DETROIT (Det. Free Press) -- It appears the Detroit Lions will not get Ken Whisenhunt after all.
Reports surfaced this evening from ESPN and The Tennessean in Nashville that the Tennessee Titans will hire Whisenhunt as head coach.
Meanwhile, ESPN's Adam Schefter says the Lions have spent today in talks with Baltimore Ravens offensive coordinator Jim Caldwell and are focusing on him.
Caldwell was the first candidate to interview with the Lions last week. He went 26-22 as Indianapolis Colts head coach from 2009-11, losing to the New Orleans Saints in Super Bowl XLIV in his first season.
However, Caldwell went 2-14 in his final year, when quarterback Peyton Manning was lost for the season.
Caldwell has since served as Ravens offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.
Former Colts coach and Jackson native Tony Dungy had high praise for Caldwell as the potential Lions' head coach.
