77 year old Dick LeBeau will either be on the sideline or in the pressbox again this season. It will be with the Tennessee Titans in 2015. The London, Ohio native played for the Ohio State Buckeyes under Woody Hayes and was on the 1957 National Championship team. LeBeau was drafted by the Cleveland Browns but was cut. The defensive back went on to have a great career with the Detroit Lions from 1959-1972. LeBeau got inducted in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2010, and the entire Pittsburgh Steelers team was in attendance. Many former NFL players believe LeBeau will attract free agents to the Tennessee Titans shortly. He just knows how to deal with the young ego. LeBeau was the head coach of the Cincinnati Bengals from 2000-2003, before going back to his familiar role as defensive backs coach and defensive coordinator.
Dick LeBeau was in charge of the Pittsburgh Steelers defense from 2004-2014 and had great success in “WESTERN PENNSYLVANIA”. Former Steelers cornerback Ike Taylor believes players will follow the legend to the Titans. Taylor say’s LeBeau is the Coach K of the NFL and many other former players agree. The Titans need all of the help they can get, via free agency or whatever. LeBeau will be the defensive coordinator/assistant head coach. Titans current D-Coordinator Ray Horton is putting his ego aside and welcomes the knowledge that LeBeau brings to the organization. Horton installed a similar system in Tennessee, and now it will be refined even more. The Tennessee Titans were 3-12-1 on NFL Point Spread Picks last season, going over the betting odds total six times and staying under the betting odds total in in ten times last season.
Titans Head Coach Ken Whisenhunt worked with LeBeau for six years in the “STEEL CITY”. The 77-year old chose Tennessee over Arizona due to its proximity to the State of Ohio, especially the Cincinnati area.
Pittsburgh’s loss is the Titans gain. The Steelers organization felt is in the best interest of both parties to go their separate way. The Rooney family is one of the most loyal in professional sports. There is still a mutual respect between the organization and LeBeau. Steelers Head Coach Mike Tomlin feels the same way and is grateful for gaining knowledge from the icon. Steelers players and fans also wish LeBeau the best with his new position. The Tennesse Titans defense will have discipline in the upcoming season. The addition of the 77-year old, the Titans will become a popular destination for players at the end of the career who have something left in the tank. The Tennessee Titans ownership headed by the Bud Adams family is also thrilled to have a respectable man in Nashville. The Titans defense will be one of the best in the American Football Conference.
