It seems that the Tennessee Titans are wasting no time making changes to their team. Monday night, the Titans offensive coordinator, Chris Palmer, was fired.
“I appreciate the time and effort he put in here. As an offense, I didn’t feel like we were progressing the way that I had hoped,” says Titans coach Mike Munchak in a statement released by the team.
The quarterback coach, Dowell Loggains has been named Palmer’s replacement. “Dowell has worked here for a number of years under some successful coordinators, and he is ready for the challenge,” states Munchak.
With this early change to the Titans coaching staff, we can expect to see more changes coming into the 2013 season.
