The architect gets his day

The Titans former Special Teams Coach had the Music City Miracle play known as the "Home Run Throwback" in his playbook for 17 years - completely unused. Week after week, he made players practice it, just in case that crucial game-on-the-line moment ever arrived. When it did, it was a miracle.

About the speaker

Alan Lowry

Alan Lowry: The mastery of several special teams plays, including the Music City Miracle, propelled the Titans to the Super Bowl during the 1999-2000 season. The architect of those plays was none other than former Titans Special Teams Coach Alan Lowry. Once a quarterback and defensive back at the University of Texas, Lowry earned All-Southwest Conference honors before joining the coaching ranks - first college, then the Cowboys, Buccaneers, 49ers and eventually the Houston Oilers. He actually coached wide receivers for the Oilers before assuming special teams duties when the team relocated to Tennessee. Lowry will tell the story behind the Miracle - how it was created and how it didn't run exactly according to the play plan.
