Today the Tennessee Titans landed Ken Whisenhunt as their next head coach, and both their CEO and GM released a statement about their thoughts on Whisenhunt. It honestly seems like the Titans have found their guy.
Titans president and CEO Tommy Smith:
“This is a big day for this franchise. Ken is a well-respected coach in this league and I am looking forward to seeing his vision become reality for this team. He has a history of building successful offenses and took Arizona to a Super Bowl as a head coach. We all share a common goal for this team and that is to build a consistent winner. I want to thank Ruston for his hard work in the process and the quality candidates that he brought in for interviews.”
Titans General Manager Ruston Webster:
“I have a lot of respect for Ken as a coach and as an offensive mind. The traits that stand out to me when identifying him as our next coach — he is intelligent, has a track record with quality offenses and head coaching success. I really enjoyed our meeting on Friday night in San Diego and we share similar philosophies about the game. Additionally, we have several mutual colleagues that have spoken highly to me about Ken both as a coach and as a person. I am excited about Ken joining us and the future of the Titans.”
