Las Vegas Raiders interim head coach Antonio Pierce celebrates on the field after his team defeats the Denver Broncos, 27-14, during an NFL football game at Allegiant Stadium Sunday, Jan. 7, 2024.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Tennessee Titans have interviewed Las Vegas Raiders interim head coach Antonio Pierce for their vacant head coaching job.

The Titans announced Saturday they completed their third interview to find a replacement for Mike Vrabel, who was dismissed Tuesday after consecutive losing seasons and just six wins in the last 24 games.

Pierce was named interim head coach for the Raiders after Josh McDaniels was fired on Oct. 31 following a 3-5 start to his second season with the team. Pierce and the Raiders went 5-4 after the change, and he remains a leading candidate to get the full-time job.

On Friday, the Titans starting the coaching search, interviewing Bengals offensive coordinator Brian Callahan and Giants offensive coordinator Mike Kafka.

Pierce, who joined the Raiders as linebackers coach in 2022, started his coaching career as a high school head coach at Long Beach Poly in California before joining Arizona State as linebackers coach/recruiting coordinator in 2018. He worked from 2018 to 2021 at Arizona State, where he eventually rose to Assistant Head Coach/Defensive Coordinator, before joining the Raiders.

Pierce played linebacker in the NFL with Washington and the New York Giants, winning a Super Bowl with New York in February 2008.
