NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A person familiar with the decision says the Tennessee Titans have hired San Diego offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt as their new head coach.
The person spoke on the condition of anonymity Monday because the Titans have not announced a decision.
The Titans flew out to San Diego on Friday and interviewed Whisenhunt, who started his coaching career in Nashville at Vanderbilt.
Whisenhunt, 51, spent six years coaching Arizona and took the Cardinals to their lone Super Bowl before being fired Dec. 31, 2012. He spent this season with San Diego helping Philip Rivers and the Chargers to the playoffs.
He was the fourth person interviewed by the Titans, who fired Mike Munchak on Jan. 4 after three seasons.
