Titans hire a special teams coach

The Titans have started the process of replacing the assistant coaches fired since the end of the regular season.

Alex Marvez of reports that the team has hired Nate Kaczor as their new special teams coordinator. Kaczor was on head coach Mike Munchak’s staff last year as an assistant offensive line coach. Alan Lowry, the man behind the Music City Miracle, was fired after 17 years running Tennessee’s special teams.

Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean is hearing the same on Kaczor and reports that the team has also promoted from within to fill the linebackers coach spot vacated by Frank Bush. Chet Parlavecchio (pictured) will move into the job after working as a special teams assistant under Lowry. Wyatt reports that players in the Titans credit Parlavecchio with ideas that led to positive plays on special teams, which obviously made the Titans wonder if he could do the same for the linebackers.

The Titans are still looking for a running backs coach after their efforts to lure Sherman Smith away from Seattle were unsuccessful.

    IDK whether to laugh or cry for my beloved Titans.

    On one hand, we have a fresh start and a new season (along with a quite frankly, winnable division) in front of us.

    On the other hand, we have a lame duck HC, a terrible DC, an unproven and unknown OC, a starting QB who is a good guy off the field but a terrible one on it, and a fan base that seems to grow tired of the mediocrity displayed each and every year.

    But oh yes, we have a new special teams coordinator. Hooray!

    That is great for the Titans.
    As a Texans fan, I hope Alan Lowry becomes the special teams coach in Houston.

    Firing Lowry was dumb.

    I hate seeing “promote from within”. Get a real ST coordinator. The last time they “promoted from within” a lowly o-line coach got the HEAD coaching job! Guffaw!
