Jerry Gray's caps whirlwind month with job as Tennessee Titans' defensive coordinator

By Cindy Boren

Over the weekend, Jerry Gray landed a job as defensive coordinator of the Tennessee Titans -- his third gig since Jan. 16.

He'd previously been the model of longevity, coaching with the Redskins from 2006 through 2009 and with the Seahawks last season until Jan. 16, when they lost to the Chicago Bears in a playoff game. The next day, he became the assistant head coach and secondary coach at the University of Texas, his alma mater. Twenty-four days later, he was joining Mike Munchak's staff in Nashville.

"I know the timing of this isn't ideal," Gray said in a statement, "but this was something I couldn't turn down."

Gray has a history with the Oilers/Titans, for whom he was a quality control coach for two years and defensive backs coach for another two. Tennessee was the NFL's top-ranked pass defense and total defense in 2000.

"I think the fact he's been here before and that this is something he's familiar with and believes in is a positive," Munchak told the Tennessean. "Also if there is a situation with the lockout [where offseason preparation is shortened], he'll be a great guy to have in place."
