Jeff Fisher will interview in St. Louis

Jeff Fisher AP

The first NBCSportsTalk on the newly christened NBC Sports Network had a juicy nugget in the first five minutes.

Peter King reported that Jeff Fisher will interview for the Rams head coaching job this week.

It’s believed that Fisher wants to go to a place with a quarterback in place. St. Louis certainly qualifies. Fisher has close ties to the Rams.

Fisher’s agent is Marvin Demoff, the father of Kevin Demoff, Rams COO and Executive Vice President of Football Operations.

It sounds like Fisher is going to be back in the NFL this year. St. Louis gets the first crack at speaking with him and possibly making him the next Rams head coach.

    I wish the coach the best glad he is going that way instead of to the Bucks ( I Hope ). Fine coach but a great person

    Out of curiosity (because it will be talked about), if you’re in the War Room responsible for the #2 overall pick – do you keep Bradford, or trade Bradford and draft RG3.

    Thumbs up for RG3 + 1st round pick and additional pick(s)

    Thumbs down for Bradford + #2

    YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    He’s going to Indy…definitely.

    Well looks like Fisher will be gone pretty quick. I say St. Louis, San Diego if they fire Turner or Indy, assuming they get rid of Caldwell, which only makes sense. That guy looks clueless on the sidelines, from what games I watched this year.

    Zero chance the Rams draft RGIII. Bradford being there is one of the reasons Fisher is interested in the job.

    The question we all want answered is who will be their Rooney rule interview?

  8. johnshawisgay says: Jan 2, 2012 4:18 PM

    Fisher won’t be in San Diego because Deanie is sleeping on the decision while the rest of the NFL is acting…

  9. thenmoveback says: Jan 2, 2012 4:22 PM

    I want him in Miami

  10. hmpennypacker says: Jan 2, 2012 4:24 PM

    I say he goes to the Rams because in a couple of years he’ll be coaching them back in California.

    Also some good pieces in place and the possibility of trading the #2 pick for a team who wants RG3 (assuming he enters the draft).

    Well, 8 – 8 is a 400% improvement over 2 – 14.

    Fisher also has an interview set for Indy late this week or next in which he will also discuss possible GM candidates the Colt’s might consider.

    St. Louis definitely has a “secure” QB in place, but in this case the security is the $50 million dollar contract Bradford signed. Bradford may turn out to be great, but the jury has not even started deliberating yet due to the teams overall lack of talent and his propensity to miss playing time.

    The bad news for Fisher is that the team needs to be rebuilt on both sides of the ball. The good news, a traditionally weak division, lower expectations, and a smaller market media which I promise he loves.

    Only better scenario is probably San Diego, and that job’s not open. ( YET )

    Rams in talks of hiring Jeff Fisher’s mustache as new Head Coach. Mustache insists that Fisher’s part of the package, team mulling this demand.

    Has a Super Bowl losing HC ever gone on to coach the team that beat him in the Super Bowl?

  16. souldogdave says: Jan 2, 2012 4:47 PM

    The Rams are the tease. The Colts w/the #1 pick or San Diego /Rivers would make the most sense to me.

  17. jredshoes says: Jan 2, 2012 4:52 PM

    It’s time to get rid of the Rooney rule. NFL teams today want to hire a coach that’s a winner. It’s been proven time and gain that if a black coach is the best candidate for the job (like RAC if KC is smart) they get hired. Maybe the Rooney rule helped at one time to open doors but it’s no longer relevant. If the NFL is so worried aboutb equality why doesn’t the NFL require teams to interview Chinese guys or women (neither of which are currently head coaches)?

    What channel is that on Direct TV again? Just so hard to search way up there, 212 is so easy to remember.

  19. thingamajig says: Jan 2, 2012 4:59 PM

    Fisher’s interview with the Rams is only to drive up the price in San Diego.

  20. mmcdan133 says: Jan 2, 2012 5:04 PM

    I can’t see him landing anywhere but San Diego. As a Chiefs fan, I hope I’m dead wrong.

  21. toonsterwu says: Jan 2, 2012 5:13 PM

    I really like the fit there in St. Louis if he goes. He has quality ends on hand, and should be able to find DT talent. The system he brings won’t depend on how LB picks, so they can address the complementary parts to Laurinaitis later. The offensive system is likely to be QB friendly in terms of protecting the QB.

  22. rammerray says: Jan 2, 2012 5:16 PM

    RAMS fan here. How ironic is this? The coach who we defeated in the Super Bowl could be the new head coach. Go figure…

  23. astrozac says: Jan 2, 2012 5:17 PM

    “Has a Super Bowl losing HC ever gone on to coach the team that beat him in the Super Bowl?”

    Dan Reeves, lost to the Giants as HC with the Broncos and later became their HC. Then he made it with the Falcons and lost to his old team.

    Jim Fassel lost as Giants HC to the Ravens and later became on their staff, though not HC…

  24. dctitanfan says: Jan 2, 2012 5:23 PM

    Fisher is also a good fit because he has experience in transitioning his team to a new home, and he wants to be in southern CA anyway. Rams on their way back to LA! (And Jags to St.Louis!)

  25. kast2l says: Jan 2, 2012 5:32 PM

    as a Titans fan here… be prepared for YEARS of mediocrity…

  26. pemory says: Jan 2, 2012 5:39 PM

    I sure wish this headline read “Fisher to Interview for San Diego Job.”

  27. danospleasanton says: Jan 2, 2012 6:11 PM

    This is most likely to happen? The Rams have soooo many options with Bradford and that first pick. The fans are RABID when the team is just ok….not so much when aweful. He is a damn good coach and the 9ers would have to face his team twice. Having said that, I HOPE he ends up elsewhere. -Chargers, Miami or KC so pretty much anyone in the AFC. The NFC is tough enough!

    The Rooney Rule technically states that teams must interview MINORITY candidates for head coaching positions. It doesn’t have to be black. For example, when the Panthers interviewed and subsequently hired Ron Rivera, they passed the Rooney Rule because Rivera is Latino and counts as a minority.

    He’s speaking with Miami first… but he’ll most likely coach the Rams.
