Tennessee Titans president and CEO Tommy Smith had not made any decisions Friday night after reviewing every part of the team with coach Mike Munchak and his general manager.

Smith said in a statement that he planned all along to review every aspect of the team's football operations when the season ended and did just that in his meeting with Munchak and Ruston Webster.

''We had good discussions, but no final decisions were made,'' Smith said.

Munchak and Webster flew to Texas on Friday morning and met all day with Smith before returning late in the afternoon. Munchak's truck was moved onto the tarmac at the Nashville airport, and he eluded reporters by driving out a different gate.

The Tennessean cited sources Friday that Smith had decided to keep Munchak as his coach for 2014.

Munchak, who has a season left on his contract, is 22-26 since being hired Feb. 7, 2011. His only winning season came in 2011 at 9-7, slumping to 6-10 in 2012. Owner Bud Adams spent more than $100 million in the offseason on 13 new free agents, but the Titans went 7-9 for 2013 with quarterback Jake Locker missing 14 of 32 starts to injuries.

But Munchak has said the Titans are close to being a playoff team needing only a few more players.

Webster said in a statement that they had a good conversation about moving the Titans forward.

''Nothing final has been decided at this point, but we hope to have a decision soon,'' Webster said.

Munchak said Monday he loves this job and the challenge of bringing the Titans together to win a championship. The Titans have missed the postseason five straight years and haven't won a playoff game since January 2003.
