The Tennessee Titans have fired one of their longest-tenured employees, and cut ties with one of their last links to the franchise’s previous incarnation as the Houston Oilers.
Brad Brown, who had just begun his 28th year as the team’s head athletic trainer, has been fired. Terry McCormick of Titan Insider reports that the team plans to bring in an outside candidate to replace Brown.
The Titans have gone through a great deal of change since the death of owner Bud Adams, most notably with the firing of former head coach Mike Munchak and the hiring of new head coach Ken Whisenhunt. The departure of Brown is another reminder that things are changing in Tennessee.
Brown was hired by the Oilers in 1987 after previously spending two seasons on the training staff of the Broncos.
