Tennessee Titans offensive coordinator Todd Downing was arrested on Friday morning … just hours after he helped his team beat the Packers on “Thursday Night Football,” TMZ Sports has confirmed.
A police spokesperson tells us Downing was arrested by the Tennessee Highway Patrol in Williamson County, TN. on Friday morning … and booked on charges of DUI and speeding.
Records show the 42-year-old bonded out of jail at around 6:46 AM.
Further details surrounding the arrest were not made immediately available.
Just prior to his arrest, Downing put on a great performance in Tennessee’s 27-17 win over Green Bay at Lambeau Field. He dialed up several trick plays, and was partly responsible for a big night from quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who completed 22 of his 27 passes for 333 yards and two touchdowns.
The Titans have yet to publicly comment on the arrest.
