WILLIAMSON COUNTY, Tenn. (WTVF) — Former Tennessee Titan wide receiver Kevin Dyson has been named the principal of Grassland Middle School in Williamson County.

Dyson had been the interim principal at the school before being permanently named Friday by Interim Superintendent Jason Golden.

“He has served the school well during his interim period, and I’ve been especially impressed with the positive relationships he’s built in such a short time,” said Golden. “Teaching and learning matter at Grassland, and we look forward to Dr. Dyson leading this great school.”

Dyson's career in education began following his retirement from the NFL in 2005.

“Grassland Middle School was built with a strong foundation and rich traditions, and I am humbled to receive the opportunity to lead GMS to greater heights,” said Dyson.

Dyson played for the Titans from 1998-2002 and scored the touchdown now famously dubbed the "Music City Miracle" against the Buffalo Bills in the 1999 NFL Playoffs.
