Today marked the beginning of Dick LeBeau Month in Pittsburgh, but tonight he’s moving south.
According to Jim Wyatt of the Tenneseean, the veteran assistant coach is expected to be named the Titans’ assistant head coach/defense.
LeBeau worked with Titans head coach Ken Whisenhunt in Pittsburgh (along with a lot of other coaches), and lends some immediate credibility to a team that needs in.
He had a chance to go to Arizona, but apparently preferred to stay in the Eastern half of the country to be nearer family.
Ray Horton will remain defensive coordinator, but a chance to add a mind like LeBeau’s to staff had to have been an easy call for Whisenhunt.
