Former Browns head coach Chris Palmer has been named the new offensive coordinator of the Titans.
Palmer, who led Cleveland during their first two expansion seasons (1999-2000), was most recently the head coach of the Hartford Colonials in the UFL last year. He has also spent time with the Giants, Cowboys, Texans, Jaguars and Patriots during his professional career. The coach earned acclaim for being the QB coach for the Giants from 2007-09, helping guide Eli Manning to a Super Bowl title.
He also was the wide receivers coach for the Oilers from 1990-92, where he likely interacted with current Titans head coach Mike Munchak, an offensive lineman on those Houston teams.
The way we see it
For all the praise Palmer received for his work with Manning, he received as much blame for his inability to make premier NFL QBs out of Tim Couch and David Carr, two other top picks he worked closely with. While the quarterback situation in Tennessee is unknown, the coach will have his hands full developing whomever is under center for the Titans.
