The Tennessee Titans parted ways with secondary coach Marcus Robertson and assistant secondary coach Curtis Fuller on Wednesday.
Robertson, a Pro Bowl safety as a player, was a teammate of Munchak's with the Houston Oilers and had been on Jeff Fisher's coaching staff as defensive backs coach. He was the only defensive coach retained by Munchak in the same position when he assumed the head coaching duties last year.
Robertson was expected to be let go as part of that purge, but it was believed that the hiring of Jerry Gray as defensive coordinator played a role in Robertson being retained for the 2011 season.
Fuller spent just one season with the Titans, as the assistant secondary coach.
“I want to thank Marcus and Curtis for their time here. After meeting with the coordinators over the last couple of days, we decided to make this move today,” Munchak said in a release. “Letting Marcus go was not an easy thing. He spent so many great years with this organization as a player, front office employee and a coach. I respect both men, but I wanted to move in a different direction for both of these spots. The interview process might take some time, but we will find the right fits for the secondary room moving forward.”
The move signals an overhaul in the secondary where a number of players, including Cortland Finnegan, Michael Griffin, Chris Hope, Jordan Babineaux and Anthony Smith are all free agents. Not all of them are expected to return in 2012 either.
As for Gray, a source told TitanInsider that he interviewed for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coaching job on Wednesday.
