Report: Rams coach Jeff Fisher to receive contract extension
Los Angeles Rams head coach Jeff Fisher is in line for a three-year contract extension, reports ESPN.com's John Clayton.
Clayton said on 710 ESPN Radio in Seattle that Fisher's extension would be finalized soon and would be announced along with a new deal for defensive tackle Michael Brockers.
Brockers in the final year of his deal and is making $6.1 million in base salary.
Last month, ESPN reported that new deals were forthcoming for both Fisher and general manager Les Snead.
Fisher, 58, is the final year of his contract with the team. Fisher has a 27–37–1 record in four-plus seasons with the Rams and has yet to post a winning record in that time.
Before his stint with the Rams, he was the head coach of the Tennessee Titans, posting a 142–120 mark.
Now in his 22nd season as an NFL head coach, Fisher's teams have been to the playoffs only six times, and none of those appearances have come in the past seven seasons he has been a coach.
Fisher's 157 losses are third-most in NFL history among head coaches, and he is nine defeats from setting the all-time record.
