He started coaching at his alma mater Saginaw Valley State where he played quarterback. He also coached at Central Michigan and Northern Michigan.

The Titans interviewed Houston Texans defensive coordinator Mike Vrabel and Carolina Panthers defensive coordinator Steve Wilks on Thursday to start their search to replace Mike Mularkey, who was fired Monday after going 21-22 and lead the franchise to their first playoff win in 14 years.
