NASHVILLE – The Titans have hired Justin Outten as the team's new run game coordinator/running backs coach.
Outten spent last season as the offensive coordinator with the Denver Broncos, and he interviewed with several teams for their O.C. jobs earlier this offseason.
Outten called offensive plays the Broncos the final two games of the season after Nathaniel Hackett was fired as head coach.
Outten, who has 17 years of coaching experience, joined the Broncos last season after serving previously with the Green Bay Packers (2019-21) and Atlanta Falcons (2016-18).
In 2020, he coached tight end Robert Tonyan, who led (tied with Travis Kelce) NFL tight ends with a league-best 11 touchdown receptions. The Packers 2020 offense led the NFL in scoring (31.8), first in redzone offense, fifth in total yards per game and eighth in rushing offense. In 2019, his tight end group (Jimmy Graham, Marcedes Lewis, Tonyan, Jace Sternberger) recorded the most touchdowns (5) by Packers tight ends since 2010.
Prior to Atlanta, Outten coached at Westfield High School, where he served as assistant head coach, offensive coordinator and offensive line coach during his tenure.
A three-year letterwinner at Syracuse, Outten began his coaching career in 2007, serving as a graduate assistant for the Orange.
