Mike Sullivan

Assistant Offensive Line


Mike Sullivan is in his 21st year as an NFL coach and his 10th season with the Titans. He has worked with the Titans offensive line since joining the club in 2014. Having played the position for a number of years within the NFL, Sullivan brings experience and insight to his position.  

In 2022, the Titans offensive line unit was forced to use six different starting combinations. Three members of the line recorded career highs in starts: Aaron Brewer (17), Dennis Daley (15) and rookie Nicholas Petit-Frere (16). Petit-Frere, a third-round pick, became the fourth offensive lineman in the franchise's "Titans era" (1999–present) to start at least 16 games as a rookie, while veteran center Ben Jones was named to his first Pro Bowl. The line helped Derrick Henry finish second in the NFL with 1,538 rushing yards. 

In 2021, injuries forced the Titans use seven different starting offensive line combinations and five different starters at left tackle. However, the offense managed to finish fifth in rushing, averaging 141.4 rushing yards per game. Left guard Rodger Saffold III was named to his first career Pro Bowl.  

In 2020, while using three different starting left tackles, the Titans had the NFL's second-ranked rushing offense (168.1 yards per game), and the unit's 25 sacks allowed was the sixth-best number in the league. Three of the team's regulars on the offensive line by the end of the season established new career highs in starts: right tackle Dennis Kelly (16), left tackle David Quessenberry (six) and right guard Nate Davis (16). The unit helped Henry lead the NFL in rushing (2,027 yards) for the second consecutive year and record the fifth-highest single-season rushing total in NFL history.  

In 2019, the Titans offense finished third in the NFL in rushing (138.9 yards per game) with Henry leading the league in rushing (1,540 yards). The offensive line protected NFL Comeback Player of the Year Ryan Tannehill as the veteran quarterback led the NFL with a 117.5 passer rating. As a third-round rookie, Davis started 15 consecutive games (including playoffs) at right guard.
