After back-to-back below .500 seasons, the Titans fired Vrabel early Tuesday afternoon. Owner Amy Adams Strunk wanted a “fresh perspective” at the head coaching position, leading to her decision to move on from Vrabel.
Hired in 2018, Vrabel went 54-45 as the head coach of the Titans. Vrabel and the Titans made three-straight playoff appearances from 2019-2021.
In 2019, the Titans upset the top-seeded Baltimore Ravens in the Divisional Round to reach the AFC Championship Game, where they fell to the eventual Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs.
Considered one of the best coaches in the NFL, Vrabel will likely be hired by another team this offseason.

With Vrabel out of Tennessee, who will become the next head coach of the Titans?
BetOnline lists Baltimore Ravens defensive coordinator Mike Mike Macdonald (+300) as the favorite to become the next Titans head coach. The Ravens finished as the number one scoring defense (16.5 points/game) under Macdonald this past season. If hired, Macdonald would become the youngest head coach in the NFL.
New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick (+400) has the second lowest odds behind Macdonald. Belichick remains under contract in New England. However, Belichick and the Patriots could agree to separate in the coming weeks if both parties want a fresh start.
Other names on the odds list Texans offensive coordinator Bobby Slowik (+500), Detroit Lions offensive coordinator Ben Johnson (+600), and Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh (+700) round out the list of top candidates.
