Biography

John McNulty is in his 25th season coaching, 13th NFL season and his second year with the Titans. He joined the Titans coaching staff following a season (2013) with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as quarterbacks coach.

In the time he spent coaching wide receivers and quarterbacks in Arizona (2009-2012), McNulty worked with Titans head coach Ken Whisenhunt, then the head coach for the Cardinals.

Last season, McNulty saw three different quarterbacks start at least five games due to injuries. Jake Locker started the season, Charlie Whitehurst started five games and rookie Zach Mettenberger started six games during the middle of the season. Mettenberger reached a number of highs during the season, including the rookie franchise mark for passing yards in a game (345 at Philadelphia), the highest franchise passer rating for a rookie season (83.4), highest passing yardage total by any rookie on Monday Night Football (263) and the second-highest passer rating among the 2014 rookie class of quarterbacks.


With the Buccaneers, McNulty guided rookie QB Mike Glennon to rookie franchise marks for passing yards and touchdowns. Furthermore, Glennon registered the top passer rating (82.0) among NFL rookies in 2013 and was named to the Pro Football Writers of America All-Rookie team.

Prior to joining Tampa Bay, McNulty spent four seasons (2009-12) with the Arizona Cardinals, three (2009-11) as the wide receivers coach and one (2012) as quarterbacks coach. Under his direction, WR Larry Fitzgerald was selected to three Pro Bowls and earned two All-Pro selections (2009, 2011). Fitzgerald also led the NFL in touchdown receptions (13) in 2010 and became the franchise leader in receiving yards, receiving touchdowns and 100-yard games during their time together.

Between NFL coaching positions, McNulty spent five seasons (2004-08) with Rutgers in varying capacities. His first two seasons with the team were spent as wide receivers coach before being promoted to assistant offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach for a year and finally offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach for his final two seasons with the Scarlet Knights. Notably, his 2007 offense set school records for total offense (5,841 yards), points scored (421) and first downs (295). The offensive unit also became the first in NCAA history to include a 3,000-yard passer (Mike Teel-3,140), a 2,000-yard rusher (Ray Rice-2,069) and two 1,000-yard receivers (Kenny Britt-1,232; Tiquan Underwood-1,100) in a single season.

McNulty began his coaching career in 1991 as a graduate assistant for the University of Michigan, where he spent four years before coaching wide receivers for another three seasons at the University of Connecticut. He joined the NFL ranks with the Jacksonville Jaguars in 1998 as their quality control coach, where he stayed until 2002. He followed his time with the Jaguars with a single season coaching wide receivers for the Dallas Cowboys in 2003.

Playing safety for the Penn State Nittany Lions (1988-90), McNulty was a member of two bowl teams. He graduated in 1990 with a degree in business management.

A native of Pennsylvania, McNulty and his wife, Kim, have four daughters: Abigail, Allison, Megan and Kaitlyn.
