But it's spring break at Texas, meaning Young is back in Nashville, where he met his new offensive coordinator, Mike Heimerdinger, for the first time Friday. Young says he likes where Heimerdinger, who replaces the fired Norm Chow, is taking the offense:
Some will no doubt say that Young should treat the NFL as a year-round job and spend the off-season in Nashville, not Austin. There may be some validity to that. But it's important to Young and his family that he earn a degree, and the Titans have raised no objections publicly to Young's off-season pursuits. We'll see when the season starts whether he's done enough to get himself caught up on Heimerdinger's offense.
"It was a great meeting. We kidded around. He's cool,'' Young said of Heimerdinger. "I like the direction things are going with the offense, some of the things we're going to do.
"With everything I learned from Norm, that should help me get things even quicker. It's going to be good.''
