The Tennessee Titans on Thursday named former New Orleans Saints head coach Jim Haslett as their inside linebackers coach.
Haslett, 64, has been coaching in the NFL since 1993 and most recently served as the linebackers coach for the Cincinnati Bengals from 2016-18.
He compiled a 45-51 record in six seasons with the Saints (2000-05) and was 2-10 as the interim head coach for the St. Louis Rams in 2008.
Titans head coach Mike Vrabel played linebacker in Pittsburgh when Haslett was the Steelers’ defensive coordinator from 1997-99.
“Adding quality coaches to our staff has always been my priority with the ability to teach, develop and inspire,” Vrabel said. “I have known Jim (Haslett) since my rookie season at Pittsburgh and was impressed with how he taught and developed the players on our defense. Over his career, he has experience and success as a head coach, defensive coordinator and linebacker coach.”
Haslett was also the defensive coordinator for the Washington Redskins (2010-14), Rams (2006-08) and Saints (1996).
The Titans also changed titles for several returning coaches. Ryan Crow is the assistant special teams coach, Matt Edwards is a defensive assistant and Scott Booker will coach the safeties.
