Kubiak discusses Matthews’ departure

Posted by Nick Scurfield on February 10, 2011 – 5:20 pm

Hall of Famer Bruce Matthews was hired by the Tennessee Titans as their new offensive line coach on Wednesday, two years after he joined the NFL coaching ranks as an offensive assistant with the Texans.

Texans head coach Gary Kubiak said Thursday that he’s “very excited” for Matthews to take the next step in his career.

“When we got started a couple years ago, I can remember Bruce and I having lunch at Pappasito’s across the street, and he kind of wanted to get his feet wet in football,” Kubiak said. “Obviously he had a storied career as a player, so (we wanted) to give him an opportunity to kind of get started here. It seemed like the further he went along, the more he really enjoyed it, and all of a sudden his best friend (new Titans head coach Mike Munchak) gets an opportunity in this league, so what an opportunity for him. We hate to lose him, but we’re very, very happy for him and wish him the best.”

Kubiak plans to fill the vacancy on the coaching staff that was created by Matthews’ departure.

“I’ve had a couple of guys in here the last two days to interview for the defensive assistant job, and actually I like them both,” Kubiak said. “So I may try to even get both of them in here, but I want those guys to be able to help Joe (Marciano) with special teams. So we will fill both of those spots.”

Matthews hired by Titans

Posted by Nick Scurfield on February 9, 2011 – 4:21 pm

Texans offensive assistant Bruce Matthews has been hired by the Tennessee Titans as their new offensive line coach. The Titans have confirmed the move on Twitter.

Matthews and new Titans head coach Mike Munchak were longtime teammates with the Houston Oilers. They’re such close friends that they presented one another into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.

Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean says “there was never any doubt about this one. Matthews and Munchak are good friends and Matthews wasn’t going to pass up on opportunity.” Another factor was that Matthews’ son Kevin plays center for the Titans, as noted by John McClain of the Houston Chronicle.

Matthews was with the Texans for two seasons as an offensive assistant. He worked under offensive line coach John Benton and assistant offensive line coach Frank Pollack. Benton and Pollack remain on staff along with offensive coordinator Rick Dennison, who is heavily involved in the running game.

Report: Matthews expected to join Titans’ staff

Posted by Nick Scurfield on February 8, 2011 – 3:16 pm

The Tennessee Titans will interview Texans offensive assistant Bruce Matthews for an offensive line coaching position, according to Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean.

Wyatt writes that “it’s just a matter of time before the Titans hire Matthews,” noting Matthews’ friendship with new Titans coach Mike Munchak and the fact that Matthews’ son, Kevin, is a Titans offensive lineman.

Wyatt also reports that Matthews recently agreed to a contract extension with the Texans but didn’t sign it, which would mean the Titans do not need the Texans’ permission for an interview.

Matthews and Munchak played together for the Houston Oilers from 1983-93, and Matthews played under Munchak with the Oilers/Titans from 1994-2001. Matthews and Munchak also presented each other into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Matthews excited for potential matchup with son

Posted by Nick Scurfield on December 17, 2010 – 7:46 pm

Texans offensive assistant coach Bruce Matthews had a 19-year Hall of Fame career with the Oilers/Titans franchise, so he always looks forward to games against the Titans.

This Sunday’s game will have added significance. Matthews’ son Kevin, a rookie center for the Titans, was called up from the practice squad on Wednesday. He could play in his first NFL game on Sunday with his father Bruce watching from the opposing sideline.

“I’m excited for us as a team to go out there and execute and do well, and hopefully we’ll repeat what we did here in Houston a few weeks back,” Bruce Matthews said on Friday. “We’re still clinging to the slightest of playoff scenarios. But at the same time, I’m excited for my boy, too. I’m a very proud father.”

Matthews remembers when Kevin, then a small child, came with him to his first training camp in Nashville in the late 1990s.

“He ate like three bowls of chicken noodle soup the first night of camp, sat there for about five, 10 minutes and threw it up on the tray right there in front of the team,” Matthews said. “He was so embarrassed. There are still guys around the staff for the Titans that remember that.”

Kevin now plays for Titans offensive line coach Mike Munchak, who was Bruce’s coach and teammate for years in Houston and Nashville.

The elder Matthews said it was surreal to watch his son play in the preseason in the same Titans uniform that he once wore.

“It’s strange,” Matthews said. “Number 60… The last guy I played with who was number 60 was Kevin Long. So, that took a little adjustment. Then, just seeing him move around – among the Matthews’, at least my side of the family, there’s a lot of similarities physique-wise. You know, a little heavier through the midsection, the West Coast Matthews. But he moves around and it’s like, ‘Oh my gosh, looks like me a little.’ So that’s been pretty cool.”
