If the Titans decide to move on from offensive coordinator Arthur Smith this season, who in the NFL might they look at to replace him?
When fans see the Tennessee Titans take the field for their 2020 season, there’s a strong chance that they will once again be seeing a new face at offensive coordinator.
The seemingly never-ending revolving door known as the Titans’ offensive staff appears as though it will keep spinning for at least one more offseason. Current Titans offensive coordinator Arthur Smith has failed to get the Tennessee offense where it needs to be to compete and will probably be removed from the position by season’s end.
After overseeing an offense that placed 26th in the NFL in yards and points per game through nine weeks, it has become blindingly apparent that Smith is not cut out for the position of coordinator. So if not Smith, who comes next for Tennessee?
The exercise of window shopping for offensive coordinators has become as routine to Titans fans as 9-7 seasons. Over the last 10 seasons, Tennessee has had seven different coaches coordinating the offense. But with a stacked group of young receivers and a strong, playmaking running back like Derrick Henry, the right offensive coordinator could turn the Titans offense into one of the NFL’s best.
There are a few coaches and coordinators around the NFL that may be in the market for a promotion, and if the Titans can persuade any of them to join the team, they could transform the franchise into a consistent playoff contender.
Here are four of the people that the Titans should consider offering their offensive coordinator position, should it become available next season.
