Here are three possibilities who could take over Jeff Fisher's old Titans job:

* Giants defensive coordinator Perry Fewell: Already Fewell has interviewed for three head coaching spots this year, so at this point, he’s the most-experienced interviewee of the offseason.

* Texans defensive coordinator Wade Phillips: This relationship goes back a long way. It might be too soon to rehire the fired Phillips, but Adams employed Phillips’ dad, Bum Phillips, in the ‘70s with the Oilers, and those teams had plenty of success.

* Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams: Apparently, he and Adams have a nice relationship, and he was in the Oilers/Titans organization from 1990-2000. But according to Rapid Reporter Larry Holder, the lack of a starting quarterback in the organization could keep Williams away from the position. Plus, he and Fisher happen to be really good friends, so Fisher certainly could discourage Williams from taking the job.

By the way, this is what Williams told Holder earlier this week at the Senior Bowl regarding potential head coaching openings: “It has to be the right job. Here’s what I say, when you have players and you have coaches that answer you in absolutes, they’re lying to you. So for me to say ‘I never,’ I couldn’t say that. But I can say that I have a great job right now that I love. Love! "

Also, Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean has floated the name of offensive line coach Mike Munchak who could be in line to replace Fisher.
