Titans Fire GM Jon Robinson

Written by Tony Ghaul

The Tennessee Titans shockingly fired GM Jon Robinson, just two days after the Philadelphia Eagles routed them 35-10.

Robinson’s sudden exit comes with the Titans still atop the AFC South, however, and on pace to host a playoff game. Vice president of player personnel Ryan Cowden has been named interim GM in Robinson’s place, per NFL Media.

Statement from owner Amy Adams Strunk:

“Since becoming controlling owner in 2015, my goal has been to raise the standard for what is expected in all facets of our organization. I believe we have made significant progress both on and off the field through investments in leadership, personnel and new ideas. This progress includes the core of our business, the football team itself, which is regularly evaluated both by results (wins and losses) and team construction/roster building. I am proud of what we have accomplished in my eight seasons of ownership, but I believe there is more to be done and higher aspirations to be met.

“I want to thank Jon for his dedicated work to set this organization on an upward trajectory and I wish him and his family the best.”
