Mike Sullivan
Assistant Offensive Line

Biography

Mike Sullivan is in his 13th as an NFL coach and his second season as assistant offensive line coach for the Titans. He joined the Titans staff after coaching the offensive line for the Cleveland Browns in 2013. Having played the position for a number of years within the league, Sullivan brings experience and insight to his position.

Last year he aided rookie first-round pick Taylor Lewan, who would earn Pro Football Writers of America All Rookie honors, despite only starting six games due to injury. The offensive line group dealt with a myriad of injuries, including four front-line starters (Roos, Lewan, Schwenke and Oher) missing significant portions of the season and resulting in five different starting combinations throughout the season.


In 2013, Sullivan coached two of the Browns linemen to Pro Bowl selections – T Joe Thomas and C Alex Mack. His third stint with the Browns was preceded by four seasons as an offensive line coach for the San Diego Chargers. His coaching helped lead the Chargers offensive unit to average 1,640 rushing yards and 13 rushing touchdowns per season. He also guided G Kris Dielman to three Pro Bowl selections (2009, 2010, 2011) and Louis Vasquez to PFW/PFWA All-Rookie team in 2009.

Prior to joining the Chargers, Sullivan coached for the Browns on two separate occasions: first from 2001-04 as an assistant offensive line coach and then from 2007-08 as offensive line coach. His second stint with the team helped produce two consecutive Pro Bowl selections for T Joe Thomas.

Sullivan also has three seasons of college experience, as an offensive line coach for Western Michigan from 2005-06 and as a graduate assistant for his alma mater, the University of Miami (Fla.) in 2000. His coaching career began abroad in 1997, where he spent five seasons coaching in Germany, France and Spain for teams within the European Federation of American Football.

A four-year starter (48 games) at the University of Miami (Fla.) from 1987-90, Sullivan played both guard and tackle collegiately before being drafted in the sixth round of the 1991 NFL Draft by the Dallas Cowboys. He was a member of two National Title teams for the Miami Hurricanes in 1987 and 1989 and was inducted into the University of Miami Sports Hall of Fame in 2009. Sullivan would go on to play a total of 48 NFL games, all for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from 1992-95.

A native of Chicago, Sullivan and his wife, Carole, have two sons, Patrick and John, and a daughter, Teagan.
