Jeff Fisher

Currently – head coach St. Louis Rams

Fisher is a coach who may or may not be in trouble with the Rams. His time with the Rams has not been what Stan Kroenke imagined when he hired him in 2012. Fisher is 26-35-1 since arriving in St. Louis and has not led the team to a single season above 7-9. With uncertainty surrounding the Rams future in St. Louis, Fisher could conceivably ask for his release if he isn’t fired.

It’s hard to determine where Fisher could land if he is looking for work after 2015. Fisher is the longest tenured coach in the NFL currently serving his 21’st season as a head coach in the NFL. His previous head coaching job was with the Houston Oilers and Tennessee Titans moving to Nashville with the team after they relocated from Houston. Could he relocate with the Rams as well?

Fisher’s Rams are talented but young. He has coached strong defenses with both of his teams but something hasn’t clicked in St. Louis. If Fisher does become free to sign with another team, it’s likely he could land in Indianapolis or revisit joining the Dolphins who he spurned in 2012.
