Titans: Final decision hasn't been made on Munchak's future

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

A final decision on the future of Titans head coach Mike Munchak has not yet been made, the team said in a press release Friday evening.

Titans President/CEO Tommy Smith said in a statement: "I said all along that we would review every aspect of the football operations at the conclusion of the season - in early January. Today I sat down with Ruston and Mike and we discussed every coach and player on the roster. We had good discussions, but no final decisions were made."

And Titans GM Ruston Webster said in a statement: "The three of us (Webster, Smith, Mike Munchak) met all day today in Houston. We had a good conversation in regards to the team and moving forward. Nothing final has been decided at this point, but we hope to have a decision soon."

Channel 4 Sports Director Rudy Kalis said a source close to the team confirmed Munchak would return for the 2014 season. Tennessean sports writer Jim Wyatt also had sources tell him Munchak would be head coach in 2014.

Munchak and General Manager Ruston Webster flew to Houston on Friday for a meeting with CEO Tommy Smith to discuss the future of the franchise.

Smith became the team's CEO after the death of Bud Adams, Smith's father-in-law.

The Titans finished the 2013 season with a 7-9 record, a one-win improvement over 2012. Munchak was named head coach of the Titans in 2011 after serving as the team's offensive line coach. Munchak was a Hall-of-Fame lineman for the Houston Oilers.

Munchak's career record is 22-26 and 6-12 against AFC South opponents.

Before the 2013 season, Adams mandated a "playoffs or bust" attitude with Munchak, spending more than $100 million on free agents.

The 7-9 record this season included five straight home losses, the most since the team moved to Tennessee.

Adams moved the team to Tennessee in 1997, playing one season in Memphis, the 1998 season at Vanderbilt before the completion of LP Field for the 1999 season.
