Tuesday March 1st, 2016

The Los Angeles Rams are discussing contract extensions with coach Jeff Fisher and his staff, according to ESPN’s Nick Wagoner.

Fisher is entering the final year of a five-year, $35 million deal that he signed in 2012. The Rams have gone 27-36-1 since he arrived and are coming off a 7–9 campaign that saw them finish third in the NFC West.

A native of California, Fisher coached the Houston Oilers through their relocation to Tennessee in 1997, and will again lead a team through a move with the Rams leaving St. Louis for Los Angeles.
