Ran Carthon

Executive Vice President/General Manager


Ran Carthon was hired by the Titans as the 14th general manager in franchise history on Jan. 18, 2023.

In 2024, Carthon was promoted to executive vice president/general manager. His duties expanded to include all areas that impact the football team: roster control, team activities and personnel decisions including draft and free agency acquisitions, oversight of head coach Brian Callahan and his coaching staff, scouting, sports medicine, and player engagement.

"Over the past year, Ran has impressed me and our staff with his innovative approach to roster building," said Titans controlling owner Amy Adams Strunk upon Carthon's promotion in 2024. "Ran's exceptional reputation around the league as a talent evaluator and culture builder was a clear competitive advantage during last year's free agency and draft process, as well as our recent search for a head coach. Simply put, Ran Carthon makes the Tennessee Titans a destination for the league's top talent. By expanding his role to include full roster control and oversight of the coaching staff, our organization will now benefit more completely from Ran's unique ability to build and lead a championship-caliber football team."

In his first year with the Titans, Carthon re-worked the roster with several veteran additions who would become key starters for the team, including wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, outside linebacker Arden Key, linebacker Azeez Al-Shaair, cornerback Sean Murphy-Bunting and offensive lineman Daniel Brunskill in free agency. In his first draft, offensive lineman Peter Skoronski, quarterback Will Levis and running back Tyjae Spears were selected in the first three rounds, respectively. Carthon also used a trade to acquire kicker Nick Folk.
