The Tennessee Titans believe the potential reward from quarterback Marcus Mariota working with his third head coach in his fourth NFL season outweighs the risk of change.

Or sticking with the same coach.

So now the Titans are looking for a new coach to replace Mike Mularkey and build off the franchise’s first playoff win in 14 years to make them a true NFL contender.

”There’s nothing more that I want for our fans than to bring a championship here [url=http://www.officialpredators.com/authentic-adidas-roman-josi-jersey]Roman Josi Jersey[/url] ,” general manager Jon Robinson said Monday afternoon . ”I feel like it’s my charge to put the team in the best position to do that.”

The Titans fired Mike Mularkey on Monday, less than 48 hours after a 35-14 loss to New England in the AFC divisional round. Mularkey revived a team with the NFL’s worst record over two seasons and led them to their first playoff victory in 14 years only to become the first coach let go after winning a playoff game since San Francisco fired Steve Mariucci after the 2002 season.

Titans controlling owner Amy Adams Strunk turned to Mularkey in November 2015 when she fired Ken Whisenhunt after 23 games . Mularkey went 2-7 down the stretch as the Titans finished 3-13 to land the No. 1 overall draft pick in 2016. That capped a 5-27 record over 2014 and 2015 that was the NFL’s worst.

Mularkey led the Titans to back-to-back 9-7 records – their first consecutive winning records since 2007-08. He finished with a 21-22 record after a season in which the Titans cost themselves the AFC South title with a three-game skid in December and needed to beat the Jaguars, now in the AFC championship game, to reach the postseason for the first time since 2008.

His devotion to an offense he’s known since being offensive coordinator in Pittsburgh between 2001 and 2003 may have cost him. He said Sunday he was prepared to move ”full speed” ahead after talking with Strunk. He defended offensive coordinator Terry Robiskie’s play-calling, saying he was happy with Mariota’s development.

Mularkey also said he didn’t anticipate any changes on his coaching staff a week after Strunk issued a statement on his job security . But talk of an extension since a 22-21 comeback win against Kansas City in the wild-card round ended Monday morning when Robinson and president and chief executive officer Steve Underwood told Mularkey he was being let go.

Strunk called it ”unfortunate” that they couldn’t find common ground on how to improve.

”I also view this as an important moment for our football team as we try to make that next step to sustained success on the field,” Strunk said in a statement.

Now Robinson will oversee his first coaching search with the Titans the seventh NFL team to change coaches since the start of the season. He was hired two days before Mularkey had the interim title removed in January 2016.

”This boils down to doing what we think is best for the football team moving forward, taking the next step,” Robinson said.

Robinson said interviews with candidates could be held as early as this week [url=http://www.officialsenators.com/authentic-adidas-mark-stone-jersey]Mark Stone Jersey[/url] , though the Titans will confirm a candidate only after an interview is completed. The general manager declined to discuss Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, saying he couldn’t comment on coaches under contract.

”This is a very attractive job for a lot of candidates,” Robinson said. ”I look forward to working with whoever the next head coach is. I think that they will see that myself and Amy will be unified with them in our vision for the football team.”

In Mularkey’s first full season, the Titans led the NFL scoring touchdowns inside the red zone, and they led the AFC while ranking third in rushing offense. Mariota also threw 26 touchdowns with only nine interceptions.

This season, the Titans failed to take advantage of an AFC South in which Andrew Luck did not play for Indianapolis and two-time defending division champ Houston lost rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson to an injury early.

Mariota also had his worst season yet with a career-worst 15 interceptions and 13 touchdowns. The run game, the basis of Mularkey’s offense, slumped to 15th in the NFL.

Robinson said the key is finding the right coach to get the best out of the Titans’ roster [url=http://www.officialpenguinsproshop.com/authentic-adidas-tom-kuhnhackl-jersey]Tom Kuhnhackl Jersey[/url] , and the general manager isn’t worried about Mariota working with yet another head coach.

”Marcus is a pretty resilient guy,” Robinson said. ”He’s a very mentally tough guy. He takes a lot from the standpoint of ownership in things. I have zero concern in Marcus being able to adapt and learn, and do what’s best to get the offense going.

The Latest on the parade for the Super Bowl-winning Philadelphia Eagles (all times local):

4 p.m.

Police are so far only reporting one act of violence after hundreds of thousands of Eagles fans hit the streets to fete their Super Bowl champion Eagles.

Police say someone was stabbed about a half-block off the parade route. No details were given and the person’s condition wasn’t revealed.

Throngs of adoring fans swarmed the city to see their champs parade up Broad Street. Overall, the crowds were buoyant and peaceful. There’s no word on any arrests.

Democratic Mayor Jim Kenney had asked fans to celebrate with passion and pride after Sunday’s wild postgame celebration was marred by small pockets of ”knuckleheads” who resorted to violence and vandalism.

The biggest problem facing parade-goers Thursday afternoon was making the trip home on mass transit. One heavily used subway station was closed about an hour after the victory rally ended due to overcrowding.



2:45 p.m.

The championship Philadelphia Eagles ended their raucous, emotional rally by giving props to their fans.

Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles and Carson Wentz thanked the roaring crowds from the ”Rocky” steps at the art museum Thursday, and Jason Kelce gave a rousing lecture on the meaning of the word underdog for Philadelphia.

It was a passionate defense of the coach and general manager and went through all the criticism they have faced over the years.

Malcolm Jenkins also hit the underdog theme: ”They doubted us as players, they doubted us as a team.”

The team descended the art museum steps to Meek Mill’s ”Dreams and Nightmares.” The incarcerated Philadelphia rapper’s song has become an anthem for the team this season.



2:25 p.m.

The Eagles have landed on the ”Rocky” steps. The parade is over but the Super Bowl victory rally is roling with the team descending the art museum steps to Meek Mill’s ”Dreams and Nightmares.” The incarcerated Philadelphia rapper’s song has become an anthem for the team this season.

Three fighter jets buzzed overhead, as trumpeter Jesse McGuire performed ”The Star Spangled Banner.”

Owner Jeffrey Lurie is telling the crowd ”Philly [url=http://www.officialpenguinsproshop.com/authentic-adidas-evgeni-malkin-jersey]Youth Evgeni Malkin Jersey[/url] , you are super bowl champions. And I have one final message for you: We are just beginning. ”

It’s the Eagles first NFL title in nearly 60 years.

Players are taking turns thanking the roaring crowd.



12:30 p.m.

The championship Philadelphia Eagles are making their way through the jubilant throngs of fans at the city’s first-ever Super Bowl parade, but don’t expect any official estimate of the crowd size.

The city has said they aren’t planning to release any crowd size estimates after Thursday’s festivities, making any number a guess as easily inflatable as a football (sorry Pats fans).

But there’s certainly a massive, roaring crowd. Easily hundreds of thousands of groupies are lining the 5-mile (8-kilometer) route from the stadium to the art museum’s ”Rocky” steps. It’s a much longer route than the Phillies had for their 2008 World Series championship parade in 2008, and more spread out than the crowds for Pope Francis’s visit in 2015.

Organizers prepared for as many as 2 million people.



11:25 a.m.

The Philadelphia Eagles are thanking the fans and sharing their championship glory as the Super Bowl parade makes its way up Broad Street, the main thoroughfare from the team’s stadium to city hall.

Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie stood atop an open-air double-decker bus along with quarterbacks Nick Foles, Carson Wentz and third-stringer Nate Sudfeld as they made their way through the throngs. Lurie held a sign reading ”Thank You Fans” and a smiling Super Bowl MVP Foles brandished the Vince Lombardi trophy. Coach Doug Pederson disembarked from the bus to show off the trophy to the thrilled crowds; other players tossed T-shirts to fans along the route.

And Jason Kelce walked along – dressed in full Mummers regalia looking somewhat like Aladdin – shaking hands with fans and leading them in chants.

Hundreds of thousands of roaring, jubilant fans are in position to cheer their heroes along the way to the art museum’s ”Rocky” steps.



11 a.m.

The Eagles have landed on Broad Street: The championship parade Philadelphia has dreamed about for decades is finally underway.

Players are cruising along the 5-mile (8-kilometer) parade route atop open-air [url=http://www.officialkings.com/authentic-adidas-alex-iafallo-jersey]http://www.officialkings.com/authentic-adidas-alex-iafallo-jersey[/url] , double-decker buses. They started off near their stadium just before 11 a.m. Thursday and winding up at the art museum’s ”Rocky” steps.

Many players are sporting their parade finest: Chris Long is donning a faux full-length fur coat over an Allen Iverson 76ers jersey. Jason Kelce is in full Mummers regalia, faintly resembling an Aladdin costume in a nod to Philadelphia’s raucous annual parade on New Year’s Day.

Hundreds of thousands of roaring, jubilant fans are in position to cheer their heroes along the way. Organizers are prepared for as many as 2 million people.



7 a.m.

All roads and rails lead to Philadelphia as fans pour into the city for the Eagles’ Super Bowl parade.

People began lining the 5-mile (8-kilometer) route before dawn Thursday. Organizers are prepared for as many as 2 million people, but the actual number may be much lower.

Many fans are taking mass transit. New Jersey Transit on Wednesday suspended ticket sales on it [url=http://www.officialusafootballs.com/buffalo-bills]Youth Buffalo Bills Jerseys[/url]
