Chris Johnson Wants Titans To Bring Back RB Coach Earnest Byner
Running back Chris Johnson rushed for a career-best 2,006 yards in 2009.
He’d like to see the Titans hire the man who coached him that season: Earnest Byner.
“I wish we’d bring back Earnest,” Johnson said. “We had a lot of success with Earnest. I think that would be great.”
Byner is currently running backs coach with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He was an assistant with the Titans during Johnson’s first two years in the NFL (2008-09). In 2009, Johnson became the sixth running back in NFL history to topple 2,000 yards.
Former Titans coach Jeff Fisher relieved Byner of his duties after the ’09 season, however, and the position has changed hands several times since.
