Well Ken Whisenhunt is in town, and he is bringing somebody with him. The Titans hired San Diego Chargers tight ends coach, Jason Michael, as the offensive coordinator. Whisenhunt worked with Michael while he was with the Chargers as their offensive coordinator.
“Jason really impresses me with his knowledge of the run and pass game and he was a big part of putting together our plans last year in San Diego,” Whisenhunt said of Michael in a statement issued by the Titans. “He is very familiar with the offensive system that we want to implement here, which includes bits and pieces from a number of offensive systems. He is intelligent and a good communicator. He was responsible for presenting a couple of game-plan packages to our offense each week and he was impressive.”
Michael has spent time as an assistant coach with the New York Jets, San Francisco 49ers, and Oakland Raiders. The 35-year-old Michael coached the tight ends for three seasons in San Diego, leaving his impression on the right person to land him his new job.
