Mike Munchak has hired veteran coach Tom Moore to help the Tennessee Titans after firing offensive coordinator Chris Palmer and giving the job to Dowell Loggains.
Munchak says Thursday that the 32-year-old Loggains still will call the plays starting Sunday when the Titans (4-7) host Houston (10-1). But Loggains had been the quarterbacks coach, and Munchak says they needed more help in the building.
Moore worked with the Jets last season after his stint coaching with the Indianapolis Colts and working with Peyton Manning ended. Munchak didn't get permission to talk to Moore and Bill Callahan about being his coordinator before hiring Palmer in February 2011. Munchak says Moore, 74, will be a resource for Loggains and the Titans in general with his 38 years of experience in the NFL.
