Former Tennessee Titans and St. Louis/Los Angeles Rams head coach Jeff Fisher will soon start his second season completely out of the NFL after spending the better part of the past three decades in the league.
Considered an overrated coach by the masses, Fisher was fired by the Rams after a 4-9 start to the 2016 season. It represented his seventh consecutive campaign without a winning record.
At this point, it seems that Fisher’s head coaching career in the NFL has run its course. He hasn’t led a winning squad since all the way back in 2008 with the Tennessee Titans. That’s nearly a decade of futility.
Even then, it doesn’t seem like Fisher is willing to give up on his hopes of becoming an NFL head coach again. He also has no interest in returning to the league as a coordinator.
“I’ve had opportunities to stay in it, but I don’t see myself coming back and coordinating. As we all know, success in the National Football League is built on a number of different things,” Fisher told SiriusXM recently. “And it starts with the quarterback and you’ve got to stay healthy and you’ve got to hit things running and you’ve got to have a good staff, all those things.”
Having been a defensive coordinator with the Philadelphia Eagles, Los Angeles Rams and Houston Oilers earlier in his career, it stands to reason that teams might show interest in Fisher for that role.
Though, if Fisher is holding out for a head coaching job, it seems highly unlikely he’ll ever return to the NFL ranks.
Immediately after firing Fisher late in the 2016 season, Los Angeles hired a young offensive mind in that of Sean McVay. He would go on to lead the Rams to the No. 1 scoring offense en route to finishing with an 11-5 record. Fisher’s squad ranked dead last in scoring the previous season.
