Report: Dick LeBeau to join Tennessee Titans staff


After 13 seasons as Pittsburgh Steelers defensive coordinator, legendary coach Dick LeBeau has found a new home in Nashville.

LeBeau is expected to be named assistant head coach/defense of the Tennessee Titans, reports Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean.

The 77-year-old Hall of Famer teamed with Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt as well as defensive coordinator Ray Horton for multiple seasons in Pittsburgh last decade.

Although Horton will retain his title, LeBeau will oversee the defense, per Wyatt. That arrangement should be familiar to both coaches. Horton was LeBeau's right-hand man as secondary coach from 2004-2010.

The Titans have added impressive brainpower on the defensive side of the ball. Now they need to upgrade the talent level.
