The Tennessee Titans have hired Nick Eason as the team’s assistant defensive line coach. Last year, Eason was an intern coach and assisted the defensive staff for the Cleveland Browns.
Eason had a 10-year NFL career as a defensive lineman for the Cleveland Browns, Pittsburgh Steelers and Arizona Cardinals. He played in 117 games during his career, registering seven sacks.
He finished his NFL career playing for the Arizona Cardinals. He appeared in 32 games for the Cardinals and registered two sacks. He also played four seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers from 2007-10. While with the Steelers, Eason played in 55 games, including two Super Bowls.
Eason was originally a fourth-round selection by the Denver Broncos in 2003, but he injured his Achilles during training camp and spent the entire season on injured reserve. He started the following year on the Broncos active roster before he was waived and signed by the Browns, where he played for three years.
A native of Georgia, Eason played college football at Clemson and earned first-team All-ACC honors as a senior defensive tackle.
