Titans Interview Ray Horton for Head Coach


NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Titans on Saturday interviewed Ray Horton for the team's head coaching position.

Among the group Horton met with today included Titans controlling owner Amy Adams Strunk and Kenneth Adams IV from the ownership group, President Steve Underwood, and Jon Robinson, who was hired as the team's general manager on Thursday.

Jaguars assistant head coach-offense/offensive line coach Doug Marrone, Lions defensive coordinator Teryl Austin and Mike Mularkey, who served as interim coach for the Titans the last nine games of the 2015 season, have also interviewed for the job.

Horton served as defensive coordinator for the Titans the past two seasons. A year ago the team improved to 12th overall in total defense after finishing 27th overall in total defense in 2014. The Titans finished seventh overall against the pass in 2015, and 25th vs the run. The team was sixth in the NFL in sacks per play.

Horton has 22 years of experience in the National Football League. He joined the Titans after previously serving as defensive coordinator with the Browns (2013) and Cardinals (2011-12). Horton has also spent time with the Steelers (2004-10), Lions (2002-03), Bengals (1997-2001) and Redskins (1994-96).

Mularkey took over as interim coach for the Titans in November after the team parted ways with head coach Ken Whisenhunt.
