Apparently the Tennessee Titans aren’t finished making moves on the non-player side of operations as well this off season. According to @footballscoop, Luke Steckel has joined the Titans staff in a role yet to be known.
We hear the Titans have hired Luke Steckel who was with the Browns the past 4 seasons. Bright young coach, well liked in the profession

Luke Steckel has been with the Cleveland Browns organization for the past four years. His most recent job title was Assistant To The Head Coach under Pat Shurmer. He acted as a go-between for Shurmer and the rest of the coaching staff to all other departments in the Browns organization. According to ClevelandBrowns.com, he also was involved on the defensive side of the ball, where he assisted in “playbook composition, scouting reports, film breakdown, and practice drills”.
Luke Steckel’s father is Les Steckel, the former offensive coordinator for the Houston Oilers from 1997-1999.
I’m not sure what the Titans have planned for Luke. From digging around it seems this is much more than a hey-your-dad-worked-for-us hire. His responsibilities at the Browns were vast and it seems that the Titans organization isn’t finished improving this year. They’re not just bringing in fresh faces and competition on the player personnel side, but on the management side of the operation as well.
