The Tennessee Titans have fired Mike Munchak after three seasons as head coach and 31 years combined with this franchise as a player and coach, the team has confirmed. General manager Ruston Webster says in a statement that the last week was a difficult time trying to figure out how to move the Titans forward. The general manager says tough choices resulted in the decision to go on without Munchak. Munchak flew to Texas yesterday morning to meet with team president Tommy Smith and Webster. The coach had a season left on his contract. He was 22-26 since being hired Feb. 7, 2011. (More Mike Munchak stories.)
