Chandler HenleyRole: Quality Control CoachNFL Coaching Experience: NonePositions Coached: NoneCollegiate Coaching Experience:Offensive Recruiting/Graduate Assistant (Vanderbilt Wesley Woodyard Jersey , 2012-2013), Assistant Quarterbacks Coach (2014), Tight Ends Coach (Yale, 2015-2017)Coaching Track RecordQuality Control Coach Chandler Henley will make his professional coaching debut on the Titans sidelines in 2018. Henley, who doesn’t boast a lengthy coaching resume, brings experience both as a player and a coach. He built a reputation during his stint as a college coach for his ability to lead Cheap Malcolm Butler Jersey , connect with players and for his skills as a recruiter. He takes on a very important - yet undervalued - role with the Titans as the QC coach on the offensive side of the ball. The QC position involves immersing one’s self in tape, statistics and data research that will help prepare a team for practice leading up to a game. A detailed overview of the importance of the QC position can be found here.It will be a massive undertaking and, for some, would be too intimidating.Henley, however, can handle it. Having an Ivy League background suggests that Henley obtains the mental faculties required to compartmentalize Womens Wesley Woodyard Jersey , digest and dissect the workload that will be coming his way. Brought in because of his ability to lead on the field and from the sidelines, Henley fits right in with the new coaching additions. As a player, he led his team in multiple categories. As a coach, he was a person players felt comfortable with going to for guidance. His rapport-building with the players enabled him to avoid being hesitant at times when coaching up was necessary.It is Henley that will spend his nights buried in film, isolating defensive looks and relaying those looks to the scout defense in order to help the offense prepare for their opponents on a week to week basis. Understanding defensive designs the offense will face, having a firm grasp of how the offense can expose or exploit deficiencies in those designs and finding a way to put together the right sample to use during game week will be a huge chunk of Henley’s responsibilities. The level of preparedness the Titans offense displays on Sunday will be directly correlated to the work put in by Henley throughout the week. The NFL once again tweaked its kickoff rules this offseason http://www.titansfootballauthentics.com/logan-ryan-jersey-authentic , but this time the result may be different: Kickoff returners are getting an advantage.At least, that’s how it looks from Week One of the regular season. Kickoff returns across the NFL this week have averaged 23.5 yards. Last season, across the NFL, all kickoff returns averaged just 21.6 yards. And there were two kickoff return touchdowns yesterday in just 13 games. Last year there were seven kickoff return touchdowns all season, in 256 games.Of course, one week is too small a sample size to draw any sweeping conclusions. It’s possible this was just random variation http://www.titansfootballauthentics.com/jayon-brown-jersey-authentic , and both kickoff return touchdowns came in the Titans-Dolphins game after a long lightning delay, when it’s possible that players on the kick coverage unit had tightened up during the rest period and were struggling to run at full speed.But the new rules would seem to benefit returners, particularly the rule against the coverage players getting a running start before the ball is kicked. And the stats from Week One are an indication that returners are, in fact, taking advantage.
