When an NFL team has a losing season, their management wants the team to make changes.
But apparently, former Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Munchak did not want to make changes to his coaching staff. In the end, it cost him his job and an end of 30-years with the Titans organization.

With Munchak now free, he is expected to interview with the Penn State Nittany Lions for their head coaching position. He is one of the favorites for the position along with Vanderbilt’s James Franklin and Miami Florida’s Al Golden.
Munchak previously was a Penn State player, where he was a second-team All-American in 1980. He was drafted in the first round of the 1982 draft, where he was the 8th overall pick.
Since that time, he was a player with the Houston Oilers from 1982 through 1993. Then moved to be an Offensive Assistant/Quality Control Coach from 1994 through 1996 with the Oilers.
He was then promoted to Offensive Line coach with the Tennessee Oilers/Titans from 1997 through 2010. He then was promoted to Titans head coach in 2011, where he just had a 22-26 record.
The Titans were 9-7 in 2011, before going 6-10 in 2012 and 7-9 this year.
