Jerry Gray Reportedly Close To Becoming Tennessee Titans Defensive Coordinator

Former Seattle Seahawks secondary coach Jerry Gray has had a whirlwind last month. Gray left the Seahawks in January to join Mack Brown's staff at Texas, but that foray back into the college ranks appears to be short-lived. Before ever calling a play at Texas, Gray appears to be nearing a deal with the Tennessee Titans to become new head coach Mike Munchak.

Gray is in Tennessee today, and was reportedly offered the job. Thus far, there have been conflicting reports about Gray's interest in the job, with the Austin-Statesman reporting two different sources gave them two different answers.

One source familiar with the situation says Gray has indicated he's staying at Texas, his alma mater where he was a two-time consensus All-American defensive back. But another source said the matter is still up in the air

The Titans are apparently hot after Gray and, according to Orange Blood's Chip Brown, have upped the ante in contract negotiations.

Should Gray agree to become the Titans' defensive coordinator, he'll have gone from secondary coach in Seattle to defensive backs coach at Texas to a defensive coordinator in Tennessee, all within a month's span.
