Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Brain Johnson is in high demand across the NFL for head coaching vacancies despite Philly’s inconsistent offense throughout this season.
The first-year offensive coordinator will reportedly interview with the Carolina Panthers and quickly received another interview request on Thursday from an AFC team.
Eagles News: Brian Johnson Catches Attention of the Titans
Jordan Schultz of Bleacher Report reported Thursday that the Titans requested to interview Johnson for their vacant head coach position.
As we saw with the Panthers, it doesn’t come as a shock to see the Titans want to talk with the first-year coordinator, especially with Tennessee having a young quarterback (Will Levis) that they are trying to develop.
Before Johnson stepped into the offensive coordinator role this season, he spent the previous two years as the Eagles quarterback coach developing Jalen Hurts. Hurts took a massive leap from 2021 and 2022, which led to him getting a blockbuster five-year deal this past offseason and being locked in as the team’s franchise quarterback.
Ideally, the Titans would love to see the same trajectory for Will Levis, as he’ll likely be the starter next season as Ryan Tannehill is scheduled to be a free agent this offseason.
As for Johnson, he’s seen his fair share of criticism this season because of his playcalling, but the Eagles’ offense was ranked inside the top 10 in scoring (25.5 points per game, 7th in the NFL) and rushing (128.8 yards per game).
Nonetheless, it’s clear that other NFL teams see something in Johnson, and they want to know if he could be a head coach now or in the future.
However, Johnson has to get the Eagles’ offense ready for Monday’s Super Wild Card weekend game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Even though his offense has struggled, Eagles fans can bet on them on FanDuel Sportsbook. New customers can deposit $10 and bet $5 to win $150 in bonus bets, regardless of the result. It’s a fantastic promo that fans should check before kickoff on Monday night.
