Ex-NFL Defensive Player of the Year Millard joins Titans' staff

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Titans coach Mike Munchak has hired two new assistants, adding another former Houston Oilers teammate and someone to focus on helping Tennessee's defense better rush the quarterback.

Keith Millard will be defensive assistant/pass-rush specialist, a position Munchak said Monday he thought about adding a year ago. Millard, the 1989 NFL Defensive Player of the Year, played eight seasons in the NFL and has coached the past nine. He was co-defensive line coach with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this season.

Steve Brown will be the assistant secondary coach. He spent the past nine years at the University of Kentucky, with four as defensive coordinator, and he also spent six seasons coaching with the St. Louis Rams, including a Super Bowl win in 2000 over the Titans.
