NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Mike Munchak believes the Titans are close to finishing a rebuilding project and turning this franchise into a playoff team once again.
Now he must convince Tennessee's new president and chief executive officer Tommy Smith that he's still the best man as head coach.
Bud Adams spent more than $100 million bringing in 13 free agents and made it clear before he died that he expected 2013 to be a playoff season.
But the Titans lost quarterback Jake Locker for nine games and missed the playoffs for a fifth straight season at 7-9 -- two wins shy of a berth.
The coach will meet first with general manager Ruston Webster, then Smith later this week.
Munchak said Monday he believes only a few changes are needed.
