Report: Hue Jackson wants Ray Horton in Cleveland

Ray Horton on the move?

If Mike Mularkey is retained, he may be down a man on his defensive staff from last season.  Reportedly Hue Jackson has pinned Titans' defensive coordinator Ray Horton atop his wishlist.

Horton held the title of defensive coordinator last season for the Titans, but everyone had the feel that Dick LeBeau was the one calling the shots.  Horton was the Browns defensive coordinator in 2013 before leaving to join Ken Whisenhunt.

It's unclear right now who is safe on the current Titans' staff, but it looks like they all have contracts that run through February.  I wouldn't expect many to return if Mularkey is brought back, but even then Mike may want to move some things around.  We probably won't see the Browns granted permission until the Titans make a final decision on Mularkey.
