Mike Vrabel to Speak at the 10th Annual SportsFest

104-5 The Zone is excited to have Tennessee Titans Head Coach Mike Vrabel as a guest speaker at the 10th annual SportsFest at Nissan Stadium on Saturday, March 30th!

Mike Vrabel is entering his second season as the head coach of the Tennessee Titans. Vrabel is the 19th head coach in franchise history.

On September 16, 2018 Vrabel beat the Houston Texans in Week 2 for his first career win as a head coach. Vrabel also secured wins in his first season in Tennessee against reigning Super Bowl champs, the Eagles, and former squad, the Patriots. Vrabel and the Titans missed the playoffs last season by one game and finished the 2018 season with a 9-7 record.

Vrabel joined the Titans after four seasons with the Houston Texans. Vrabel spent three seasons as Houston’s linebackers coach and one season as the defensive coordinator.

Vrabel played college football at Ohio State, where he earned All-American honors and Big Ten Conference Defensive Lineman of the Year, back-to-back in 1995 and 1996. He was selected by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the third round of the 1997 NFL Draft. He joined the New England Patriots as a free agent in 2001, where he was an All-Pro and three-time Super Bowl champion. He finished his NFL playing career in Kansas City.

In Super Bowl XXXIX in 2005, Vrabel caught a two-yard touchdown pass while being held by Philadelphia’s Jevon Kearse. The reception made him one of 17 players to catch two or more touchdown passes in Super Bowl games. Vrabel finished with ten career receptions in just 14 targets — all for touchdowns. He caught one each in Super Bowls XXXVIII and XXXIX, all with the Patriots. No other player in NFL history has a better record of converting receptions to touchdowns (according to Cold Hard Facts). The NFL Network ranked Vrabel #7 on their Top 10 episode of Most Versatile Players.

After his playing days came to an end in the NFL, Vrabel transitioned into his first coaching job as the linebacker coach at Ohio State in 2011 and coached the defensive line from 2012-2013. His NFL coaching career began with the Houston Texans in 2014.

Mike Vrabel is an active supporter of Tennessee Special Olympics and Music City Blitz. This is his second year attending Music City Blitz. Last year the event raised $45,000 for Special Olympics Tennessee.

I wasn’t un-entertained, I was just left baffled. The series I…
