Jeff Fisher will officially be introduced as Rams coach Tuesday after finalizing the terms of a five-year contract.
Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports its “believed” Fisher will earn roughly $7 million-per-year to coach the Rams. So if he’s taking less money than he would have in Miami, it’s not much less.
Fisher is not expected to have any additional titles like “executive vice president.” He may wind up with final say on personnel matters, but Thomas says it won’t be a “my way or else” proposition.
Thomas writes that Fisher will at least be on equal footing with any personnel chief, but it’s safe to say the coach will have more power. He’ll likely have final say on the roster and be involved with the general manager search.
While Hue Jackson is talking with Fisher about the offensive coordinator gig, Thomas believes that former Jets offensive coordinator Brian Schottheimer remains the favorite for that job. Dave McGinnis, Chuck Cecil, Tim Hauck, and Fisher’s son Brandon are mentioned as other staff possibilities.
