Tennessee promotes Osovet, moves Niedermeyer to defense

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee has shuffled its coaching staff by promoting Joe Osovet to tight ends coach and moving Brian Niedermeyer from offense to defense. Osovet had joined Tennessee’s staff in 2018 by filling an off-field role in player development. He took over as director of football programming last year. Osevet now has the position that Niedermeyer filled the last two years. Niedermeyer is moving to defense to coach Tennessee’s inside linebackers. Tennessee was seeking an inside linebackers coach because Kevin Sherrer left to coach the New York Giants’ inside linebackers.
