NFL

TENNESSEE: Ruston Webster is in charge of his first coaching search in the NFL and only the Titans' second since moving to Tennessee, and the general manager says his goal is finding the man who is the right fit for the franchise. Webster wants to start interviewing candidates as soon as possible to replace Mike Munchak, who was fired Saturday after three years as head coach and 31 seasons with the franchise overall.

ESPN.com reported Sunday that Seahawks defensive coordinator Dan Quinn is a leading candidate. Quinn was assistant head coach in Seattle in 2009 when Webster was vice president of player personnel for the Seahawks.

WASHINGTON: Perry Fewell's interview for the Washington Redskins coaching job has been set for today. Fewell becomes the fifth known candidate to interview as the potential replacement for Mike Shanahan, who was fired last week.

SEATTLE: The NFL fined Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch $50,000 for violating the league's media policy. Lynch stepped in front of a camera Friday and spoke for less than 90 seconds. It was his first time taking questions from the media all season, having politely declined every previous time. The Seahawks will host the New Orleans Saints in the divisional playoffs Saturday. Lynch finished the regular season with 1,257 yards rushing and 12 touchdowns.
