Dennis Polian has resigned from the Tennessee Titans in order to accept a job as Director of Player Personnel according to footballscoop.com. Dennis has been serving as assistant director of football administration / pro scout for the Titans since 2012.  Dennis is the son of the legendary NFL GM Bill Polian.  He is also a brother to Brian Polian, now the Nevada head coach, after serving as Kevin Sumlin's special teams coordinator in 2012.

This will be a new position for the Texas A&M football staff.  The director of player personnel will likely help manage the roster, as well as do evaluations for current players and prospects.  This position has become much more common in college football over the last 3-5 years.
