Titans DC Pees retires … again

Tennessee Titans defensive coordinator Dean Pees announced his retirement Monday, one day after the Titans’ loss in the AFC Championship Game.Pees, 70, previously retired from the Baltimore Ravens after the 2017 season. Bur he returned shortly thereafter to join Mike Vrabel’s Titans staff. Pees had coached Vrabel with the New England Patriots.”Players love him. I’ve talked him out of retirement once; I didn’t have the heart to do it a second time,” Vrabel told media members. “We’re lucky that he was here, that he chose to come here and be with us.”Pees coached 16 seasons in the NFL, with New England (2004-2009), Baltimore (2010-2017) and Tennessee (2018-19). He won two Super Bowls: XXXIX with New England and XLVII with Baltimore.”It is for real,” Pees was quoted as saying Monday on the Titans official website. “If I wanted to continue coaching it would be here. We’ve got a great staff, really enjoyed the guys, great working for Mike, I love our players. I’m done coaching.”In talking with my wife, we’ve decided it was time for me to hang up the cleats, so to speak. It’s been 47 years, and I told the team today 722 games – that’s a lot of games to coach. It’s time.”
