Nashville, Tenn. The Tennessee Titans hired former Kansas City coach Gunther Cunningham as assistant head coach and linebackers coach Tuesday.
The Titans promoted linebackers coach Jim Schwartz to defensive coordinator last week, after Gregg Williams was hired by Buffalo as head coach.
Cunningham, fired by the Chiefs last month, had a 16-16 record over two seasons. He was defensive coordinator for Kansas City from 1995-98.
