Fisher is considered by many to be the hottest head coaching candidate for many teams this offseason. Most recently he served as head coach of the Titans for over a decade, where he posted a 142-120 overall record and led the team to the franchise’s lone Super Bowl berth in 1999. Last season he led the Titans to a 6-10 record.
Fisher was the NFL’s longest-tenured head coach when fired by Tennessee last January. Reports at the time indicated that Fisher was let go after a disagreement with ownership about the employment of his son, Brandon, as a member of the coaching staff. Jeff wanted to bring Brandon aboard as a quality control coach, however owner Bud Adams had a strict “no family hires” policy for the Titan’s coaching staff.
Brandon Fisher was later hired as a defensive assistant for the Detroit Lions. Jeff Fisher is also believed to be a candidate for the St. Louis Rams vacant head coaching position.
