The transition in Nashville is officially complete!

After the surprise firing of head coach Mike Vrabel, the Tennessee Titans have brought in their next leader, naming former Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Brian Callahan to the position, according to a Monday report from NFL Network.

It’s being reported that a second interview was held earlier in the day with Callahan, after which the Titans wanted to lock him up for the job.

And that’s exactly what they did. (RELATED: God Is Good: John Harbaugh Says That ‘Faith’ Is The Reason Why His Ravens Are One Win Away From The Super Bowl)

Brian, 39, is the son of Bill Callahan, a former head coach of the Raiders. Since 2010, he’s been working in the NFL, starting his career as a Denver Broncos coaching assistant. He eventually worked his way up to become the team’s offensive assistant in 2013 and left the organization after the 2015 campaign.

Callahan was the quarterbacks coach for the Detroit Lions in 2016 and 2017, then left for the Las Vegas Raiders to be their quarterbacks coach during the 2018 season. He then landed with the Cincinnati Bengals as their offensive coordinator for 2019 and helped propel the team to the Super Bowl by leading a power offensive unit that included superstars such as Joe Burrow, Ja’Marr Chase, Tee Higgins and Joe Mixon.

Now he hopes to bring that success to the Tennessee Titans.

I’m not really the biggest fan of this move. It’s cool to see the son of a former coach follow in his father’s footsteps, but I personally would have kept Mike Vrabel if I were the Titans.

Oh well. Whatever floats their boat … just don’t get mad when you continue your losing ways, Titans … which is exactly what I see happening.

What could have been with a “Mike Vrabel x Will Levis” connection…
