Mike Munchak trying to follow up Hall of Fame success


NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Titans coach Mike Munchak knows he's in rare company.

Oh sure, he's one of 32 NFL head coaches. He's also only the seventh Hall of Fame player since the 1970 merger to later work as a head coach in this league. And Munchak has been in this league long enough to know he has to win now going into his third season with the Titans coming off a 6-10 record.

Munchak says he's excited because this is his opportunity too, one not many people get.

He joined Raymond Berry, Mike Ditka, Forrest Gregg, Art Shell and Mike Singletary as Hall of Fame players turned coaches when named the Titans' head coach Feb. 7, 2011.

The Titans wrap up the preseason Thursday at Minnesota.
