NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Steve Underwood, who currently serves as the interim President for the Tennessee Titans, will remain with the team through the upcoming season.

The Titans announced Tuesday that Underwood would stay with the team through the 2015 season.

Underwood has been in the position since March after Tommy Smith retired. Smith was named president and CEO in October 2013 following the death of the franchise's founder and his father-in-law Bud Adams.

Previously, Underwood served as a general counsel and in other key capacities for the franchise for a 35-year period before retiring in 2011.

Underwood released a statement saying, “I am excited and honored to continue my stay here in Nashville. I have a great deal of respect for this organization and our ownership group, and I look forward to the challenges on the horizon. I will do all that I can to put this franchise in a position to have success both on and off the field this season while hopefully positioning our organization for long-term success.”
