NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Titans coach Mike Munchak has fired offensive coordinator Mike Heimerdinger along with two other assistants as he starts to remake his coaching staff a day after taking over the top job.

Heimerdinger, who is continuing cancer treatment after diagnosed in November, confirmed to The Associated Press on Tuesday that he had been fired. The Titans released a statement a couple hours later that Munchak also told defensive assistant Rayna Stewart and offensive assistant Richie Wessman that they will not be retained.

Hate to say it, but 3 years too late, IMO.

Munchak is tearing the team apart!

I don't see the story here. Sure he has cancer, but does that mean he should keep his job just because he is a sentimental story? If he wasn't sick I'm pretty sure this wouldn't even make a ripple in the news world.

Yeah unfortunately this is a results oriented business and you can't pay someone millions of dollars if you don't like their results just because they have cancer. In fact it might be in his best interest to take time off to fight through it so he can beat it and spend time with his family in case he can't.

Supposedly Fisher had all of the assistant coaches contracts extended in November. Since he was fired he will collect the balance of his contract while he recovers.
