Ran Carthon was inducted Friday as general manager of the Tennessee Titans, a life goal that has been at least 20 years in the making.

Carthon was a running back at the University of Florida in the spring of 2003 when he told his girlfriend (now his wife) that he eventually wanted to be the general manager of an NFL team.

Well, those dreams were a little too far-fetched for her, says Carthon.

In fact, his career goals alone have cost the couple almost their entire relationship.

“She told me later that she almost stopped dating me because she never met anyone who lived in La La Land,” Carthon recalled to reporters.

“But honey, today that dream comes true and we realize that world that we put into it.”

Carthon was drafted from Florida and played nine NFL games with the Indianapolis Colts, but his front office career was very successful.

Just two years after hanging up the cleats, he joined the Atlanta Falcons as a pro scout. He then went to the St. Louis Rams to be their director of player personnel for five years. He joined the San Francisco 49ers in 2017 and most recently served as their director of player personnel.

The Titans spent much of the 2022 season chasing the playoffs. In fact, they started 7-3 and were well on their way to their fourth consecutive playoff appearance.

However, they lost seven games in a row to close out the season and were eliminated in Week 18 as the Jacksonville Jaguars won the AFC South against them.
