The Titans coaching staff is really starting to take shape (they hired Jerry Gray as their new defensive coordinator just a few days ago), as the team announced Tuesday that Chris Palmer will be their new offensive coordinator.

"I was able to talk to a number of candidates and Chris was the coach who fit what I was looking for," Titans coach Mike Munchak said in a team-issued release. "Chris has a wealth of experience as a coordinator and a coach.

"He is a great teacher of the game and has been around a variety of good coaches and winning football programs. He has helped develop many quarterbacks and understands what that process is like, as he raised their games to a high level over time."

Palmer, the former head coach for the UFL's Hartford Colonials, was in the NFL from 1990 (starting with the Houston Oilers) through 2009 before leaving for the a year in the UFL.

He's also been on two coaching staffs that went to the Super Bowl -- he was the quarterbacks coach for the Giants in 2007 and the Patriots in 2006.

Palmer also served as the first "new Browns" head coach, taking over the team in 1999 following the original franchise's move to Baltimore.

Palmer is one of the best quarterback coaches in the NFL.... He is an offensive minded coach.... Eli Manning made his greatest strides when Palmer was his coach. Titans will need a offensive coordinator that will help develop their new quarterback....likely Blain gabbert by the way. Palmer is a good coordinator, but the best with QB's.

I find it odd that CBS is using Kevin Gilbride's picture in this article. And why can't Brian Billick get a job in the league anymore? He was a great OC in Minnesota.

Hmmmm, I want to check out his experience and his philosophies. Up to now, Munch has made good decisions on new hires.
