The Titans have hired Lou Spanos as linebackers coach, Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean reports.
Spanos has coached 17 years in the NFL. The past two seasons he was defensive coordinator at UCLA. Prior to that he was linebackers coach with the Redskins and Steelers.
Spanos worked with new Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt in Pittsburgh.
“He has put together a great body of work during his career,’’ Whisenhunt said. “In his extended time in Pittsburgh working with Dick LeBeau, he gained a tremendous amount of experience and contributed to some of the best defensive teams in the league. As defensive coordinator at UCLA, he again showed he is a good teacher and leader and we are lucky to have him working with our linebackers.”
