Tennessee Titans Wish to Talk About NFL’s Best Offense


If the Tennessee Titans resolve to do something different with their offense, one possibility is now clear.

They could attempt to do what the Kansas City Chiefs do.

The Titans have requested permission to interview Kansas City’s offensive coordinator, Eric Bieniemy, and senior assistant/quarterbacks coach Matt Nagy, in line with a report by ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler on Sunday morning.

Tennessee is in the hunt for an offensive coordinator to interchange Todd Downing, who was fired two days after the top of the regular season.

That is the third time in five years head coach Mike Vrabel has needed to fill that position. In 2019, he promoted tight ends coach Arthur Smith when Matt LaFleur left to grow to be head coach at Green Bay. In 2021, he promoted Downing from tight ends coach when Smith left to grow to be head coach of the Atlanta Falcons.

The Chiefs were the NFL’s highest scoring team this season and have finished among the many top six in points each of the last six seasons. Likewise, they led the league in total yards in 2022 and have finished among the many top six in that category each of the last six years.

Tennessee finished twenty eighth in scoring and thirtieth in yards in 2022 as Downing handled injuries to the offensive line, used three different starting quarterbacks and employed one in every of the league’s least productive wide receiver groups.

Nagy was Kansas City’s offensive coordinator in 2017 after 4 seasons as quarterbacks coach. He was named head coach of the Chicago Bears in 2018 and held that position for 4 years. He returned to the Chiefs this season after he was fired following his first losing season with the Bears (6-11 in 2021).

Bieniemy was promoted from running backs coach in 2018 when Nagy left and has been the offensive coordinator since. Almost every 12 months since he has been considered a head coach candidate, and last week he interviewed with the Indianapolis Colts in that team’s search to interchange Frank Reich.
