BREAKING: Titans Hire Mularkey as Head Coach, Patriots to Retain Josh McDaniels, Matt Patricia

New, comments

ESPN's Adam Schefter dropped the news right before halftime that the Tennessee Titans will be keeping intermin head coach Mike Mularkey on in an official capacity. This means that all head coaching positions are filled and that the New England Patriots will keep offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels and defensive coordinator Matt Patricia for one more season.

This is the list of head coaching roles filled thus far:

Titans: Titans interim head coach Mike Mularkey

Dolphins: Former Bears offensive coordinator Adam Gase

Browns: Former Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson

Buccaneers: Buccaneers offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter

49ers: Former Eagles head coach Chip Kelly

Giants: Giants offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo

Eagles: Former Chiefs offensive coordinator Doug Pederson

The following roles were in question, but ultimately retained by the incumbent head coach:

Colts: Head coach Chuck Pagano

Chargers: Head coach Mike McCoy

Lions: Head coach Jim Caldwell

It's wild that every team was willing to overlook McDaniels, but that's their loss and the Patriots' gain. New England will move forward with fantastic consistency in the coaching ranks.
