Tennessee made one coaching change on Monday as it brought in Charlton Warren to coach defensive backs, replacing Willie Martinez.
But Charlton could be taking over another unit, as Warren’s Twitter bio indicates that he will also be the Volunteers special teams coordinator.
Tennessee already has a special teams coordinator in the form of tight ends coach Larry Scott. The former interim head coach at Miami is in the running to be the Volunteers new offensive coordinator after Mike DeBord took the offensive coordinator opening at Indiana.
Warren was officially announced as the program’s defensive backs coach, but the school’s statement made no mention of special teams coordinator.
We would like to welcome Coach Warren, his wife, Jocelyn, and their three children to the Tennessee family,” Tennessee head coach Butch Jones said in a release. “Coach Warren is a passionate, knowledgeable and driven football coach that has an outstanding history of developing defensive backs on the collegiate level. He also has a great reputation as one of the top recruiters in the country with strong ties to our recruiting areas.
For the second season in a row, Tennessee went 9-4. The Volunteers ended their season with a win against Nebraska in the Music City Bowl.
