Beddingfield let go as director of college scouting

The Tennessee Titans made a front office shakeup on Monday, firing director of college scouting Blake Beddingfield after 18 years with the club, a source told TitanInsider.com.
Beddingfield first joined the Titans in 1999 when Floyd Reese hired him as a local scout and administrator within the department. He was one of the last front office links back to the days of Reese and Jeff Fisher, when the organization experienced its greatest amount of success and its only Super Bowl appearance to date.
Beddingfield steadily moved up the ranks to become and area scout, then the Titans coordinator of college scouting before being named director of college scouting in 2013.
The University of Alabama graduate worked for four different general managers in his time with the club – Reese, Mike Reinfeldt, Ruston Webster and Jon Robinson.
The Titans just completed their draft over the weekend, making nine selections.
Beddingfield, in his five seasons as the team’s director of college scouting, had a hand in the evaluation and drafting of such players as Marcus Mariota, Taylor Lewan and Derrick Henry, among others.
During his time as the scout of the Southeast, Beddingfield also had a hand in the Titans scouting of Albert Haynesworth and Stephen Tulloch.
According to one report, Titans area scout Tim Ruskell, who joined the club in 2012, was also let go.
