The Tennessee Titans have reportedly found their next general manager.

According to ESPN's Dianna Russini, the Titans are hiring San Francisco 49ers Director of Pro Personnel Ryan Carthon.

A former star running back at Florida, Carthon played three seasons in the NFL before joining the Atlanta Falcons as a scout in 2008.

He served as the Rams' director of player personnel from 2012 to 2016 prior to the start of his 49ers tenure.

The Titans fired John Robinson as their GM during their seventh season.

He finished each of his six seasons with a winning record and led the AFC South 7–5 before he was fired in November.

Tennessee proceeded to lose the next five games,

including a Week 18 matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars that decided the division winner.

Carthon will be looking to revamp an offense

that has gained the third-fewest total yards in 2022 and is averaging 17.5 points per game.

Wide receiver in particular remains an area of improvement, which Robinson's A.J.  Brown last off-season.

ESPN's Field Yates noted that Tennessee would send San Francisco the 2023 and 2024 third-round picks as compensation.
