Titans interview Bengals coordinator Jay Gruden

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The Tennessee Titans have kicked off their search for a new head coach by interviewing Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden.

The Titans confirmed Tuesday that Gruden had finished interviewing with general manager Ruston Webster.

Gruden has been the Bengals' offensive coordinator the past three seasons as Cincinnati reached the playoffs each of those years. Gruden interviewed last season with four different teams about head coaching jobs.

The Titans are one of five NFL teams looking for a new coach after firing Mike Munchak on Saturday.

This is only the team's second coaching search since leaving Texas for Tennessee in 1997, and the first conducted by Webster. Tennessee went 7-9 this season extending a playoff drought to five straight years with the last postseason win back in January 2003.
