Jeff Fisher says his decision will come next week

Jeff Fisher AP

This year’s most sought-after head-coaching candidate says he’ll announce where he’ll spend 2012 next week.

Jeff Fisher, who has interviewed with the Dolphins and Rams, told ESPN’s Adam Schefter that he will make his decision next week.

Fisher confirmed that he’s considering only the Rams and the Dolphins. It’s not clear whether he has decided for sure to coach and is deciding only which of those two teams he wants to coach, or if he’s also considering taking another year off from coaching.

By making it public that his decision is coming next week, Fisher is giving the owners of the Rams and Dolphins another week to engage in a bidding war for his services. A week from now, we’ll know who won.

    And the “winner” will get mediocrity for the next 10 – 15 years as their “prize”

    Fisher played this to perfection.

  3. candyman4881 says: Jan 6, 2012 12:44 PM

    Jeff – Please come to the Rams and bring back competitive football to St Louis!

  4. yamchargers says: Jan 6, 2012 12:44 PM

    With the Chargers job not coming open he is probably considering not coaching this year. SD at least has a chance at being competitive immediately.

  5. finsfrenzy says: Jan 6, 2012 12:45 PM

    As a Dolphins fan I think he’s the safest choice out there. Not saying he’s the greatest but it’s better than another former Cowboys assistant.

  6. Nevis says: Jan 6, 2012 12:47 PM

    My prediction:

    Fisher will go with the Rams, in an ironic “If you can’t beat them, join them” subplot that is 12 years in the making.

    And once again, Stephen Ross’ money will mean nothing to a legit name, as Harbaugh/Fisher can smell the stench of their FO woes from miles away.

    Personally, I’d prefer to see him in Miami, but I don’t see it happening.

  7. shawn7331 says: Jan 6, 2012 12:48 PM

    Thats great news Jeff!!! even greater news if you choose the Rams, miami’s already sucked for years now and we need a better leader than you…

  8. binarybulge says: Jan 6, 2012 12:50 PM

    Well it’s obviously Miami, then. Their team is in a much better position to compete and Fisher knows it. Young stars abound. No one with a decent track record as a coach picks the Rams at this point, unless they REALLY want a challenge.

  9. jimyritz says: Jan 6, 2012 12:51 PM

    I’d say Miami, but not sure about their owner-seems more into entertainment/ music and Hollywood than Football. It will come down to the obvious-money and power..

  10. chc4 says: Jan 6, 2012 12:53 PM

    It’s gotta be St. Louis. They have a QB in place and Ross is a dope. Plus the NFC West is much friendlier.

  11. edubs23 says: Jan 6, 2012 12:53 PM

    It’d be great if they both hired someone else by this time next week.

    What has Fisher done that makes him so desirable… he has a .542 winning % over 17 years and managed to lose one super bowl. He only made the playoffs in one third of the years he was coaching the Titans.

    This is just to give the Rams time to comply with the Ronney Rule.

  16. smackadabassmon says: Jan 6, 2012 1:01 PM

    The Rams may not have looked like it this year (due to an unREAL rash of injuries), but they have more talent to build around than the Phins. Fisher would be wise to go to St. Lou…….

  17. test2402 says: Jan 6, 2012 1:03 PM

    He wanted to coach Tim Tebow.

  18. tennesseeoilers says: Jan 6, 2012 1:03 PM

    He’s also giving other teams another week to throw their names (and cash) in the hat.

  19. dtm1088 says: Jan 6, 2012 1:04 PM

    I think Jeff Fisher should do a TV special on his decision and tell us he is taking his talents so South Beach.

  20. cubano76 says: Jan 6, 2012 1:05 PM

    St. Louis: Average Temp 59.6 degress

  21. patslaya says: Jan 6, 2012 1:05 PM

    Wow! I’m in the wrong line of work. Wouldn’t it be nice to take a couple years off, wake up one day and go on a few interviews and let the world know that YOU will let everyone know your decision next week? Good for him I guess. I’m not sure what the big deal is with the guy. What has he ever really accomplished other than keeping his job longer than he should have? He is really 1 HOF inherited QB away from being Shanahan. FYI Rams and Fins, the Redskins have a worse record in 2 years under Shamahan than they did under 2 years of Zorn…

  22. tyelee says: Jan 6, 2012 1:07 PM

    It would not surprise me if Jeff chooses The Rams….. Bradford has shown promise at times, Steven Jackson is already a proven stud RB and some other pieces are their that just needs the right coaching….. Not to mention that HCs careers are often tied to playoff appearances and the Rams are in the weaker division so Jeff has a greater chance there to get to the playoff sooner….

  23. raven410 says: Jan 6, 2012 1:08 PM

    He’s going to STL

  24. ftrupo says: Jan 6, 2012 1:09 PM

    Perfect on the South Beach!

  25. 6ball says: Jan 6, 2012 1:10 PM

    .

    St Louis has a young roster without a lot of depth and was hit particularly hard by injuries this year. Next year the injured players will return, the young players will have a year under their belt, and the Rams should be able to auction off that #2 draft pick for a sizeable return. Too much upside.

    8-8 in St Louis and he’s a hero. 8-8 in Miami …not so much.

  32. finsfrenzy says: Jan 6, 2012 1:16 PM

    Dolphins have way more talent than the Rams; they are a couple pieces away from making a run. Brady isn’t getting any younger and the Jets are falling apart; Dolphins could have easily won 10 games this year, should’ve beat the Giants,Browns, Cowboys and Broncos (all were 4th qtr collapses)

  33. whiplash013 says: Jan 6, 2012 1:19 PM

    Dolphins have a real young roster as well. They were 12 points away from being 11-5 this year since they had 5 games decided by 3 or fewer points. Granted they don’t have a first overall pick at QB but Bradford hasn’t played like a first round pick yet either. Miami has a better O-Line, comparible RB’s with Bush (who is younger than Jackson) and Thomas, much better WR’s, a better front 7 , a much better secondary, one of the best punters in the game and a solid kicker. They pick up Flynn as a FA in the offseason and draft Reiff or Martin for Right Tackle and they have 3 first rounders on their O-Line to go with Incognito and Carey/Jerry and they could have one of the best lines in football.

  35. riverhorsey says: Jan 6, 2012 1:22 PM

    Late breaking news reports out of KC according to Bob Gretz and Nick Wright have Fisher very interested in the job with the Chiefs.

    Both are saying Fisher interviewed with Pioli last week and that Fisher believes the Chiefs to be better positioned to win now than either the Dolphins or Rams.

    Rams interviewing Rooney Rule coach Ray Horton today from the Cardinals.

  40. suhnami says: Jan 6, 2012 1:30 PM

    I’m sorry but this whole Rooney rule is a complete joke. People want to get rid of racism so in an attempt they make up racist rules and regulations?? You HAVE to interview a minority for vacancies…

    would any of these activist groups be up in arms if say Raheem Morris, Jerry Gray, and Ray Horton all got interviewed for the Rams job and one was eventually hired but no white, or hispanic, or asian coach was even brought into consideration??

    Interview and hire on merits and you don’t have to force regulations that only fuel even more racism. How many times was Leslie Frazier brought in as a puppet candidate just to fulfill some rule?? Just saying, sometimes these rules are doing more harm than good…you’re creating more racism by forcing teams to interview someone because of the color of their skin as opposed to the merit of their credentials.

  41. roamingabriel says: Jan 6, 2012 1:30 PM

    He’ll come back to the Rams, who he grew up watching and was DC for…

    And the Rams will come back to LA and play within a stones throw of where Fisher was born…

    So now Matt Flynn is better than Sam Bradford?

  49. laeaglefan says: Jan 6, 2012 2:29 PM

    The Rooney Rule is so stupid. If all they need to do to comply is to interview a black coaching candidate, why not interview Terrell Owens for the coaching job?
    That would be just as much in compliance as interviewing a “legitimate” candidate just for the sake of complying with the rule.

  50. bunjy96 says: Jan 6, 2012 2:33 PM

  51. jcampol says: Jan 6, 2012 2:33 PM

    Can someone please explain to me how Sam Bradford is a proven qb? And why his presence makes that job so much more attractive? Just curious

  52. nyfcat says: Jan 6, 2012 2:52 PM

    The only time Fisher even had DECENT QB play in Tennessee was 1999-2003 when Steve McNair peaked.

    And in 4 of 5 of these years, he won 11-13 games.

  53. jutts says: Jan 6, 2012 3:04 PM

    If he is gonna sit for another year, why? Is he hoping that Lovie Smith fails in Chicago? The Bears job is apperently coveted by Fisher. Maybe he should give George Mckaskey a call.

  54. dolphan13 says: Jan 6, 2012 3:07 PM

    ATTENTION JEFF FISHER!!!

    We want and need you in Miami. The Dolphins are on the cusp of making the playoffs. We already have a top 10 defense that is a free safety and alittle more depth away from being championship caliber.

    On offense we have Jake Long (future hall of famer), Pouncy, Brandon Marshall, Reggie Bush, Fasano, Clay, Devon Bess… Matt Moore was good…you can still go after great.

    We are close!!

    2 more quality drafts and free agencys and we could be superbowl bound.

    THE RAMS HAVE NOTHING!!!!!!

    Thanks, Dolphan

  55. rosloe62 says: Jan 6, 2012 3:07 PM

    Rookie of the Year last year. What QB would have done better this year given the injuries, lack of WR, strength of schedule?

  56. whiplash013 says: Jan 6, 2012 3:12 PM

    I never said that, but Bradford hasn’t turned out to be the stud they thought he was going to be yet. Bradford definately has more upside than Flynn no doubt, but Flynn has promise as a starter. Schaub made a successful transition from backup to starter when he went from Atlanta to Houston. Take the QB out of the picture and the Dolphins are better at every other position.

    I love the notion that Ireland and the front office of the Dolphins are worse at acquiring talent than St. Louis — but meanwhile… St. Louis is trying to poach the Dolphins Director of Player Personnel.

  59. rosloe62 says: Jan 6, 2012 3:35 PM

    So Whip…you’d rather have Bush over Jackson? Plus the Fins were the only team that wanted Marshall. So if the Rams get Blackman, in the 3 top postions, QB, RB, and WR, I’d take the Rams over the Fins. Plus, Long and Laurenitus aren’t bad choices either. Plus I’d rather have Kronkie as an owner. Miami does have better weather, that I’d take over St. Louis, minus the huricanes!
    Oh yeah, the Rams don’t have the Patriots in their division. Should be a no brainer for Fisher.

  60. raiderapologist says: Jan 6, 2012 3:38 PM

    Maybe nobody wins. I’ve got nothing against Fisher, but it’s not like his teams dominated the league the last time he coached. Same for Gruden. Dude got fired from his last job, but people talk about him like he’s the King of Coaching.

    Fisher had almost 20 years to build a team the way he wanted it. He would win one and lose one with the teams he built. After taking the year off, you expect Fisher to all of a sudden, “Get it”, and win 8 out of every 10?

    Yes the NFC west may have been friendly this year but do you really believe that or are you just falling in with the crowd? Niners, Hawks and Cards are all on the upswing.

    Pats- Brady will be gone within 3-5 years or his skills will diminish similiar to Montana when he went to the Chiefs. Hoodie will leave and they’ll be back in medocrity. Bills are eternally mediocre with Fitz at QB and the Jets, well everyone knows about them.

    You’re welcome,
    LeBron James

  67. whiplash013 says: Jan 6, 2012 4:23 PM

    rosloe, I would rather have Bush/Thomas than Jackson and the his never been backups. Jackson is old in RB years meanwhile Bush have very little mileage given his light usage in New Orleans. You can’t deny that Marshall is one of the top 10 receivers in football but you don’t know that Blackmon isn’t going to turn out to be another Crabtree. 1st round WR’s are the biggest gamble in football ask Detroit as it took them 3 first rounders to finally get Johnson. We have 4 DE’s that would start on most teams in Starks, Langford, Odrick and McDaniel and even Merling would start for a bunch of teams. With Burnett and Dansby and MLB we are set and Wake is one of the best OLB’s in football. Misi is a bit of a disappointment but I will give him another year of full time play before I rule him out as Taylor took alot of his playing time. Owner I have to agree with you on. The only thing I will say for Ross is that he is trying to do what is best for the team, he is just going about it the wrong way some times. The weather is much better in Miami for the most part and the women are much better looking too ;) We are in a slightly tougher division but the Jets really aren’t that good with Sanchez as QB and the Bills aren’t better than Seattle or Arizona. I still say I would pick the Fin’s if I were him as there is more there to build on.

    Perhaps you meant Matt Moore…who is not awesome but certainly outplayed Bradford this year.

  72. goldrush36 says: Jan 6, 2012 5:09 PM

    Was he a great coach? Nope, but he also worked for one of the absolute cheapest owners in existence. They had very little talent throughout his tenure. When he did, gee well they would leave the second their rookie deals expired because once again the owner was too cheap! Guarantee there would be no Hasselbeck AND Locker if that rookie wage scale wasn’t in place now. It would’ve been one or the other. At least Fisher is very well respected by his players and colleagues

    So now Matt Flynn is better than Sam Bradford?

    Yes. I think he is.

    Bradford seems to be the more “blessed” QB when it comes to physical skills, but he was thrown in the fire and left to burn. Flynn got to sit and learn, which for most QBs, is ideal. The only thing that might prolong Bradford’s career is the fact that he’s getting paid so much.

    Yes, I know the Rams have had some unfortunate injuries on offense, but the fact is, teams beat the Rams easily by stacking the line. If Bradford was even slightly worth his salary, he’d keep them honest. He doesn’t. You saw this in 2010 too.

    Why would he want to coach Sam “oops I hurt my vagina” Bradford?

    Keep saying the Rams have the better QB, I am just saying look at what Matt Moore did this year.

    Give him another weapon or two and you never know what may happen in Miami.

    BTW I’m loving the Dolphins fans taking jabs at the Rams, it’s like arguing you are the smartest kid in special ed. Overall talent is a wash, but I take Bradford, Jackson, Laurinitis, and Long over Moore, Bush, Dansby, and Wake any day of the week and tice on Sunday. I think any person on earth with a normal functioning brain would take Kroenke over Ross in a heartbeat as well. Hell, Ross may as well turn over operations to J-LO. Can’t be much more of a circus in the front office than it is now.

    Well if he goes to the Rams, I hope this turns out the same for the Fins as the Parcells debacle turned out for the Falcons. Anyone recall how Parcells was ready to sign with Atlanta and Wayne convinced him to sign with the Fins? Thinking the Falcs got the better of that deal. Just sayin…

    Well if Rams steals Fisher away then Miami should take it as a good omen. I mean after all they lured Jimmy Johnson away from the Bucs and the Bucs won a SB. Then they out bid the falcons for Parcells and the Falcons has had much more success since then.

    St Louis has a young roster without a lot of depth and was hit particularly hard by injuries this year. Next year the injured players will return, the young players will have a year under their belt, and the Rams should be able to auction off that #2 draft pick for a sizeable return. Too much upside.

    8-8 in St Louis and he’s a hero. 8-8 in Miami …not so much.

    Aren’t you kind of contradicting yourself when you say they have a lot of depth then go on by using injuries as an excuse for a bad year?

    Hmmm you do realize St Louis had the 2nd or 3rd OLDEST roster in the league last year don’t you?

    If you say so. The Dolphins have the better year in 2012, hands down.

    If the Rams really had overall talent as you say, they would have gutted out a few more wins. Well, actually, they DID have a brutal schedule… but at least they could have been more respectable in losses.

    The Fins were blowing people out toward the end of the year, and giving good teams a run. The Rams’ boat wasn’t floating too far from that of the Colts. They packed it in early and were positioning themselves for a high draft pick.

    I don’t understand all the hype over Fisher. He won 54% of his games and had 6 winning seasons and lost a SB, 1 yrd or 1 mile is still an L. Our hodgepodge of HC’s over the same time won 52%
    of their games with 9 winning seasons. What about Todd Bowles, he won 67% of his games as Interim Head Coach. We’d save a bunch of money to possibly invest in players. There are other non “Marquee” type coaches around the NFL that I feel could do as good of a job as JF.
    Go Fins!
