The Titans and new head coach Mike Vrabel have interest in hiring Packers cornerbacks coach Darren Perry, according to Paul Kuharsky of PaulKuharsky.com (Twitter link). While it’s unclear exactly what title Perry would potentially hold, Tennessee may want him to serve as defensive coordinator, per Kuharsky.
Perry, 49, was one of three internal candidates to interview for the vacant Green Bay defensive coordinator job earlier this offseason, but was passed over in favor of former Browns head coach Mike Pettine. He’s since interviewed for an assistant position with the Texans, but reports have indicated Perry could choose to stay with the Packers. Perry, who enjoyed a nine-year playing career, joined the coaching ranks in 2002 and has spent time in Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, and Oakland.
If hired, Perry would replace former Titans defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau, whom Tennessee parted ways with on Sunday. Under LeBeau’s leadership in 2017, the Titans ranked 13th in yards, 17th in scoring, and 21st defensive DVOA,
