The search for a new wide receivers coach has been concluded. The team hired Frisman Jackson to take on the role, and also hired Craig Aukerman to be assistant special teams coach. Jackson previously was Temple's passing game coordinator and wide receivers coach. He also formerly played as a receiver in the NFL, and has over 20 years of football experience. He also has ties to both Robiskie and Mularkey. He played under Robiskie when he played for the Browns, and he worked with OC Glenn Thomas while at Temple, who was an offensive assistant with the Atlanta Falcons when both Mularkey and Robiskie were there. Aukerman was previously the special teams coordinator with the Chargers, and has also coached with the Jaguars and Broncos in the past.
Quick Hit: Jerome Reid named Trainer of the Year.
A year ago Mularkey was named the official head coach of the Titans. The disdain for the hire was swift. Many people weren't a fan of the move, and many (such as myself) were upset with the "search" that happened prior to him being named the head coach. Well. Mularkey proved people wrong, and still has many of us eating crow. Joe Rexrode dives into how Mularkey proved everyone wrong. I'm definitely feeling better about the hire these days, but now the team just needs to improve against divisional rivals. We got this!
