As fans of this great NFL game, we come from different backgrounds, social structures, religions, and countries, but typically, when the Tennessee Titans take the field for a football, none of us feel very different from one another. We’re all people, and we all love the two-tone blue.

Sure, there have been hard times, but when you see another Derrick Henry stiff-arm or the philanthropy of guys that we cheer for week-in and week-out basis, it’s hard not to smile. Recently, the Titans announced changes to their scouting department, and in doing so, fans were given another reason to puff their chests out.

Tennessee Titans continue to diversify their front office.

Once again, the Titans have proven that they’re one of the forward-thinking franchises in the NFL as team insider Jim Wyatt announced changes to their staff on June 1st. One of the highlights was the hiring of Mical Johnson.

Tennessee has had numerous women serving in important roles for quite some time, but Johnson is the first woman to work in Tennessee’s scouting department and enjoy a full-time role.

Here’s a little more on this for you Tennessee Titans fans out there.

In 2020, Johnson came to Nashville as part of the Amy Adams Strunk Women in Football Program, one that’s named for Amy Adams Strunk, daughter of the late Bud Adams and controlling owner of the Tennessee Titans. Johnson spent the 2020 season as an intern but will now be working with all aspects of the team’s scouting operations.

Johnson also attended Belmont University, where she was a standout on their tennis team.

The Titans also announced the promotion of both Blaise Taylor and Matt Miller, two very talented scouting minds that previously served as scouting assistants. Taylor will scout at the professional level while Miller will scour the landscape at the collegiate level.

For the 2021-2022 season, Kylan Butler comes to the Titans organization as Tennessee’s Bill Walsh Offensive Fellowship Coach. He was formerly an associate head coach at Morehead State University. Kiara Mayo replaces Mical Johnson as she will enter the Women in Football Program for 2021.

Great work by this Tennessee Titans organization. As always, they keep giving us all more reasons to cheer for this great franchise.
