    MIKE HEIMERDINGER
    Thursday, January 20, 2005
    Age: 52

    Nickname: Dinger.



    Playing career: No pro experience.

    Interviews: Runner-up for the 49ers' head coaching job filled this week and for Raiders' head-coaching job in 2003.

    Why football? Heimerdinger grew up around the game because his father, Bob, was a high school coach and an equipment manager at Northern Illinois.

    Offensive philosophy: A chameleon, Heimerdinger adapted to the Titans' personnel. He changed from a run-first attack, when RB Eddie George was in his prime, to a run-and-shoot, with a more mature Steve McNair at QB.

    Memo to Chad: With McNair hurt, Titans backup Billy Volek had three 300-yard games this past season -- including 426 yards vs. the Chiefs and 492 yards vs. the Raiders in back-to-back weeks.

    Did you know: He played in the College World Series in 1974 as a center fielder at Eastern Illinois.

    Personal: Married (Kathie) with two children (Alicia and Brian).

    HEIMERDINGER ON ...

    The shotgun: "I'm for the shotgun if Chad wants to be in the shotgun. If Chad is not comfortable in the shotgun, then we're not going to put him in the shotgun.

    RBs Curtis Martin and LaMont Jordan (if he stays): "There will be enough plays for them both to get enough touches."

    On getting a tight end: "I know we have the money to do it, and they have shown that they want to be aggressive and go out and get what they need to fit for the offense and get in the right position and give some different looks."

    On going vertical with a weaker-armed QB: "What is a vertical game? Is it throwing it 70 yards, which isn't a very high-percentage pass, or is it (throwing) 20, 25, yards and hitting a guy in stride? Well, he proved he can throw that the other day. That's vertical."

    Why the Jets: "Very good offensive line. Working for Herm is a plus. The front office is a class front office that gives the coaches some say in some things. There's some money there. There's just a lot of pluses to come here"
