Tennessee Titans offensive coordinator Arthur Smith will be a top target for NFL coaching openings at the end of the 2020 season. He could have several suitors for openings when they become available.
He likely would be a candidate for a team looking for an offensive-minded team. Right now, there are just two coaching opportunities available.
The New York Jets are also expected to become available. Adam Gase is expected to be fired at some point.
Smith has spent the last two seasons as the Titans offensive coordinator. He has turned around quarterback Ryan Tannehill’s career after he was acquired in a trade with the Miami Dolphins.
He was part of the Titans team that guided the team to the AFC Conference Championship, before they lost one-game short of the Super Bowl. Tennessee was defeated 35-24 by the Kansas City Chiefs.
Smith was praised by the media and analysts when Tennessee defeated top-ranked Baltimore Ravens 28-12 in the AFC Divisional Round.
Smith – whose father Frederick W. Smith is the founder of FedEx – replaced Matt LaFleur, who departed the Titans to become the Green Bay Packers head coach. In 2019, he guided the Titans to their highest scoring team in 16 seasons with very good seasons from Tannehill, Derrick Henry, and Jonnu Smith.
The 38-year-old has been with the Titans since the 2011 season. He first began as the Defensive Quality Control Coach, then switched to the Offensive Quality Control Coach in 2012.
Then, in 2013, he was promoted to Offensive Line & Tight Ends Assistant. Smith was then hired as Assistant Tight Ends Coach for the 2014 and 2015 seasons.
Smith spent three seasons as the Titans Tight Ends Coach from 2016 through 2018, before being promoted to Offensive Coordinator.
Before coaching with the Titans, he also worked with the North Carolina Tar Heels, Washington Redskins, and the Ole Miss Rebels.
