The Tennessee Titans finalized their on-field coaching staff for the 2023 season, announcing the hire of Justin Outten as their next running backs coach and run game coordinator Tuesday.
Outten comes to the Titans after one year as offensive coordinator for the Denver Broncos. Prior to 2022, Outten worked as the Green Bay Packers’ tight ends coach for three seasons. He broke into the NFL in 2016 as a coaching intern with the Atlanta Falcons and spent three years in Atlanta before getting to Green Bay.
Outten’s Broncos ranked last in the NFL in scoring last season, scoring just 16.9 points per game.

By bringing in Outten, the Titans have finished their rebuilding process with their offensive coaching staff. Since the end of last season, the Titans have promoted passing game coordinator Tim Kelly to offensive coordinator, hired Falcons’ quarterbacks coach Charles London to be quarterbacks coach and pass game coordinator, moved running backs coach Tony Dews to tight ends, moved quarterbacks coach Pat O’Hara and tight ends coach Luke Steckel to non-position-specific analyst positions and promoted assistant offensive line coach Jason Houghtaling to offensive line coach. Among on-field offensive coaches, only receivers coach Rob Moore retained the same role he had last season.
In addition to the changes on offense, the Titans also hired Chris Harris from the Washington Commanders as defensive pass game coordinator and cornerbacks coach, replacing Anthony Midget.
