No meeting currently scheduled with Munchak and president/CEO Tommy Smith but one’s expected next week #Titans

This is good news for everyone who’s been calling for Mike Munchak‘s head.
The Tennessee Titans head coach has been far from spectacular this year, and fans have been asking for his resignation for weeks. Now, rumors are swirling that Munchak is considering the head coaching job at Penn State (although he’s denied these claims)—mind you, he hasn’t even been fired from his NFL team yet.
CEO Tommy Smith has been supportive of Munchak, even during his darkest hours this year. However, this tweet from Wyatt indicates that the two will likely meet next week to discuss his future with the Titans. No matter how you slice it, the elephant in the room needs to be addressed.
So what will happen to Munchak?
It could go either way. Many experts around the league (and fans alike) believe that he’s out, but it wouldn’t be surprising if Smith chooses to retain him after showing loyalty toward Munchak earlier in the season. One could also argue that Munchak hasn’t received a chance to prove himself yet due to injuries to key players—specifically quarterback Jake Locker.
Only time will tell, but those who support Munchak may want to relish the Titans’ last matchup of the season against Houston. It may be Munchak’s last appearance as the head coach of Tennessee.
