Brett Maxie has accepted a job as Tennessee Titans defensive backs coach.
Maxie worked with Dave Campo in coaching the Cowboys’ defensive backs last season and was wanted by the Cowboys to return in a similar role, pairing with new DB coach Jerome Henderson. The Titans offered him the lead job last week and, after spending the weekend considering his options, Maxie went for the semi-promotion.
The move means that the entire defensive staff will essentially be Rob Ryan disciples, something that he had reportedly been pushing for since the end of the season. Maxie joins Mike Munchak’s defensive staff, which is led by fellow former DB Jerry Gray and veteran coach Dave McGinnis.
