Titans name Shane Bowen defensive coordinator

NFL: Tennessee Titans Practice George Walker IV/The Tennessean-USA TODAY NETWORK

This should go over well.

The Titans are promoting Shane Bowen to defensive coordinator. This makes two internal promotions for the coordinator positions just hours apart, after it was reported that Todd Downing was being elevated from tight ends coach to offensive coordinator.

Bowen didn’t officially have the defensive coordinator title last season, but he had all the duties of one. The Titans defense was terrible.

Titans fans are sure to be irate.

This would indicate that the Titans believe their problems on the defense were more the result of personnel, as opposed to being coaching or scheme related.

It will be interesting to see what they do on that side of the ball in free agency and via the draft.
