Tucker Takes Off For Titans

Just days after being named to the 2015 Saskatchewan Roughrider coaching staff Jason Tucker has resigned from the Green and White to take the Assistant Wide Receivers coaching position with the Tennessee Titans.

According to a release from the Titans, Tucker joins the Titans after spending six seasons coaching wide receivers in the Canadian Football League, including the last four with Saskatchewan. In 2013, his group of receivers included three 1,000-yard receivers for only the second time in franchise history and Saskatchewan captured the Grey Cup. Tucker also brings experience as a player, spending two years (199-2000) with the Dallas Cowboys. He would have his greatest success as a player in the CFL, where he totaled 7,046 receiving yards during his seven-year career with Edmonton. He earned CFL All-Star honors four times and won two Grey Cups (2003, 2005) as a player. Tucker played his college football at TCU and was a sixth-round selection by the Cincinnati Bengals in the 1998 NFL Draft.

The Green and White have not named a replacement.
