The Tennessee Titans have made some adjustments to their scouting staff.
Among the chanages is the promotion of former Chicago Bears general manager Tim Ruskell from being the Southeast region scout to the Titans cross-checker of all things east of the Mississippi River.
Mike Yowarsky, who has 21 years of NFL experience as a scout, will take over the Southeast region. He was with Tampa Bay the past two seasons.
Brandon Taylor, who had been the Titans Combine scout, will now scout the Midwest region for the franchise. Dale Thompson, who was a pro scout, now will be the Titans Combine scout.
The pro scouting staff has added James Kirkland, who joins the Titans from the Bears.
Dennis Polian, who previously was the special assistant to head coach Mike Munchak, now will be the assistant director of football administration/pro scout.
Additionally, Luke Steckel, son of former Titans offensive coordinator Les Steckel, has been hired as the special assistant to the head coach. Steckel spent four seasons in the same role for the Cleveland Browns.
