Titans hire Ran Carthon as general manager

The Tennessee Titans are hiring San Francisco 49ers director of player personnel Ran Carthon to be their next general manager, multiple reports said Tuesday.

Carthon, who turns 42 next month, is a former NFL running back who has also served as a scout for the Atlanta Falcons and director of player personnel for the St. Louis/Los Angeles Rams.

Carthon had been with San Francisco since May 2017. He started as the director of pro personnel before being promoted to director of player personnel ahead of the 2021 season.

The Titans began the 2022 season 7-3 before losing their final seven games to bottom out at 7-10 and miss the playoffs. During that slide, they fired general manager Jon Robinson on Dec. 6, 10 months after giving him a contract extension.

Another candidate for Tennessee was its own director of player personnel, Monti Ossenfort, but Ossenfort was hired as the Arizona Cardinals’ general manager on Monday.

Carthon appeared in nine NFL games across 2005 and 2006 for the Indianapolis Colts. He scored two touchdowns among his 16 carries in those games. He played collegiately at Florida.
