The Tennessee Titans have named Brett Maxie as their secondary coach. Maxie replaces Marcus Robertson who was let go a couple of weeks ago.
Here is what Mike Munchak had to say about the hire:
"What stood out to me was his diverse experience as a player and a coach," said Titans head coach Mike Munchak. "He has worked with some really good coordinators from a variety of backgrounds. He is a detailed guy who has had a lot of success as a coach and a player. We were aware that his contract had expired, and I talked to a number of people around the league about him and heard nothing but positive things, which is a rarity in this league."
Here is what Maxie had to say about joining the Titans:
"I am really excited about this opportunity and the chance to work with Mike Munchak and Jerry Gray," said Maxie. "I have played and coached against each of these men and I have great respect for what they are all about and what they have accomplished. Mike has an impeccable reputation as a coach and I like what I heard about how he runs his team. Jerry and I came into the league as players at the same time (1985) and our teams battled each other in the old NFC West and I have admired his work as a coach through the years."
Maxie will have his work cut out for him with all of the turnover that is probably going to take place in the secondary.
