It was reported previously that the longtime former head coach of the Tennessee Titans would decide between the Rams and the Miami Dolphin’s head coaching positions at some point in the next week.
Fisher was the NFL’s longest-tenured head coach when fired by Tennessee last January. With the Titans/Oilers he posted a 142-120 overall record and led the team to the franchise’s lone Super Bowl berth in 1999. In 2010 he led the Titans to a 6-10 record.
The Rams finished the season tied with the Indianapolis Colts for the worst record in the NFL. Despite finishing with a 2-14 record, it is believed to be an attractive position for Fisher because of their young quarterback Sam Bradford.
