The Tennessee Titans will interview former Dallas Cowboys receivers coach Ray Sherman for their head coaching vacancy, ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reports.
The Titans fired Jeff Fisher late last week, with longtime offensive line coach Mike Munchak the presumptive favorite to replace him. Titans linebackers coach Dave McGinnis and offensive coordinator Mike Heimerdinger are also expected to interview for the position.
Sherman, who is African-American, would satisfy the Titans’ requirement to interview a minority candidate before hiring a head coach.
After four seasons in Dallas, Sherman interviewed for the Cowboys’ head coaching job that went to interim head coach Jason Garrett. Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean reports that Sherman hasn’t heard from the Titans, but hopes to.
Sherman has ties to the Houston Oilers/Tennessee Titans franchise, which gave him his first NFL coaching opportunity in 1988. Tennessee has an opening on the coaching staff for Sherman, as receivers coach Fred Graves has left the team to accept the same position with the Carolina Panthers.
