Got Cut
Default Chuck Cecil will not be retained by Titans

Potential Candidate for DC?

Almost three weeks since the end of the regular season, coaches are still being let go.

Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean reports Titans defensive coordinator Chuck Cecil has been informed he will not be brought back by the team. It comes as a bit of a surprise because of the timing and the overall improvement the Titans defense made in 2010.

The Titans gave up a lot of yards, but were 15th in points allowed and above average in yards-per-play allowed against the pass and run. Tennessee’s problem: Their defense was on the field for 222 more plays than their inept offense.

Here's what he thinks of that:

Chuck Cecil is in his 10th season as a Titans coach and his second as defensive coordinator.

In his first season at the controls, Cecil continued the tradition of great run defense, which finished the season 11th in the NFL, while dealing with a number of injuries early and late in the season. Tennessee ranked eighth in the league in interceptions (20) and second in interceptions returned for touchdown (4). Over the last three years, Tennessee ranks third in the NFL in interceptions (62) behind Green Bay and Baltimore. Over last 10 games of the season, the Titans earned an 8-2 record as the defense ranked 11th in the league in scoring defense over that period.

In 2008, as the secondary coach, Cecil oversaw a group that developed into one finest in the NFL, as three of the four players (Finnegan, Hope, Griffin) were invited to the Pro Bowl for the first time in their careers. It was the first time in franchise history that three players from the secondary represented the team in the Pro Bowl. Overall, the defensive backs collected 19 interceptions, which ranked second (Green Bay) in the NFL in interceptions by a secondary. The Titans ranked ninth in pass defense and seventh in total defense.

In 2007, the secondary recorded 14 interceptions and the team total of 22 ranked second in the NFL. Rookie safety Michael Griffin and second-year cornerback Cortland Finnegan took significant strides and solidified their starting roles. Griffin recorded three interceptions, the most by a Titans/Oilers rookie safety since Bubba McDowell recorded four in 1989.
In his time coaching safeties (2004-06), Cecil oversaw the transition of the Titans safeties from a traditional "in the box" strong safety and deep free safety into a system that requires an all-round player that can play either spot and creates a defense that is more flexible. Under his direction, safety Chris Hope emerged as a consistent playmaker and the undisputed leader of the Titans secondary. He registered career highs in tackles (128) and interceptions (5) in 2006.

Cecil originally joined the Titans coaching staff as defensive assistant coach in 2001 and was promoted in 2004, to work with the safeties and nickel backs.
As a player, Cecil was known for his thunderous tackling and aggressive style during his time as a safety for the Green Bay Packers (1988-92), Phoenix Cardinals (1993) and Houston Oilers (1995). Cecil earned a trip to the Pro Bowl and garnered All-Madden status in 1992 after four interceptions and 102 stops. In 95 career games he totaled 400 tackles and 16 interceptions. He was originally drafted by the Packers in the fourth round (89th overall) of the 1988 NFL Draft.

Initially a walk-on for the University of Arizona football team, Cecil earned consensus All-America and Pac-10 Defensive Player of the Year honors after a nine-interception senior season. As he left the college game, Cecil owned the career interception record in the Pac-10 with 21. In 2009, he was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame and was inducted into the Wildcats' Sports Hall of Fame in 1993. He also spent two seasons (1999-2000) as a television analyst for the University of Arizona football games.
A California native, Cecil (11/8/64) was an avid golfer who played a number of events on the Celebrity Golf Tour. Cecil and his wife, Carrie, have a daughter, Charli (5), and reside in Nashville.

Cecil is an a-hole and incompetent. The Titans were number 2 in the league in 2008 with Schwarz, dropped to 25 2009 with Cecil and improved to 14 in 2010. Just say no.

No because his defensive players are dirty. Colin finnegen(sp?) should be punished repeadetly by a dc. Obviously it's ok with chuck.

would not mind it at all...gets the most out of his d line, and his guys play hard for him...he had 1 guy on his team who plays "dirty" so you classify him as dirty, however, he definatley got a lot out of the talent that he had...would not be mad at all if this was the move.


edit: *** people complaining about fairley being dirty now you call cecil dirty...hell ill call it a little tanasity and love for the game, i think both of these guys would translate to a whole different attitude on the defensive side of the ball. perhaps one with a little pride.

Cecil was basically fined out of the league as a player, labeled as a headhunter and known for his huge hits. I loved him as a player.

Was called dirty in his day.

What's going on in Tennessee? They let their very highly thought of DL coach make a lateral move to the Eagles this week as well. Eagles were willing to pay more.

You think Haynesworth is the difference between the 2nd best and the 7th worst defense? because the Redskins disagree with you.

Well, that's not really a fair comparison. When Haynesworth was healthy and motivated he was the best defensive player in the league. Incredibly disruptive. For the Redskins he wasn't healthy or motivated and was only disruptive off the field.

They made the mistake of keeping Jeff Fisher, then compounded the mistake by not extending his contract past 2011. That means that none of his assistants will have contracts for more than 1 year, so teams like Philadelphia can offer 3 year deals and cherry pick his best assistants.

Next year, the Titans are going to realize they waited one year too long to fire Fisher.

I'm glad im not the only one thinking like that. Enough of this nice guy Bull**** defense, it hasn't worked. This is the NFL, it's nasty out there, and I think its time we have a nasty defense

Losing Haynesworth and Van Den Bosch would have something to do with that.

No...he has no class because he is a cheap-shot artist. He was as a player, and is it any coincidence that the Titan's are considered the dirtiest team in the league?

As a player for the Cardinals.....he was known for spearing....he even made an SI cover for that reason.

this defense definitely needs an attitude... if they get a rep for being "dirty, cheap, no-good, scum sucking, a-holes" but the Broncos are in the playoffs, I can live with that.

They were 5th in the league in sacks in 2008 with both those players, they were 8th this year (the difference was 4 sacks), that still doesn't explain the drop from 2nd in point to 14th.

No. And to those arguing we need more attitude, you're wrong. We need sound fundamentals and Good players, not dick heads who cause a lot of penalties and still suck on defense.
