NASHVILLE, TENN. (AP) - Titans coach Mike Munchak has hired Tracy Rocker as Tennessee’s new defensive line coach.

Rocker replaces Jim Washburn, who left to take over the defensive line at Philadelphia.

The 17-year collegiate coaching veteran spent the last two seasons at Auburn, his alma mater, developing Lombardi Award winner and All-American defensive tackle Nick Fairley during the Tigers’ 2010 national championship season.

This will be Rocker’s first return to the NFL since playing for the Washington Redskins from 1989-90 and his two summers spent in the NFL’s Minority Internship Program.

Munchak has been busy filling out his staff since being hired Feb. 7. He’s hired defensive line coach Bruce Matthews, defensive coordinator Jim Gray and offensive coordinator Chris Palmer.
