NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – The Tennessee Titans have added James Kirkland and Mike Yowarsky to their scouting staff.

Yowarsky will cover the Southeast for the Titans. Tim Ruskell, who scouted the Southeast last year, will cross check all areas east of the Mississippi River.

Yowarsky has 21 years of NFL scouting experience and spent the last two seasons with Tampa Bay.

The Titans' pro scouting department added Kirkland, who most recently worked with the Chicago Bears.

Brandon Taylor, who had been the Titans' Combine scout, now will handle the Midwest. Dale Thompson will be the combine scout.

The Titans also hired Luke Steckel as special assistant to head coach Mike Munchak. Dennis Polian, who previously filled that role, now is assistant director of football administration/pro scout.
