Titans fire Ken Whisenhunt; Mike Mularkey takes over as interim coach

titansJust 23 games into his tenure as head coach, Whisenhunt was informed on Tuesday morning the organization wants to go in a different direction. Mike Mularkey, who served as assistant head coach/tight ends under Whisenhunt, will take over as interim coach.

The final decision came just two days after the Titans lost their sixth straight game, in Houston, where the team’s ownership group watched from the visiting owner’s suite at NRG Stadium.

“After thoughtful consideration, the decision has been made to relieve Ken Whisenhunt of his head coaching duties,” said Titans controlling owner Amy Adams Strunk. “We have expected more progress on the field, and I felt it was time to move in a different direction. I would like to thank Ken for his efforts with our team, as he worked very hard to try to move us forward.”

Whisenhunt was 3-20 as the head coach of the Titans since he took over in January of 2014.

The last time the @Titans hired an interim coach during the season: Jeff Fisher, in 1994.
