NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- People familiar with the decision said Friday that Titans coach Mike Munchak is parting ways with special teams coach Alan Lowry. Lowry is the designer of the Music City Miracle play that spurred Tennessee's lone Super Bowl run in 2000.
Those same sources said Munchak has told Lowry his contract would not be renewed. The people spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity, because the team is not announcing any moves until all coaching changes are completed.
Lowry just finished his 17th season with the franchise, and the last 14 were spent coaching special teams. He designed a play called Home Run Throwback that the Titans used to beat Buffalo in an AFC wild-card game in January 2000. The Titans returned a kickoff and three punts for touchdowns in 2012.
The Tennessean was the first to report the move.
