Titans name Bruce Matthews offensive line coach

Posted:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Tennessee Titans hired another one of their own, naming former Titan/Oiler and Hall of Famer Bruce Matthews as their new offensive line coach.

Matthews joins the Titans coaching staff after spending the last two seasons as an offensive assistant for the Houston Texans.

He re-joins the franchise where he was one of the most decorated offensive linemen to ever play in the NFL.

"I am very excited that we were able to work out something with Bruce," Titans head coach Mike Munchak said in a statement.  "He is a great friend, but he also is a great coach. It should be an easy transition for him and our players."

"For me this is an opportunity of a lifetime," Matthews said.  "It is such a unique opportunity to work with Mike because I think he will do a great job. It is just one of those things I couldn't pass up."

Matthews played 19 seasons for the Houston Oilers/Tennessee Titans, earning 14 consecutive Pro Bowl selections and nine first-team All Pro honors.

He played all five positions on the offensive line during his tenure with the team and was inducted to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2007, in his first year of eligibility.

Matthews replaces Munchak, who was named head coach earlier this week.
