Vince Young is a lucky guy, and teams in the NFL should look out for the Titans next year. Mike Heimerdinger, Denver’s assistant coach for the passing game is leaving the Broncos to become the offensive coordinator for the Titans. Although leaving good friend, Mike Shanahan, will be difficult for Heimerdinger, he wanted to take complete charge of an offense. (In Denver, Shanahan has the final call on the offense). Heimerdinger looks forward to working with Jeff Fisher and the entire Tennessee organization.
Jeremy Bates, 31, son of former Broncos assistant defensive coach, Jim Bates, will have his role expanded next season. In 2007, he coached the QB’s and the receivers. Shanahan will also take a bigger role in coaching the offense in the off-season.
