The Tennessee Titans are planning to bring back head coach Mike Munchak for another season, according to Jim Wyatt of the Tenneessean. However, the team has released a statement saying no decisions have been made final yet.

According to the report, team president/CEO Tommy Smith has decided to retain the coach for the 2014 season. Munchak has one year remaining on his contract.

The Titans finished 7-9 this season and Munchak has a career record of 22-26 in three seasons with the team.

But the team hasn't been to the playoffs since 2008 and haven’t won a playoff game in a decade.

“I feel real good about this team, how we have grown as a team throughout the year. I see it first-hand every day. I see the tape. I see what we are doing. I think I have a great feel for what we need as we continue to get better,’’ Munchak said.

“I don’t think we are that far off. I think you saw that in the way we played this year. I don’t think you saw a team that last year we had a hard time hanging in games. This year, we were right there. We just got to find, get a few closures. We just need to find a few more guys to help us close out games and we’ll be in great shape.”
