven, they are doing a good job and not getting fired.

    I imagine Whisenhunt will make his decision tomorrow.

    saw an interesting start to a Tenn.com article:

    When NFL teams went shopping for head coaches last offseason, they showed a decided preference for candidates with a background on the offensive side of the football.

    In fact, seven of the eight new hires for 2013 were offensive minds.

    Three of the offensive hires — Andy Reid in Kansas City, Chip Kelly in Philadelphia and Mike McCoy in San Diego — guided their team to the playoffs this season. Two others — Bruce Arians in Arizona and Marc Trestman in Chicago — fell just short of the postseason.

    The lone new head coach hired for 2013 with a defensive background was Gus Bradley in Jacksonville. He lost his first eight games before finishing 4-12 with a talent-depleted team.

    With that my stance doesn't change... Greg Roman please!!! Still though to be fair to Gus, he has/had a HORRIBLE team and I have a lot of respect for that dude. Hell, when Sen'Derrick is one of your highlight players, you got SERIOUS talent issues...

    Mentioned #Titans' serious interest in Chargers OC Ken Whisenhunt here last nt. But remember, this is very much his call. 3 teams interested

    You are using Mike Munchak, Wade Philips, and Norv Turner to make your case?

    Three guys that have since been fired, and none re-hired.

    In theory though I don't think it matters.

    If Quinn is who we want, I think we can have him easily. I think he would take the job.

    If we want Whisenhunt and wait to give Quinn a courtesy interview, that's a mistake, obviously. I don't think Whisenhunt makes it to the Super Bowl. Detroit will pull the trigger. And even if he likes us better, he won't pass up a job offer to wait for us. I wouldn't either.

    I didnt take a stance on it, I simply do as I always do and provide the facts. Do with it what you want, but dont think I said post super bowl hires are the way to go.

    Whisenhunt seems to be gaining some steam In Tennessee, hopefully he comes here. He was the coach I wanted from the start.

    If the Titans want Whisenhunt, they won't wait and give Quinn a "courtesy" interview. That's absurd.

    Whisenhunt's record as a head coach is below 500. Why is everybody so keen on him?

    The last 3 years at Arizona his teams were 5-11, 8-8 and 5-11. Is that the record we are looking for?

    Munch's worst season was 6-10.

    Whisenhunt won only when he had an elite QB and elite WRs so how does that make him an offensive genius?
