Tight Ends

Biography

Smith enters his sixth season on the Titans coaching staff, and his first full season in charge of the tight ends after taking over the group for the final nine games of the 2015 season. He was the assistant tight ends coach for 2014 and the first seven games of the 2015, assisting Mike Mularkey.

Last year, Titans tight ends accounted for 139 receptions for 1,572 yards and 10 touchdowns. TE Delanie Walker led the NFL in receptions by a tight end with 94 for 1,088 yards and earned his first trip to the Pro Bowl. Walker’s reception total and yardage were both franchise bests for a tight end.

In 2014, Smith assisted with the tight ends and saw Walker set a then-franchise mark for yards by a tight end with 890, which also was a personal best. Walker also set a career high for receptions in a season with 63 and posted the second-highest yardage total for a game by a franchise tight end with 155 yards against Philadelphia last year.
