Titans GM looking for 'right' fit in next coach

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

Ruston Webster is in charge of his first coaching search in the NFL and only the Titans' second since moving to Tennessee, and the general manager says his goal is finding the man who is the right fit for the franchise.
    
He's also not limiting what he wants in the Titans' next coach.
    
Webster wants to start interviewing candidates as soon as possible to replace Mike Munchak, who was fired Saturday after three years as head coach and 31 seasons with the franchise overall.
    
The general manager says some of the candidates he wants to interview still are coaching in the playoffs. With the Titans firing Munchak six days after the regular season ended, they missed the window to interview candidates whose teams had a bye this week.
