Former Titans coach Mike Munchak cleaned out his office at Saint Thomas Sports Park on Sunday, and he admitted he got emotional.

He took down a photo of the Gatorade bath he received after his first win, in 2011. He packed belongings he’d collected during his 31 years in the organization, dating back to his days as a player. He remembered his wife, Marci, spending so much time trying to make things look just right.

“I was so proud when I first got the chance. A lot of things go through your mind. This is an emotional time and I haven’t had to deal with it,’’ Munchak said. “I guess it’s my ‘Welcome to the NFL.’ I have been fired, let go, whatever you want to call it. It just didn’t work out. It is hard, and it hasn’t sunk in. When you start packing your boxes, it hits you.”

Munchak and the Titans parted ways on Saturday.

After three seasons, the Titans let him go after he refused to make mass changes on his coaching staff. The Titans offered Munchak an opportunity to return, even with a contract extension, if he would agree to reshape his coaching staff, but Munchak didn’t want to address that subject.

What Munchak did make clear: He was willing to make changes on his staff, but only to a point.

And he wasn’t going to remain as head coach under someone else’s plan, despite an offer to return. He didn’t see eye-to-eye with president Tommy Smith and general manager Ruston Webster on their plans for his coaching staff.
