Mike Vrabel had his ups and downs in six seasons as head coach of the Tennessee Titans, but the downs were more prevalent over the last two seasons, and the sides parted ways following a 6-11 season. 

Vrabel had four straight winning campaigns with the Titans, but in the last two years, the team finished just 13-21. Bookies.com veteran oddsmaker Adam Thompson established and has now updated NFL odds as to the Titans’ next head coach.

The Titans’ offense ranked bottom-five in both points scored and yards gained, and the defense finished in the bottom half in both key metrics, too. There is much work to be done in Nashville. 

They presumably do have their QB of the future with Will Levis, and the Titans currently have the second-most cap space to work with this off-season.

Who Will Replace Mike Vrabel As Titans HC?

Someone to lead a struggling offense may be the first key to putting those minds atop the list. Lions OC Ben Johnson, OC Brian Callahan of the Bengals, OC Mike Kafka of the Giants, and Bobby Slowik of the Texans have all received interview requests. 

Thomas Brown, OC of the Carolina Panthers, is a bit of a surprise dark horse in the race. The Panthers were record-settingly bad on offense, but the Titans are reportedly bringing Brown in for a second interview. It's not believed he's talked to any other team for a head job, including his own. 

Johnson and Callahan are two of the hottest names on the coaching carousel. The fact that emerging QB Levis is already on the team means the Titans can focus on other issues at hand, perhaps making Tennessee a coveted destination. 

Strong defensive minds have been trending upward, with Ravens defensive coordinator Mike Macdonald atop most teams’ lists. Successful Cowboys DC and former Falcons head coach Dan Quinn can count the Titans as one of several teams he's in contention of taking over. 

While Vrabel was overall successful in Tennessee and is considered a top coaching mind, he reportedly didn't mesh with the vision of management and ownership. That leads us to believe one of the brighter, younger minds has the edge in this search. 

All of the aforementioned coaches are under the age of 40. 

Then there’s Bill Belichick, 71, who was born in Nashville (though he did most of his growing up in Maryland). He seems destined for other spots but is part of The Field, including other more sought-after head coaches such as Eagles OC Brian Johnson, Dolphins OC Frank Smith, and up-and-coming DC Aaron Glenn.
