I asked that same question a while back when the Young vs. Fischer choice was being pondered. I got no response.

Personally, I would love to bring him in as a Defensive Consultant/ Special Assistant for a year and let's get this defense absolutely rocking. Oh, and by the way, it is now officially open season on any Titan players that we want in Free Agency.

I don't see Fisher going back to less than a HC role. He can easily sit out a season and then next year he'll be highly sought after.

As for the free agents, the only thing that's official is that there is no free agency until a new CBA is signed.

So with Fisher gone now two questions come to mind. The first, who will be the next coach since some of the hot choices are gone and the Titans are coming to the dance a bit late? And, does Vince Young stick around?

I'm guessing they have someone internal in mind given the timing of this move. Young has a much better chance to stick around now, that said he probably needs a fresh start anyways.

I'm hearing that they are going to offer the HC to the OL coach, Munchak, might be off on the spelling, not quite sure if he will accept it or not. The Vince Young drama I believe we haven't heard the end of that story yet and it will continue for awhile.

Young needs a new place. Just because Fisher is gone doesn't mean the rest don't feel the same way.

Bud Adams loves Young and he is still under contract and Adams might not want to swallow all that money. I agree, Young needs new scenery but it wouldn't surprise me if he stays with the Titans.

Fischer legitimately soudns like he is happy to sit ou a season and recharge. Apparently part of the issue is he wanted his son on the staff (after he helped out last season when 1 of the Coaches was out sick) but Adams wont let family be on staff (kinda understandable). Sounds to me more like Fischer walked.. even with it being late in the game, more than that he was asked to leave. He will be fine and will assuredly get a great gig next year.

And I bet they keep Young, but agree that it is a mistake. And yes, it is open season on their FAs.

Why not let family members on staff? I mean, it worked so well with Rod and his son-in-law.

Did the minority interviewing thing die? I haven't seen anyone actually take the time to do a broad search.

Steensn, everyone still interviews some token black guy to satisfy the requirement, but it's usually someone nobody's ever heard of. The entire thing is a sham and ought to be done away with. There are plenty of black coaches who can get head coaching opportunities without relying upon the current system. If they deserve it, they'll get it.

I just don't like that it uses black people now instead of when one gets an interview it is serious.

I think the Rooney rule makes sense. If you look at a situation like the Browns, it's clearly not a meritocracy--it's about guys bringing their old buddies in. So I think you need to have something to interrupt that sort of approach and give guys a shot, even if it's only for a moment.
