Most teams fire coaches the day after the NFL regular season ends for a pretty simple reason: Other teams are doing the same, and they don't want to waste any time and miss out on the best candidates in their search.
The Tennessee Titans apparently don't believe in that theory.
The Titans fired Mike Munchak on Saturday, according to numerous reports. That's not too surprising, given that Munchak was 22-26 in three seasons, and coming off two losing seasons in a row. Tennessee went 7-9 this season. But the timing is peculiar.
