Overall, Wright, Nate Washington and Kenny Britt finished 1-2-3 as the team’s leading pass catchers with a combined 155 receptions for 12 touchdowns.

In 2011, Ragone brought energy and enthusiasm to the practice field in his first season that translated to career best seasons for four members of his receiving corps as they were relied upon in the absence of an injured Britt. Nate Washington flourished in his seventh NFL season by recording his first 1,000-yard receiving year (74 receptions and 1,023 yards). Additionally, Lavelle Hawkins, Damian Williams and Marc Mariani each set person best receiving numbers.

Ragone joined the Titans after spending one season with the United Football League’s Hartford Colonials as the quarterbacks coach. At Hartford, the team’s quarterback, Josh McCown, led the league in passer rating and touchdown passes.

Ragone spent three seasons as an NFL quarterback from 2003-05 with the Texans. In the spring of 2005, he also spent time in NFL Europe with the Berlin Thunder and earned league Offensive MVP honors for his performance. He set an NFLEL record by throwing 174 consecutive passes without an interception and led the league in passer rating (97.5). He was originally a third-round selection by Houston in the 2003 NFL Draft after finishing his career at Louisville, where he was a three-time Conference USA Offensive Player of the Year and led his team to three consecutive bowl games.

Raised in Cleveland, Ohio, Ragone was an All-State selection at St. Ignatius High School. He and his wife, Marju, have two children, Isabella and Anderson.
