The Titans' decision to sue University of Southern California and its head coach, Lane Kiffin, because of the circumstances surrounding the hiring of Titans RB coach Kennedy Pola as USC's offensive coordinator has played well in Nashville, the way we hear it. Kiffin, who left the University of Tennessee after just one season as head coach, is not especially beloved by some in his former state. Regardless how the lawsuit is resolved, the Titans were forced to reshuffle their coaching staff in the wake of Pola's departure. Head coach Jeff Fisher moved Craig Johnson, the club's QB coach for the past nine years, into Pola's role and promoted quality-control coach Dowell Loggains to QB/passing game coach. Johnson has four years experience coaching running backs at the collegiate level but hasn't coached the position since 1988 with Rutgers. The staff changes, Fisher said in a team-issued statement Wednesday, are a "plan that will work well both from an offensive staff standpoint and in the best interest for the players and team."
