The Titans have made a notable addition to their coaching staff by bringing in Dennard Wilson, who previously served as the defensive backs coach for the Ravens. The move was reported by Jordan Schultz of Bleacher Report. Wilson, 41, had attracted interest from other teams such as the Packers, Rams, and Giants before ultimately choosing to join the Titans.
Wilson recently completed his first season as the secondary coach for the Baltimore Ravens. His coaching experience includes a tenure with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2021, where he initially served as the defensive backs coach and later took on additional responsibilities as the defensive passing game coordinator in 2022. His contributions played a role in the Eagles reaching Super Bowl LVII.
Starting his coaching career with the Rams in 2012 as a quality control coach, Wilson steadily climbed the ranks and eventually assumed the position of defensive backs coach in 2015. His coaching journey also included a stint with the New York Jets from 2017 to 2020, where he served as the defensive backs coach and took on passing game coordinator duties in 2019.
Notably, there is a pre-existing connection between Dennard Wilson and Titans General Manager Ran Carthon, as they had previously worked together during their time with the Rams.
On the other side, the Ravens have experienced significant changes this week, losing director of player personnel Joe Hortiz to the Chargers as their new General Manager and seeing defensive coordinator Mike Macdonald take on the head coaching role with the Seahawks.
