Tennessee Titans owner Bud Adams met with team officials on Monday to discuss the future of head coach Jeff Fisher–who is currently the longest tenured coach in the NFL.After a 5-2 start, the Titans went on to lose eight of their final nine games and missed the postseason for the second-straight year–which is why Fisher has been on the hot seat the last few weeks. Adams released a statement Monday night–indicating that he and some of the other members of the organization have yet to reach a decision on the matter and will continue to evaluate whether or not Fisher should return next season.
Here’s the statement released by Adams:
“I met for several hours today with Steve Underwood and Mike Reinfeldt about our organization and where we go from here. I will continue to review all aspects of what we do as a football team, including the coaching staff and other decisions that are in front of us.
“There are several things that need to be considered in this evaluation process, including Jeff’s (Fisher) history with our team, the labor situation and other challenges. I have been at this for a long time, and these decisions take time and thoughtful consideration. I will make the decisions that I feel are in the best interest of the team. I do understand the time element involved and would expect to make these decisions in the near future.
“In the meantime, I will continue to be in contact with Jeff and the senior staff for any additional information that I may need.”
Looks like Titans fans will have to wait at least one more day before finding out whether or not Fisher will be back for his 17th season as Titans head coach.
