Titans interview Alabama coach

Tuesday, February 6, 2001 at 1:00am

University of Alabama defensive backs coach Charlie Harbison interviewed Monday for the same position with the Tennessee Titans.

Harbison would replace Jerry Gray, who departed with Gregg Williams to become defensive coordinator of the Buffalo Bills.

Harbison, 42, has been defensive backs coach for the Crimson Tide for the past three seasons and previously served in the same role at Clemson University. Harbison also played three years of professional football in both the NFL and USFL. He coached in the World League of American Football before taking a job as wide receivers coach at Gardner-Webb, his alma mater, in 1992. He served as an assistant coach at Texas-El Paso in 1994 and joined the Clemson staff in 1995.

Harbison is the second potential assistant coach to interview with the Titans since the promotion of Jim Schwartz to defensive coordinator.

Last Friday, when Schwartz was introduced as the new coordinator, the Titans interviewed former Memphis standout Keith Butler for the linebackers coach vacancy created by Schwartz
