Titans hire Spanos as linebackers coach
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Tennessee Titans have hired UCLA defensive coordinator Lou Spanos as Ken Whisenhunt's new linebackers coach.
The Titans announced the hiring Saturday.
Whisenhunt says they are lucky to have Spanos working with the linebackers because Spanos showed he is a good teacher and leader at UCLA and also helped with some of the NFL's best defenses in Pittsburgh with Dick LeBeau.
During Spanos' time in Pittsburgh, the Steelers ranked in the top 10 for total yards allowed 13 times. Spanos says it's an honor to work with Whisenhunt again.
