Brian Callahan, the longest-tenured offensive coordinator in the NFL, is expected to be named head coach of the Tennessee Titans.
The 39-year-old is in high demand this offseason, but it would be this team that won the debate following Callahan's second interview on Monday, NFL Network reported. An in-person meeting with the Carolina Panthers and Atlanta Falcons was also scheduled later this week.

The Illinois native has been the offensive coordinator for the Cincinnati Bengals since 2019. He previously worked as a quarterback manager for the Detroit Lions and Oakland Raiders. He began his NFL journey in 2010 with the Denver Broncos, with whom he won the Super Bowl in 2015.
Callahan could follow in his father Bill's footsteps and become head coach on the Goodell circuit. He managed the Raiders in 2002 and 2003 and is an offensive line instructor for the Cleveland Browns. There are rumors that he might follow his son to Tennessee.
The Titans have been searching for an edge since firing Mike Vrabel after six seasons. They went 6-11 this season and missed the playoffs for the second year in a row.
