I’m guessing that unless you live in Tennessee or are a Titans fan, you have no idea who Chuck Cecil is. But don’t worry, I do and I’m willing to tell you - he’s the Titans defensive backs coach. Now as an assistant coach on a pro football team, you’re constantly in danger of getting a target on your back in the local media when things are going wrong. Fortunately for Chuck, the Titans are good this season and they have one of the best secondaries in the NFL. But things in the NFL can change quickly, and if they do, Chuck has an ace up his sleeve to keep the columnists from heaping blame upon him.
Chuck is married to Carrie Cecil, whom before marrying Chuck was known as Carrie Gerlach, who had a pretty successful career as a television writer/producer. Carrie wrote a book called Emily’s Reasons Why Not, which was made into an ABC television series back in 2006 starring Heather Graham - but it was canceled after only one episode. So what is Carrie up to now? Why, she writes a column for the local Nashville paper.
