After a year off, Jeff Fisher is ready to coach again.
Multiple reports on this Black Monday in the NFL say that Fisher, who coached the Titans from 1995 (when they were the Houston Oilers) until 2010, wants back in the business. And, no surprise, the reports say Fisher wants to coach a team with a stable quarterback situation. (In other words, he doesn’t want another Vince Young.)
Where the reports differ is in which teams interest Fisher most. Albert Breer of NFL Network reports that Fisher is expected to have the Rams and Chargers at the top of his list, assuming Norv Turner joins Steve Spagnuolo on the unemployment line. Mike Freeman of CBS reports that Fisher likes the Bucs and the Colts, assuming Jim Caldwell gets fired along with Raheem Morris.
So Fisher apparently likes the idea of coaching Sam Bradford or Philip Rivers or Josh Freeman or Peyton Manning or Andrew Luck. It seems likely that at least one of the teams with a vacancy would be interested in a proven coach like Fisher, and that he’ll be back on the sidelines in 2012.
