The Tennessee Titans have hired their next head coach on Saturday. The team has hired Mike Vrabel to lead the team moving forward.
Vrabel replaces Mike Mularkey, who parted ways with the team this week just one day after a news report surfaced that he was close to an extension with the team.
Vrabel was the front runner almost immediately for the job. He was previously the Houston Texans defensive coordinator this past season.
Vrabel was with the Texans for the past four seasons. He also spent 14-years in the NFL, including winning three Super Bowls with the New England Patriots.
“We want to build a culture around winning, competitiveness, and toughness,” Vrabel said. “Everything we do is going to be geared towards winning and being physical. We want to prepare our players so they know what to do, which will allow them to play fast and aggressive.”
Titans general manager Jon Robinson previously worked for the Patriots. They were together from 2002 to 2009 in the same organization.
“I have always had a great deal of respect for Mike, as a player and as a coach,” Robinson said. “I saw him up close as a player for the Patriots and sash ow he prepared himself to be successful on a daily basis. He was the ultimate team-first player, and he embodies that same mindset as a coach.
“He is intelligent, energetic, detailed, and a leader, whose deep passion for this game will resonate with our players. As a coach, I have seen him develop talent at both the college and NFL level, and our players in position for them to be successful. I am excited to get him in front of our team and watch us grow together as a team.”
Vrabel will be officially introduced as the new Titans Head Coach on Tuesday.
