The Tennessee Titans have named Mical Johnson as a full-time scouting assistant, the first woman to do so for the organization. Johnson’s hire comes alongside multiple other additions to the Titans’ football staff.

Johnson played for the Belmont Bruins tennis team from 2015 to 2019. She later served as the Amy Adams Strunk Women in Football intern where she helped put the advanced reports together for the coaches during the 2020 season for the team’s weekly opponent. Johnson will work in both college and pro scouting, evaluating players, monitoring the daily waiver wire, and assisting in the preparation for free agency and the NFL Draft.

The Titans also announced the addition of Blaise Taylor as a pro scout and Matt Miller as a college scout, transitioning from their previous roles as scouting assistants. Taylor’s focus will be involved in advance scouting for upcoming opponents, as well as evaluating potential free agents for the free agency period every spring. Miller will have a region of colleges to visit, evaluate, and gather information on prospects for the annual NFL Draft. Both will retain portions of their previous roles as scouting assistants.

Kiara Mayo has accepted this year’s Amy Adams Strunk Women in Football Training Camp internship in Scouting and Operations. She is currently a graduate student at Belmont University and will begin during training camp.

Titans GM Jon Robinson and coach Mike Vrabel created the offseason internship program, adding a role on Vrabel’s coaching staff, and a spot on Robinson’s personnel staff that would also be dedicated to women after attending the Women’s Careers in Football Program. They called it the ‘Amy Adams Strunk Women in Sports Program,’ named after the team’s controlling owner.

The organization also hired Kylan Butler as the Bill Walsh Offensive Fellowship Coach for the upcoming season. He previously served as the offensive coordinator at Morehead State in Kentucky. Butler will work with all of the skill positions on the offense, including quarterbacks.
