Titans name Munchak head coach, but is this really change?

Today, the Tennessee Titans officially promoted Mike Munchak from offensive line coach to head coach. His hiring was not a big surprise because his name was one of the first mentioned after the Titans and former head coach Jeff Fisher parted ways.

However, the big question is whether or not he is the right person for the job. When Fisher left, team officials made remarks that sometimes change is needed so everybody involved can have a fresh start. My question is: Is this genuine change?

Munchak had been offensive line coach with the Titans since 1997 and has been with the organization approximately 30 years, going back to his days as a player. Can a person with such deep roots in the organization really be considered an agent of change?

That question will likely be answered by how he handles assembling his staff. If the Titans really want new blood, more changes must take place on the staff. If this does not happen, next season's team will look very similar to what we saw in 2010.

Of course, this will all be answered in the coming weeks.

The Nightly Daily wishes Munchak success and many wins in the future.

Reportedly, Munchak fired offensive coordinator Mike Heimerdinger today. Looks like the re-making of the staff is under way.

Ive got a good feeling about Munchak. Jeff Fisher was also an unknown when he was hired.
