The Titans interviewed two internal candidates, offensive coordinator Mike Heimerdinger on Tuesday and offensive line coach Mike Munchak on Monday.

Munchak is considered the front-runner for the job because of long-term relationship with Titans owner Bud Adams.

Mularkey has NFL head-coaching experience, going 14-18 with the Buffalo Bills between 2004 and 2005 before resigning in 2006 over philosophical differences with the front office. He was 9-7 in 2004, the Bills' first winning season in five years.

Mularkey interviewed for the Cleveland Browns' head-coaching job this offseason before Pat Shurmur was hired. Mularkey canceled an interview for the Broncos' head-coaching job, which later went to John Fox.

Mularkey has groomed quarterback Matt Ryan in his past three seasons in Atlanta. Mularkey also spent eight seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers under Bill Cowher, including three years as offensive coordinator.
