The Tennessee Titans have made another coaching move today as they have promoted Nate Kaczor, the 2012 offensive line assistant, to coach the Titans special teams, according to Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean:
Another move within staff — the #Titans have moved Nate Kaczor to special teams coach. He was an offensive line assistant in 2012

This is the Titans second promotion from within the organization today, the first being special teams assistant Chet Parlavecchio, who was promoted to LB coach.
My two cents on all of that, is that it’s strange to see some much promotion from within when the Titans had such an off season this past year. The train of thought must be that most of the problems stemmed from those fired already (Chris Palmer, Frank Bush, John Zernhelt, Alan Lowry), or at least that these guys can obviously take the Titans in a better direction.
It’s getting to the point where you wonder if the Titans will bring in any fresh blood to this staff. They still have vacancies left by Dowell Loggains impending promotion to offensive coordinator and Mike Reinfeldt’s firing earlier this month.
I suspect both of those positions will be filled by outsiders, but your guess is as good as mine. There’s also the tight end coaching spot left vacant by the firing of John Zenhelt. That could very well be filled from within the Titans, especially considering the way the hiring process has been going.
As always, we can’t see what the Wizard behind the curtain is really doing, or if he even really is a real wizard. Sure hope he knows how to get us back to Kansas – er – I mean, the Super Bowl.
