Giants' defensive coordinator Perry Fewell's name is being bandied about for yet another head coaching position. This time, it's with the Tennessee Titans.
Fewell is one of five candidates according to Jason LaCanfora of NFL.com. Current Titans OC Mike Heimerdinger and OL coach Mike Munchak have alrady been interviewed. Falcons' OC Mike Mularkey and Saints' DC Gregg Williams are the others reported to be on the Titans' short list.
Tennessee let Jeff Fisher walk last week after a 16-year run that included six playoff appearances and a trip to the Super Bowl after the 1999 season.
Fewell's chances here are slim. He appears to be in the mix only to satisfy the Rooney Rule. Of the five, Munchak and Mularkey seem to have the best shot.
Heimerdinger is being treated for cancer and Williams has had more success as a coordinator in his career.
Munchak is a said to be a favorite of owner Bud Adams. He was a staple on the offensive line for the Titans from 1982-1993, when the team was still in Houston. Munchak was a nine-time Pro Bowler, and was named to the NFL's 1980's All-Decade team. His uniform number 63 has been retired by the team. In 2001, Munchak was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Mularkey is a highly-regarded offensive mind and teamed with Heimerdinger could re-ignite a stale Titans' offense.
