Former Nebraska safeties and special teams coach Scott Booker will be joining the coaching staff of the NFL’s Tennessee Titans, according to a report by ESPN’s Adam Rittenberg.
Rittenberg broke the news on Twitter on Wednesday. Here is his tweet:
Am told Scott Booker, who coached safeties/special teams at #Nebraska last year before heading to Miami (Ohio) in January, is joining the #TennesseeTitans staff as a defensive assistant, working primarily with the secondary. Booker has coached on both sides of the ball.

Booker, who spent one season as an assistant at Nebraska in 2017, took a job with Miami (Ohio) in late January as the team’s wide receivers coach. However, that partnership with sort lived, as he will now join the staff of Mike Vrabel in Tennessee as a defensive assistant working primarily with the secondary.
Prior to Nebraksa, Booker coached at Notre Dame from 2010-16, serving as an offensive intern for the first two years before becoming the team’s tight ends and special teams coach. In 2009, Booker coached at Western Kentucky, where he worked with the secondary. Booker began his coaching career with Kent State in 2003 as a graduate assistant. He would coach at Kent State until 2008, serving as the defensive backs coach.
