What did the Titans do?

After reading this on yahoo.com, I’m a tad confused. What did the Titans do? Did they promote Mike Mularkey to head coach? I thought so. But then I read that they hired a new coach:

fp hire coach

That’s the kind of head-scratcher you’ll face when a writer uses the wrong word. The Titans didn’t hire a new coach, the team named a new coach. The coach had already been hired.

    All of these news organizations are so worried about getting news out fast, that proofreading falls to way the wayside. Especially on social media. Sad truth. :/

      You’re right. If editors or writers do any proofreading, it’s done after the words are published. I understand the occasional typo, but not the flagrant and frequent misuse of common words and the daily misspellings, which would be caught by any spellchecker. Sigh.
