Mike Munchak essentially fired himself when he decided not to meet the conditions set forth for him to continue by management, says Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean. Indications are Munchak would have had to fire at least six assistants.

To which I say: One of them was offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains, and I believe Loggains amounted to a line-in-the-sand guy for Munchak.

General manager Ruston Webster characterized the Munchak years as a “pretty major transition” period, moving away from long-time coach Jeff Fisher and ending Bud Adams’ ownership, says David Climer of The Tennessean. “Here’s hoping the next transitional phases is better than the last.”

Running through some potential Munchak replacements with John Glennon of The Tennessean.

Titans players were surprised by the move, says Glennon. Said safety Michael Griffin of the future: “Nobody’s safe because you don’t know what they want and what they see and don’t like. It puts you in a situation of uncertainty and unknown.”

Webster said that Munchak made the Titans better overall, says David Boclair of the Nashville Post.

Munchak’s history with the Oilers and Titans, from The Tennessean.

If you coached a team that lost to the Jaguars in 2013, you got fired, says John Breech of CBS Sports.

Jurrell Casey was the Titans’ defensive MVP, says Tom Gower of Total Titans.
