According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Chuck Cecil, an assistant under Fisher with the Tennessee Titans and a former Pro Bowl safety as a player, will become the team’s secondary coach.
He spent his first eight seasons as a coach on Fisher’s Titans staff working with the secondary. In 2009, Cecil replaced Jim Schwartz as defensive coordinator after Schwartz took the Detroit Lions’ head-coaching job.
Cecil’s Titans finished 11th in the league in run defense and eighth in interceptions, including four returned for touchdowns, during his first year as DC. Cecil wasn’t retained after the defense finished 26th in total defense and 29th in passing defense in 2010.
Cecil was known as one of the biggest hitters during his seven year playing career with Green Bay, Arizona and the Houston Oilers. Prior to his NFL career, the 47 year old Cecil, was an All-American safety at the University of Arizona.
