Are the Titans planning to lowball their new coach? It certainly seems that way if you read this Titans Insider piece in which Terry McCormick writes that the new Tennessee coach should expect to be paid about $2.5 million a season.
Considering Jeff Fisher would have made about $6.5 million per year, this newest figure doesn’t sound quite so special.
Unless former Bills head coach Mike Mularkey wins the job, the rest of the candidates (Titans OL coach Mike Munchak, Tiatans offensive coordinator Mike Heimerdinger and Giants defensive coordinator Perry Fewell) would be first-time head coaches.
Thus, it makes sense that owner Bud Adams could get away with paying them much less than Fisher and why former coaches like Bill Cowher and Jon Gruden were never in consideration for the Titans job.
