The Tennessee Titans are preparing to tackle the 2024 season without head coach Mike Vrabel.

The team today announced the firing of Vrabel, the third winningest coach in franchise history, after six seasons. The decision comes after Sunday’s regular season finale win against the Jacksonville Jaguars, which resulted in a 6-11 season record.

While there’s no word on who will replace Vrabel, Titans owner Amy Adams Strunk said the following, in part, about the current state of the team.

“Our vision is not simply to produce more wins than losses, it is to regularly compete for championships. While this season was disappointing, I see early signs of progress taking shape. Last year we added a promising young quarterback and several other talented players to our roster. With a coaching search, enviable cap space, and top-10 draft position, this offseason is as important as any in our history.”

Vrabel’s contributions

A lot can happen in six seasons, including some of these key highlights during Vrabel’s tenure.

  • Three playoff appearances
  • Two AFC South division titles
  • AFC Championship Game appearance
  • 2021 NFL Coach of the Year award

Riding highs from 2019 to 2021, the team fell into a valley during Vrabel’s final two seasons, with this year marking the team’s worst record since 2015.
