Munchak looking for boost in Titans' offense

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Mike Munchak has made his biggest move yet as head coach of the Tennessee Titans.

He has put Tennessee's offense -- and possibly his future -- in the hands of 32-year-old quarterbacks coach Dowell Loggains.

Munchak fired offensive coordinator Chris Palmer on Monday night and gave the job to an assistant who will call his first NFL plays Sunday when the Titans host the Texans (10-1).

His motivation is pretty simple.

Owner Bud Adams put everyone in the franchise on notice last month, even Munchak, who has worked for this team 30 years as a player, assistant coach and now head coach. Munchak, with 2013 the last season of his contract, said their jobs are all on the line with a 4-7 record.
