One of the great people in this business is leaving the Titans today.
Senior assistant coach Dave McGinnis is joining former Titans head coach Jeff Fisher’s staff in St. Louis as assistant head coach. McGinnis has been with the Titans since 2004 when he signed on as linebackers coach.
Like most coaches, McGinnis burned the midnight oil here at Baptist Sports Park. But he was never too busy to talk to staff members, getting to know each of them and often taking time to simply stop by and say hello. His door was always open.
He would ask about your family, reminisce and tell stories from his 27 years in the NFL — or even offer up a great restaurant tip in a town you might be visiting — all the while getting his players prepared for the upcoming game.
McGinnis told The Tennessean he’ll miss the people within the organization and the greater Nashville community.
“It’s hard to leave Nashville and the Titans organization. I had eight great years here, seven with Jeff, and this past year with Coach (Mike) Munchak, and it couldn’t have been better. The people in this organization and the city, everyone has treated me fabulously,” he said.
“It was just another blessing in my 27 years in the NFL. I thoroughly enjoyed everything, and whatever little bit I was able to contribute, I am grateful for.”
And the Titans are equally grateful for the impact he made and relationships he built during his time here.
