Dean Pees is retiring again from the NFL, stepping down from his post as defensive coordinator of the Tennessee Titans.

Pees previously had a short retirement in January 2018 when he retired as defensive coordinator of the Baltimore Ravens only to return weeks later in the same job with the Titans.

Pees spent 10 total seasons as a defensive coordinator with the Ravens and New England Patriots.

"I talked him out of retirement once. I didn't have the heart to talk him out of it again," Mike Vrabel said.
