The Tennessee Titans will start their head coaching search this week by meeting with the man who helped guide the team the final nine weeks of the 2015 season.

Via the Tennesseean, the Titans will meet with Mike Mularkey on Thursday. Mularkey led Tennessee to a 2-7 record after taking over for Ken Whisenhunt on Nov. 3.

Mularkey, who was Tennessee's assistant head coach before being elevated to replace Whisenhunt, is 18-39 as an NFL head coach. In addition to his stint with the Titans, he spent two seasons as head coach with the Buffalo Bills and one year as coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars.
