NFLN survey/popular coach: Titans

NASHVILLE, Tenn. –- Of 320 players who talked to ESPN.com for an anonymous survey, one player listed Mike Munchak as the head coach they’d most like to play for.

I’m going to guess that vote came from an offensive lineman.

Munchak was subsequently fired and the Titans replaced him with Ken Whisenhunt.

Having a bad year and getting fired didn’t eliminate Munchak or other coaches who would be fired for getting votes here.

Gary Kubiak didn’t make it through the season and he got nine votes. Jim Schwartz and Mike Shanahan each got three. Leslie Frazier got one.

Pete Carroll was the big winner with 22.5 percent of the vote followed by Mike Tomlin (13.8), John Fox (7.8), Rex Ryan (7.2), Bill Belichick (6.9), Andy Reid (6.9) and Sean Payton (6.6).

I don’t think we’ll be doing this same exact survey in a year, but if we did it would be interesting to see how many votes Whisenhunt would get.
