Tennessee Titans reporter Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean has said that KAMC in Lubbock, Texas reported on DC Jerry Gray having interviewed for the head coach vacancy at Texas Tech. Wyatt later updated the article:
UPDATE: Texas Tech hired Kinsbury as the school’s new head coach on Wednesday.
Gray’s line as Titans DC is definitely in question with the Titans ranking 27th in the NFL in defense, but the general consensus seems to be in favor of him keeping his job in Tennessee.
The fact that Gray has interviewed outside of the organization may make the Titans think twice about keeping Gray around. It at least makes you curious. A guy who’s looking at jobs outside of the organization doesn’t give the appearance of someone who’s dedicated to it. Looking at it from the other side though, with your head possibly being on a chopping block, who wouldn’t be interested in another job?
It’ll no doubt be an interesting off-season for the Titans, who’ve already fired OC Chris Palmer and are testing out QB’s coach Dowell Loggains for the job. I’d like to blame Jim Schwartz for this. Ever since he left, the Titans have been on a downhill slope, forever looking forward to next year.
But, there’s always next year, right? (Cue laughter)
