Titans name Cecil defensive coordinator

The Tennessee Titans just introduced new defensive coordinator Chuck Cecil at a news conference. Cecil has spent the last eight seasons involved in several aspects of the Titans’ defense, including quality control (2001-03), safeties and nickel backs coach (2004-06) and secondary coach (2007-08).

Titans head coach Jeff Fisher made the announcement.

“He’s without question, the best man available for the job,” said Fisher. “And he’s right here. Stability and¬†continuity¬†are very important to us. … He brings a great deal of experience.”

Cecil played seven NFL seasons for the Packers (1988-92), Cardinals (93) and Oilers (95), totaling 400 career tackles, 16 interceptions and a trip to the Pro Bowl in 1992.

He fielded questions from reporters, and his best line was this:

“I’m not going to sit here and tell you I have all the answers,” Cecil joked. “I have a couple of them. If you want all the answers, you’ll have to call my wife.”
