Georgia Tech Alumni News: Ken Whisenhunt Hired as Tennessee Titans Head Coach

It’s always great to hear about Georgia Tech alumni making good in their careers, especially when it involves the athletic department. Former Yellow Jackets tight end, Ken Whisenhunt, has been hired by the NFL’s Tennessee Titans as their new head coach.

Whisenhunt was preceded by Mike Munchak, who was head coach of the Titans from 2010-2013, and compiled a 22-26 record with the team.

It’s great to see Ken getting another chance to coach an NFL team. The former Atlanta Falcons tight end has had several very successful stints as an offensive coordinator in the league, including most recently with the San Diego Chargers. He was also one of the architects of the Arizona Cardinals revival, posting a 45-51 record in six seasons (2007-2012), and taking them to the Super Bowl following the 2008 season.

Whisenhunt played at Georgia Tech from 1980-84, where he received his degree in Civil Engineering. During his senior season on the Flats, he was an honorable mention All-American, and finished first team All-ACC during his final two college seasons

Congrats to coach Whisenhunt, and best of luck with the Titans!
