Jeff Fisher placed a full-page ad in Sunday’s edition of the Nashville Tennessean, aimed at thanking the Titans and their fans after his 14-year run as coach. Fisher came with the franchise to Tennessee after its move from Houston in 1997. All told, he was the football organization’s head coach for 17 seasons.
The Titans blog MusicCityMiracles.com has a snapshot of the classy gesture. (Click here to see.)
“With heartfelt gratitude,” writes Fisher, “I would like to thank all of YOU for your unwavering commitment and support through the years. This has been an experience of a lifetime. Without the trust of (owner) Bud Adams and the entire organization none of this would have been possible. Words can’t describe my feelings for all the players, coaches, and staff that have been a part of this franchise.
“I am honored to have been part of this legacy! Thanks for the memories!!
