General manager Jon Robinson has added the title of Executive Vice President in a move made by the club Thursday evening.
Robinson, hired one year ago by the Titans as general manager replacing Ruston Webster, has overseen the rebuilding of the club’s roster through the draft, trades and free agency, bringing in such key players DeMarco Murray, Jack Conklin, Kevin Byard and Rishard Matthews among others to help the Titans turn around a team that had won just five games in the previous two years.
Those moves helped the Titans improve to 9-7 in 2016.
“Jon has done great work since his arrival to our organization and this is a way to recognize that fact,” Titans Controlling Owner Amy Adams Strunk said. “His leadership and football acumen helped change our culture and improve our team. He and Mike (Mularkey) deserve a great deal of credit for our turnaround this year and I am hopeful that will continue this coming year and into the future. This is an acknowledgement of his work and it puts him on equal footing with others in the league who direct football operations.”
Robinson said he was honored to have earned a promotion.
“Amy called me today to talk about this promotion and I was truly humbled and grateful,” Robinson said. “This organization means the world to me and I am working on a daily basis to make it better. I don’t stand alone in this task of improving our team – from ownership, Mike and the coaches, the players who have bought in to our program, scouts and staff. We all have worked together to create a family and hopefully a culture of long-term success.”
Robinson is currently the only Titans official to have the executive vice president title. At one time, the Titans routinely bestowed their top executives both football and non-football with that title.
