BREAKING: Jeff Fisher Officially Agrees to Coach St. Louis Rams
Jeff Fisher will officially be coaching the St. Louis Rams next season, according to Peter King of Sports Illustrated. After a few weeks of deciding, Fisher picked the Rams over the Miami Dolphins.
Fisher took the entire 2011 season off after spending spending 17 years in Tennessee as the Titans head coach. Over that stretch, Fisher compiled a 142-120 record and made six postseason appearances, which included taking Tennessee to Super Bowl XXXIV where they lost to St. Louis in the final seconds.
The 53-year-old more than likely picked St. Louis over Miami because of the Rams quarterback situation. St. Louis has a young quarterback in Sam Bradford who will be heading into his third season in the league. They will also be more than $30 million under the cap to go out and spend on free agents.
Without a general manager currently in place, expect Fisher to have a heavy hand in the Rams moves this offseason.
