Mike Mularkey brought the axe down on some of his assistant coaches Wednesday.
The Tennessee Titans "parted ways" with wide receivers coach Bob Bratkowski and assistant wide receivers coach Jason Tucker, according to the team website.
"I have a lot of respect for both Bob and Jason and I want to thank them for their work this year," Mularkey said in a statement. "The search process begins now as we look for a coach to lead the wide receivers and add to our coaching group on offense."
Mularkey will look to replace the duo immediately. Titans pass-catchers averaged just 232.5 yards per game and scored 29 touchdowns. Rishard Matthews scored nine of those touchdowns, while tight end Delanie Walker scored seven times. The Titans will likely eye a wide receiver in the 2017 NFL Draft.
Bratkowski, 61, began his NFL coaching career in 1992 as a wide receivers coach with the Seattle Seahawks. After leaving the Seahawks for the Pittsburgh Steelers in 1999, he worked with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Cincinnati Bengals, Atlanta Falcons, and Jacksonville Jaguars. He joined the Titans in 2016.
