Titans hire Mike Vrabel as new coach after quick search

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Tennessee Titans have hired Houston defensive coordinator Mike Vrabel as their new coach in a fast search that wrapped up after three interviews and just five days after firing Mike Mularkey.
    
The Titans announced Saturday they have agreed to terms with Vrabel. A news conference is scheduled for Monday at the Saint Thomas Sports Park.
    
Vrabel was the first person Tennessee interviewed after firing Mularkey on Monday. Mularkey went 21-22 and led the franchise to its first playoff victory in 14 years.
    
Tennessee also interviewed Carolina defensive coordinator Steve Wilks - who satisfied the Rooney rule requiring teams to interview at least one minority candidate - and Los Angeles Rams offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur.
    
Titans owner Amy Adams Strunk says in a statement it was easy to see Vrabel's commanding presence and relationship with general manager Jon Robinson.
