Jim Wyatt is reporting via Twitter that the Titans have requested permission to talk to Brett Maxie of the Dallas Cowboys for the open defensive backs coach position. Maxie has been with the Cowboys since 2008.
It is hard for me to figure out who is and is not a good defensive backs coach. The Titans decided to let Marcus Robertson go after his defensive backs played much better than they did the year before. Now the Titans want to talk to Maxie who just had his defensive backs get embarrassed by Eli Manning and the Giants in the final game of the regular season. Does that mean he can't coach? No, but it still a curious decision to me.
It would be really fun if Mike Munchak would bring back Chuck Cecil to coach the defensive backs. Cecil was over-matched as a defensive coordinator, but he was the defensive backs coach the last time Michael Griffin didn't look like an arena league safety.
