Lebanon’s Ryan Cowden named interim GM of Tennessee Titans
Southwest Virginia native Ryan Cowden has been named the interim General Manager of the NFL’s Tennessee Titans following the dismissal of Jon Robinson on Tuesday.
Cowden, a standout athlete at Lebanon High, has been with the Titans organization since 2018 as vice president of player personnel specializing in college and pro scouting and free agency.
Cowden has interviewed with other NFL teams for past GM job openings and will likely be a prime candidate in Nashville.
This statement was released by Titans owner Amy Adams Strunk on Tuesday:
“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.”
