NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Dowell Loggains will remain the offensive coordinator for Tennessee, and coach Mike Munchak has hired three new assistants — Sylvester Croom, Shawn Jefferson and George Henshaw.

Munchak announced a handful of coaching moves Thursday.

Jefferson is the new receivers coach, while Croom will coach running backs. With Loggains moving to offensive coordinator, Dave Ragone moves from coaching receivers to Loggains' old spot as quarterbacks coach. Henshaw will be Tennessee's new tight ends coach.

Nate Kaczor is moving from assistant offensive line coach to special teams in replacing Alan Lowry whose contract was not renewed. Chet Parlavecchio will move from special teams assistant to coaching linebackers.

Munchak also decided not to keep linebackers coach Frank Bush, running backs coach Jim Skipper and tight ends coach John Zernhelt.
