Of course I recognize the obvious counter-argument: Vince Young may be inconsistent and a tad immature, but he7’s better than anything we have now and, at least talent-wise, is better than anyone else out there on the market. And who knows, maybe Vince has finally learned his lesson. Maybe all he needs is a change of scenery. Maybe Leslie Frazier, Bill Musgrave and Craig Johnson can get more out of him than Tennessee did.
According to Judd Zulgad, Chip Scoggins, and KFAN-AM 1130 in Minneapolis, the Minnesota Vikings have hired former Tennessee Titans running backs coach Craig Johnson to serve as their new quarterbacks coach. If that sounds a bit weird, Johnson's only season as running backs coach of the Titans was 2010. From 2002 to 2009, he did indeed serve as the Titans' quarterbacks coach.
Craig Johnson is in his 11th season with the Titans and first as Assistant Head Coach – Running Backs. The previous eight years, he served as quarterbacks coach. He originally came to Tennessee as an offensive assistant/quality control coach and was promoted to quarterbacks coach prior to the 2002 season.
