By TERESA M. WALKER, AP Sports Writer
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Titans head coach Mike Munchak has filled his second coordinator job by hiring Chris Palmer, a former head coach with the Cleveland Browns who spent last season coaching in the UFL.
The Titans announced the hiring Tuesday afternoon, shortly before Munchak is due to introduce his new defensive coordinator Jerry Gray. Palmer was head coach of the Browns for two seasons, and he also spent seven seasons in the AFC South as offensive coordinator with Jacksonville and Houston.
Palmer spent last season as head coach of the United Football League’s Hartford Colonels. He was quarterbacks coach with the New York Giants between 2007 and 2009 working with Eli Manning, including their Super Bowl run when Manning was named the game’s MVP.
