About TENNESSEE FOOTBALL, INC.
Interpreting the mythology behind these Titans isn't so hard if you know something about football. Tennessee Football owns and operates the Tennessee Titans professional football team that represents Nashville in the National Football League. A charter member of the American Football League, the franchise was founded by Texas oilman Bud Adams as the Houston Oilers in 1959 and joined the NFL in 1970. It moved to the Volunteer State in 1997, originally playing in Memphis before settling in Music City (and changing its name) the following year. Tennessee made its first and only appearance in the Super Bowl at the end of the 1999 season, losing to the St. Louis Rams. Adams continues to control the team.
