Carthon, 41, has spent two seasons as the director of player personnel for the San Francisco 49ers. He previously served as director of pro personnel in San Francisco for five seasons. Carthon played two NFL seasons as a backup and return specialist for the Indianapolis Colts from 2005-2006.

Carthon takes over from ex-Titans general manager Jon Robinson, who was fired following a Week 13 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. He oversaw AJ Brown’s trade to the Eagles in the off-season. Brown scored 119 receiving yards and two touchdowns in the 35-10 victory en route to his first All-Pro season. Robinson served as Tennessee’s general manager for seven seasons.
