NEW YORK The Tennessee Titans have hired their offensive line coach Mike Munchak as head coach to replace Jeff Fisher, the NFL club announced Monday.
Fisher parted ways with the Oilers last month after 17 seasons in charge on the field.
It is the first head coaching job for Munchak, who served as the Oilers' offensive line coach for 14 years after an outstanding 12-year playing career as a guard for the team.
Munchak earned nine Pro Bowl invitations in his career and was inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame in 2001.
