Chris Palmer Named Offensive Coordinator For Tennessee Titans

Well, you can forget about Chris Palmer returning to the New York Giants as quarterbacks coach. Or, in the dream scenario for some of you, as offensive coordinator in place of Kevin Gilbride.

Palmer has been hired by the Tennessee Titans to be their offensive coordinator.

Palmer was Giants quarterbacks coach from January of 2007 to January of 2010. He "retired" from the Giants only to surface as head coach/general manager of the Hartford Colonials in the United Football League.

Palmer was previously head coach of the Cleveland Browns, posting a 5-27 record in 1999 and 2000, and had previously been offensive coordinator with the Houston Oilers and under Tom Coughlin in Jacksonville.

There was thought when Palmer left the Giants for the UFL that his ultimate goal was a return to the NFL as either a head coach or coordinator. The Titans have now given him that larger role.
