On January 20, 2018, Mike Vrabel was hired as the 19th head coach of the Tennessee Titans. In his five years as head coach of the Titans, Vrabel has led the team to the playoffs three times. He joined Jack Pardee and Jerry Glanville as the only head coaches in team annals to preside over at least three playoff squads in their initial four season as head coach, and he tied Pardee (43-26) for the most total wins by a head coach in his first four seasons with the organization. The Titans won back-to-back AFC South titles in 2020 and 2021, marking the first time the organization accomplished the feat since the Oilers won the first three AFL Eastern division titles from 1960 to 1962.
Vrabel received one of the NFL’s highest honors when he was named the Associated Press NFL Coach of the Year after directing the Titans to a 12-5 regular-season record in 2021. The Titans won the AFC South, and they claimed the top seed in the AFC playoff field for the first time since 2008. They did so despite needing to use 91 total players during the season—the most in NFL history in a non-strike year.
During his fourteen year NFL career, Vrabel played for the Pittsburgh Steelers, New England Patriots and Kansas City Chiefs. He helped New England win three Super Bowl Championships with his superior defensive skills and his ability to help the offense convert on goal-line situations. Vrabel was a defensive standout at Ohio State, appearing in every game over his four-year tenure, was a First Team All-American and earned two Big Ten Defensive Lineman of Year awards.
