Add another Steelers assistant coach to the list of rumored potential Tennessee Titans coordinators. Jason La Canfora says he’s told that Steelers running backs coach Kirby Wilson is a possible offensive coordinator candidate in Tennessee.
Another OC candidate I'm told Ken Whisenhunt is high on (especially if he can't get McNulty) is Steelers RB coach Kirby Wilson

Kirby Wilson was rumored to be the next in line to replace Bruce Arians before he was hospitalized from burns he suffered in a house fire. While it does seem to come out of left field, it doesn’t seem quite as far fetched as it would have a year ago. Recent reports indicated that Wilson was involved in offensive game planning this past season.
Nonetheless, Wilson has no NFL experience as an offensive coordinator. With Whisenhunt’s status climbing to near iconic levels recently, it would stand to reason that he could have his pick of the top available offensive minds. While it is a bit of a head scratcher, stranger things have happened.
