A Long and Winding Road
The Titans opted to keep Mike Mularkey as head coach after he replaced Ken Whisenhunt seven games into last season; in spite of the fact Mularkey finished 2-7 at the helm. Whether you consider the hire a good one largely comes down to whether your an optimist or a pessimist. The optimist would characterize Mularkey as a well traveled veteran coach with prior head coaching experience, and multiple Top 10 offensive seasons under his belt. The pessimist would point to a man who's failed twice before as an NFL head coach (2 years in Buffalo, one-and-done in Jacksonville), and had his offensive coordinator duties removed at another stop (Miami). Just as their are two sides to every story, Mularkey's career is truly an amalgamation of the good and the (sometimes really) bad.
