Chargers OC Whisenhunt Named Titans Head Coach

The Chargers’ improbable playoff run has already proved beneficial for one assistant coach.

Offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt was officially named head coach of the Tennessee Titans on Monday.

He was expected to get one of the NFL’s vacant coaching gigs, also interviewing with the Lions and Browns last week, in addition to the Titans. He had been thought to be the leading candidate take over in Detroit.

The Chargers saw their season end Sunday with a 24-17  loss to the Denver Broncos. This was the first year for Whisenhunt on the Chargers staff.

He becomes the 17th head coach in Titans franchise history, which goes back to their days as the Houston Oilers.

Whisenhunt was the head coach of the Arizona Cardinals from 2007 to 2012. His record was 45-51.   But the Cardinals were 4-2 in the playoffs, including a trip to Super Bowl XLIII, where they lost to the Steelers.
