Dick LeBeau Won't Return as Titans Defensive Coordinator, Could Retire

The first person that Robinson interviewed was Vrabel whom he knew from when he was with the Patriots personnel department.

This would be a particularly tough time for the Buckeyes to lose Day, as they will have three relatively inexperienced quarterbacks in Dwayne Haskins, Joe Burrow, and Tate Martell battling for the starting job in 2018.

Day, a former Manchester Central and UNH star quarterback, is now reportedly considering the offensive coordinator job with the Tennessee Titans, according to a report from ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Day is a Kelly pupil, well versed in his offense, one that suits Mariota's skill set to a T. Day was a tight ends coach at UNH in 2002 while Kelly was the offensive coordinator. That starts with hiring a new, creative offensive coordinator that can build around the young talent in Tennessee and maximize their potential. Generally speaking, the linebackers he coached became much better players on his watch.

Technically, he is the 19th head coach hired in franchise history, when you count the Houston Oilers. Fichtner spent three seasons as wide receivers coach before becoming the quarterbacks coach in 2010, where he developed a close rapport with Ben Roethlisberger.

DeFilippo is actually a hot head coaching candidate, but there's no guarantee he'll land a National Football League gig. But I said that that will be the most critical relationship in the building.

Eli Manning might not be done in New York City after all. The front office will likely use the draft and free agency to add pieces to both sides of the ball to construct a team that could possibly contend for more than just a playoff spot in the AFC.

Sean Ryan has two decades of coaching experience. They've never worked together, and Day has been in Columbus for only one season. Taylor previously coached quarterbacks with the Dolphins from 2013-2015 and served as Miami's interim offensive coordinator in his final year with the club. Coming from the Kelly Coaching tree, Day can implement numerous spread and read option concepts to the offense that had been sorely lacking under Terry Robiskie. Marcus Mariota thrived in Kelly's fast-paced scheme at the University of OR and could have similar success under Day. Vrabel played 14 years in the National Football League with Pittsburgh, New England - where he won three Super Bowl titles - and Kansas City before going into coaching.
