NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) The Tennessee Titans are back to just one man running their defense, and Dick LeBeau is ready to speak up once again.
LeBeau worked as Tennessee's assistant head coach in charge of the defense last season, deferring to coordinator Ray Horton who called the plays. Horton left to be defensive coordinator in Cleveland after the Titans name Mike Mularkey head coach hours after Horton interviewed for the same job. Mularkey kept LeBeau as assistant head coach and defensive coordinator.
The Pro Football Hall of Fame cornerback didn't speak up much last season, believing a defense needs to hear one voice. LeBeau said Thursday he is excited to be able to talk much more.
