NASHVILLE – The Tennessee Titans continued the interview process Tuesday in their search for a new general manager. The team confirmed that it concluded an interview with Malik Boyd, senior director of pro scouting for the Buffalo Bills.
The next general manager will be the 15th in the history of the franchise and will replace Jon Robinson, who was fired on Dec. 6, 2022, after six-plus seasons on the job.
Ossenfort accepted the job as Arizona Cardinals general manager on Monday, which reduced the number of candidates by one. The Titans, however, are the only remaining NFL team in search of a general manager. Any need to make a quick decision is now gone.
All Titans will continue to provide a look at all the candidates as they interview.
