Mike Sullivan
Assistant Offensive Line

Biography

Mike Sullivan is in his 15th year as an NFL coach and his fourth 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, the Titans offensive line earned notice as one of the best lines in the NFL. In his third NFL year, tackle Taylor Lewan earned his first Pro Bowl invitation and rookie tackle Jack Conklin earned first-team AP All-Pro honors. The line paved the way for the AFC’s leading rusher, DeMarco Murray, and allowed the seventh lowest sack total in the NFL.

In his first two years (2014-15), the offensive line group dealt with a myriad of injuries, which forced a number of different starting combinations during his time working with the group. Despite some of the hardships, Lewan earned All-Rookie honors from the Pro Football Writers of America for his play in limited starts in 2014.

In 2013, Sullivan coached two of the Browns linemen to Pro Bowl selections – tackle Joe Thomas and center 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 guard 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 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.
