Lou Spanos Hired by Titans

UCLA defensive coordinator Lou Spanos was hired to be the Tennessee Titans linebackers' coach, the Titans announced in a statement Saturday...

Second year defensive coordinator Lou Spanos will be leaving UCLA to coach the linebackers for the Tennessee Titans, according to sources and a release from the Titans on Saturday.

Spanos, we had heard, was pursuing an NFL job. Sources have indicated that he never fully adjusted to coaching in college, and saw himself as a better fit in the NFL.

With the defensive coordinator job now vacant, UCLA could promote from within or opt to once again sift through the NFL ranks. We have heard, though, that UCLA has been telling recruits that linebackers coach/special teams coordinator Jeff Ulbrich will be the new defensive coordinator.

We'll have more on the candidates for the vacant position later.
