On Wednesday, the Tennessee Titans announced that their next head coach would be Brian Callahan, the offensive coordinator with the Cincinnati Bengals.

In his five seasons with the Bengals, Callahan's offenses routinely were one of the best in the NFL. The unit was the driving force behind their 2021 Super Bowl run and 2022 AFC Championship appearance.
