NFL News: Tennessee Cut Defensive Coordinator Chuck Cecil

Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean is reporting that the Tennessee Titans and Jeff Fisher have made the decision to relieve defensive coordinator Chuck Cecil of his duties. The news comes as a bit of shock since the Titans just lost Jim Washburn to the Philadelphia Eagles.

Cecil is known for his fiery persona and recent sideline antics that end up costing him fairly large amount of money.

“Nothing surprises you in this business. You just have to move on. That’s life in the NFL,” said Cecil.

In regards to the decision coming from Jeff Fisher Cecil said that “as good a friends as we are, sometimes you have to put the professional things first and it is a profession.”

The Titans will have look to rebuild they staff in the coming days but as of know there hasn’t been any mention of who’s in line to replace Cecil.
