Arrival of Palmer, Ragone in Tennessee could open door for Josh McCown

Last night, reports surfaced that former Hartford Colonials quarterbacks coach Dave Ragone will be joining former Colonials head coach Chris Palmer on the Titans coaching staff, as receivers coach.

So will their star pupil in Hartford be next?

In announcing Ragone’s arrival, the Titans point out that Palmer and Ragone helped quarterback Josh McCown become the highest rated passer in the UFL.  (Which, in fairness, some would regard as being the winner of a dog race, three legs category.)  With the Titans scrambling for help at quarterback, McCown could land a job given that he knows Palmer’s system.

McCown has 27 careers starts.  He last played in the NFL during the 2009 season.

The Titans also announced that Art Valero will serve as assistant offensive line coach, Chet Parlavecchio will be the as assistant special teams coach, and Arthur Smith is the new defensive assistant/quality control.

Gone are assistant secondary coach Tim Hauck and special teams assistant Marty Galbraith.
