Comments from Whisenhunt, Mularkey

By Paul Kuharsky

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- We've already shared thoughts on Mike Mularkey joining Ken Whisenhunt's staff as the Tennessee Titans' tight ends coach.

The Titans announced the addition to Whisenhunt's staff officially this afternoon.

Here are the comments from the release:

Whisenhunt: “Mike brings a wealth of experience, both as a coordinator and a head coach. Selfishly, for me, he brings a lot to the table, having been in this situation before. There are things that I will use him for moving forward that will help us a team. He has had a lot of success in this league and we are lucky to have him.”

Mularkey: “I am excited to back in the league. I took some time off for family time. I got a chance to do some things with them, which I haven’t gotten to do over the last 20 years of coaching. I am definitely excited to get back and excited to get back with Ken. We go way back in our relationship, back to when we were players in the NFL and even to college when he was at Georgia Tech and I was at Florida. We have been friends for a long time and we had an opportunity to work together in Pittsburgh and had some success there and hopefully I will help him have success here in Nashville. As a coach I am diligent about the details of every little thing. I am very big into making sure my guys are prepared and I really like them to know what is going to happen before it happens. With my background and knowledge as a player and coach, I can be a resource. I do love what I do and they will see that from me.”
