Tennessee Titans wide receivers coach Fred Graves has left the team to accept the same position with the Carolina Panthers, John Glennon of The Tennessean reports.
Glennon notes that Graves is the fifth assistant coach to leave the franchise this off-season.
Graves replaces Tyke Tolbert, who followed John Fox to the Denver Broncos, and inherits a fairly young corps of receivers.
Of the seven receivers the Panthers have signed for 2011, four entered the NFL in 2010, including third-round picks Armanti Edwards and Brandon LaFell, and sixth-round pick David Gettis, who started 13 games.
"I firmly believe that any man’s finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle – victorious."
