Nashville: Head coach Mike Munchak was fired Saturday by the Tennessee Titans after three seasons in charge of the National Football League team.

The Titans won nine games and lost seven in Munchak`s first season, then slipped to 6-10 in 2012 before a slight rebound to seven victories this year.

Munchak had been with the franchise since 1982 as both a star player and coach. He was chosen to play in nine Pro Bowls and named All-Pro twice. In 2001, Munchak was inducted into the hall of fame.

After retiring as a player, Munchak spent three seasons assisting the coaching staff before becoming offensive line coach in 1997. He took over head coach duties in the 2010 season from Jeff Fisher.
