Former Chargers offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt was named head coach of the Titans on Monday. Whisenhunt picked Tennessee over Detroit and Cleveland. The Lions have also missed out on Bill O'Brien (Texans) and Lovie Smith (Buccaneers). Ravens assistant Jim Caldwell is now considered to be the front runner to replace Jim Schwartz here in Detroit. Gary Kubiak and Mike Munchak are in the running as well.
