Nate Kaczor enters his seventh season as an NFL coach, his third with the Titans and second as special teams coach.

In his first season leading the Titans special teams, Tennessee ranked eighth in kickoff return average (24.9) and third in the NFL in punt return defense (6.0). Punter Brett Kern posted the second-highest net average of his career (39.7), a career-high number of punts placed inside the 20 (32) and a career-low number of touchbacks (2).

In 2011, his first campaign with the Titans, Kaczor was the assistant offensive line coach, assisting Bruce Matthews with the group.

Kaczor joined the Titans after spending four seasons (2008-11) with the Jacksonville Jaguars as assistant special teams coach. The Jaguars fielded some of the best special teams units each of those seasons, with Montell Owens earning the AFC special teams spot in the Pro Bowl each of Kaczor’s last two years (2010 & 2011). Additionally, Jacksonville’s units ranked in the top 10 in a number of categories, including punt return average allowed (2008-11), kickoff return average allowed (2010, 2008) and net punt return average (2010). Punter Adam Podlesh posted a then team-record 39.2 net average in 2010.

Prior to joining the NFL coaching ranks, Kaczor spent 17 years coaching in college. He spent two years at Louisiana-Monroe as co-offensive coordinator (2007) and tight ends coach (2006). The team ranked second in the Sun Belt conference in rushing offense in 2007 and averaged the most points scored (23.5) at the school since 1993.

Kaczor served two seasons (2004-05) as co-offensive coordinator/tight ends coach at Idaho. In 2005, the Vandals passing attack ranked 28th in the nation.

As the offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach at Nebraska-Kearney from 2000-03, the offense broke or tied 31 records and averaged 35 points per game and 442 yards of offense.

Kaczor began his coaching career at his alma mater, Utah State, in 1991. He would spend nine seasons as an assistant coach for the Aggies as the team won three conference championships and played in two bowl games. As a player at Utah State, Kaczor was a center who was a team captain and earned all-conference honors in 1989.

A native of Scott City, Kan., Kaczor and his wife, Angie, have two children, Kaylee and Micah.
