Mike Vrabel heads into his third season with the Titans after being named head coach on Jan. 20, 2018. He became the 19th head coach in franchise history.
Last year, Vrabel led the franchise to the AFC Championship game for the first time since 2002, after posting his second consecutive 9-7 mark in the regular season. His 20 wins over the first two seasons are the second highest in franchise history (Jack Pardee, 21 wins) and he became the first head coach to win multiple playoff games within the first two years. The 2019 Titans became just the third team since 1990 to start the season 2-4 or worse and reach the Championship Game (2002, Titans and 1996, Jacksonville). Last year’s team ranked in the NFL’s top 10 in scoring margin (eighth, +71), turnover margin (sixth, +6), offensive yards per play (fourth, 6.12), rushing offense (third, 138.9 yards per game), red-zone efficiency (first, 75.6 percent), total touchdowns (tied for third, 54) and third-down defense (eight, 36.3 percent). Individually, Derrick Henry led the NFL in rushing, Ryan Tannehill was the league’s highest rated passer and A.J. Brown was the NFL’s leading rookie receiver.
