Here is the real scuttlebutt (rumor) that you need to know.  “Bud” is not exactly pleased with the mediocrity of the Titans over the last seven seasons (54-58).  The one and only AFC Championship and Super Bowl appearance came in 1999, the first year in Nashville.  Since that time the Titans have shown moments of brilliance only to fade in the playoffs.  Jeff Fisher has tenure; his record is also mediocre (142-120) in sixteen seasons as Head Coach.  However, tenure and a winning record is not what Mr. Adams wanted when he brought Vince Young over the displeasure of Coach Fisher to the Titans.  Therefore since time is getting short for Mr. Adams to see his Titans make another trip to the Super Bowl, there is only one option, change coaches.

Here is the name that is surfacing. Lately he has been a key part of the MNF broadcast team.  His name was batted around earlier but “Chucky” or Coach Jon Gruden is the person on Adams list of favorites to replace Jeff Fisher.  In fact the job is his if he wants it.  Coach Gruden was considered to fill the vacancy of the University of Tennessee but according to sources declined. However, he expressed his like for Tennessee and one more thing.  Coach Gruden is someone who had offered high praise for Vince Young.  It is only scuttlebutt right now, but it could be fact sooner than you think.
