The Titans are in line to hire Zac Woodfin as director of sports performance. He will replace Frank Piraino, who left the team for a similar job with the New York Giants. 

Woodfin has been director of player performance and wellness for the UFL. Previously he was director of athletic performance at Missouri and he was FootballScoop's 2014 National Strength and Conditioning Coach of the Year while there.

The Titans suffered a slew of injuries over the last three years and pledged to search for every solution to the issue with a reshuffled leadership structure and Brian Callahan in place as coach. Woodfin's conditioning program is sure to be a big piece of that.

Before Missouri, he was at Kansas and Southen Miss, where he also served as interim athletic director. He was an assistant strength and conditioning coach with the Green Bay Packers from 2011-13.

He began his career as a volunteer assistant at Alabama and UAB before four years at Athletes Performance in Los Angeles, where he worked with athletes from all four major American sports leagues as well as Olympians. 

Woodfin played linebacker at UAB and spent time with the Packers, Saints, Ravens and Texans. He played in one NFL game, with the Ravens in 2005.

The timetable for his start with the Titans is unclear, though Brian Callahan has said he was hopeful that Pirano's replacement would be in place by mid-March. Three Pirano assistants have remained on staff and are currently running the weight room. Once Woodfin gets to know them he could shuffle the staff.
