Titans’ QB Young
bound for Pro Bowl

Tennessee Titans’ quarterback Vince Young is a Pro Bowler again.
Young, who began the season as the Titans’ backup but got the starting role when Kerry Collins faltered, was named as a replacement to injured San Diego Chargers’ QB Philip Rivers.
Tennessee was 8-2 in Young’s 10 games as the team’s starting quarterback this season.
It is Young’s second Pro Bowl appearance.
The game will be played Jan. 31 at Miami.

Cregg follows Lane
from Vols to USC

LOS ANGELES (AP) — James Cregg has been hired by Southern California as an assistant coach, following Lane Kiffin from Tennessee to the Trojans.
USC didn’t specify a job title Wednesday for Cregg, Kiffin’s offensive line coach last season with the Volunteers.
He spent the previous two seasons as an offensive line assistant with the Oakland Raiders when Kiffin was the head coach.
Cregg and Kiffin were graduate assistants on the same coaching staff in 1999 at Colorado State, Cregg’s alma mater.
Cregg is a native of Norco, Calif., east of Los Angeles in Riverside County.
Kiffin’s father, Monte, and top recruiter Ed Orgeron are also on the USC staff.
