As you may have read on this blog, Dallas Cowboys’ secondary coach Brett Maxie interviewed with the Tennessee Titans last week for a similar role in Nashville. Apparently, that interview went well.
Tennessee offered Maxie a job this week, and he took it, opting to leave Dallas--and a role splitting the Cowboys’ secondary coaching duties with the newly hired Jerome Henderson much in the way he served with Dave Campo in years before--for a more autonomous role in Tennessee.
Maxie, who will replace Marcus Robertson as the Titans’ secondary coach, expressed his excitement over the new opportunity in a statement this week.
“I am really excited about this opportunity and the chance to work with Mike Munchak and Jerry Gray,” Maxie said, per ESPN Dallas. “I have played and coached against each of these men and I have great respect for what they are all about and what they have accomplished. Mike has an impeccable reputation as a coach and I like what I heard about how he runs his team. Jerry and I came into the league as players at the same time and our teams battled each other in the old NFC West and I have admired his work as a coach through the years.”
