SF taking a second swipe at the "innovative yet abrasive big name collegiate coach" because... it worked out so well the first time? :gone:

They're kind of at ground zero. The cupboard is already bare and the only thing they have to hold onto is the possibility that their system QB can regain his form in a system designed around his abilities.

To me, its kind of a 'why not' moment for them.

I don't know how much "fixing" he'll do. I guess he's not calling the plays though as he's just the secondary coach, so maybe that's a better fit for him.

Remember how great that was going to be, between him and the guy he hired to be our DC who was also a secondary guru? :rofl:

Worked well for Lovie after that too.

:flamed:

Titans announce hiring of Mike Mularkey as head coach
The signs were pointing toward Mike Mularkey dropping the interim part of his interim head coach title in Tennessee since the end of the season and the Titans confirmed it on Saturday.

The team announced that Mularkey has been hired as the team’s permanent head coach after formally interviewing for the job on Friday. The team also interviewed Doug Marrone, Teryl Austin and their defensive coordinator Ray Horton for the position after hiring Jon Robinson as their new General Manager earlier in the week.
What is wrong with these owners? How do people who manage to make it to the level of buying an NFL team do so horribly when it comes to hiring a coach? They trust an incompetent GM? They just don't really care?

See you in 2 or 3 years when they're hiring someone who might work out. :shock:

What is weird is how some of these idiots get chance after chance, but Brad Childress, who nearly got to the Super Bowl by building his team, has not even been interviewed for a HC job. Not that I am advocating him in any way, but honestly, if I had only Childress and Mularkey to choose from, I would probably sell my team (joke)... I would probably choose Childress.

Since we signed White to a future contract looks like Robison could be the odd man out.
I was reading White and Captain previously played together and was a decent tandem.

Frazier could maybe pick Robison up. :whistle:

Anyone else have a hearty laugh at the Seahag's missed FG?

I don't know about cynical, but I'm fairly skeptical that forcing interviews will generate women getting hired for those positions. Maybe.
-
On a sidenote I just caught a PBS interview about a book(A Broad Influence) that follows the effects of women in the politcal environment. The author was describing a phenomenon of when a work environment has 2-3 females only, they do not tend to work well together and treat eachother in very adverserial fashion, threatened by one another. When it was 4 or more they were much more tolerant and sisterly at work.
I'd assume that if roles were reversed and women dominated the workplace, men would probably behave in similar fashion to one another?
Kinda interesting...and weird.
