Jerry Gray emerges as candidate to coordinate Titans defense

Kirk Bohls of the Austin American-Statesman reports that University of Texas defensive backs coach Jerry Gray has emerged as a candidate to coordinate the Titans’ defense under Mike Munchak.

Current Titans linebackers coach Dave McGinnis was previously considered a strong candidate to run Munchak’s defense, but the rookie head coach is apparently looking outside the organization.

Gray and Munchak coached together on Jeff Fisher’s Titans staff for four years in the late 1990s. Gray moved on to become a defensive coordinator with the Bills, and later the Redskins’ defensive backs coach. He coached the Seahawks’ secondary in 2010.

Gray took the Texas job just three weeks ago, and was considered a coup for Longhorns coach Mack Brown.

That coup may not last long.

  1. It should be interesting to see who the Titans hire for a coaching staff.

    Heimerdinger looks like he might be out and there’s talk of ex-Oiler/Titan O-lineman Bruce Matthews leaving the Texans staff to rejoin the team he used to play for (and for whom his son now plays for) as the new O-line coach.

    And there’s also other positions to fill, like RB coach and DL coach. I’ve heard rumors about either Eddie George or Earl Campbell for the RB coach’s job… so far, these are just rumors.

    It should be very interesting alright…

  2. “0-18”?

    You must be high.

    Chris Johnson being on the team gets them at least 3 wins automatically…
