Former Titans OC Heimerdinger passes away

Photo by Andrew Strickert for Total TitansFormer Titans offensive coordinator Mike Heimerdinger has passed away after a battle with brain cancer.  He was diagnosed last year during the season.

Dinger served as the OC on two occasions, from 2000-2004 and 2008-2010.  He was also the OC for the Jets in 2005, under Herman Edwards.  That coaching staff was let go following an injury-plagued season and Dinger returned to Mike Shanahan’s Broncos, where he had previously worked as their receivers coach.

He was generally regarded as the best OC in the Tennessee era of the franchise.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Heimerdinger family.  R.I.P., Dinger.
