The Tennessee Titans are promoting tight ends coach Arthur Smith to offensive coordinator.

Smith replaces Matt LaFleur, who was named head coach of the Green Bay Packers.

\"I am excited for Arthur and for our team to be able to elevate a deserving coach,\" Mike Vrabel said in a statement. \"I was impressed throughout the season in gameplan meetings with his ideas, in-game with his understanding of situations and the ability to get the most out of his position group. We spent a good bit of time last week talking about this opportunity. He has a great deal of familiarity with our players and the continuity of the offense will allow our players to continue to develop and improve.\"

This past season, the Titans averaged 312.4 yards per game ranking 25th in the NFL.
