Titans defensive coordinator fined $20K

Tennessee Titans defensive coordinator Chuck Cecil was fined $20,000 for prohibited verbal abuse of a game official, according to a league source.

The Titans had just been flagged for roughing Philip Rivers when an official heard Cecil say something. The Titans were penalized another 15 yards for unsportsmanlike conduct.

Coach Jeff Fisher defended his first-year coordinator, saying Cecil was overheard talking to fellow coaches on his headset.

This isn’t the first time this season the NFL has fined someone other than a Tennessee player.

Titans owner Bud Adams was fined $250,000 for obscene hand gestures after a 41-17 win over Buffalo on Nov. 15.
