NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee Titans owner Bud Adams says he hoped to keep coach Jeff Fisher and quarterback Vince Young together for one more season, but couldn't find a way to make the relationship work.

Adams told The Tennessean that he had to "buckle down and get it over with" when it came to deciding which would stay with the team coming off a 6-10 season.

Adams decided on keeping Fisher, who is headed into his 17th season as coach without a contract extension.

Adams chose Young in 2006 after the former Texas Longhorns quarterback won the national title. On two occasions when the Titans were struggling, Adams sent word to Fisher that he wanted Young on the field, and the coach reluctantly complied.

Young was 30-18 as a starter, but he had problems dealing with adversity. Young will be released if the team cannot trade him.
