Randy Moss received a ringing endorsement from his last NFL head coach, Jeff Fisher, today. But Fisher wouldn’t say if he also wants to be Moss’s next NFL head coach.
Fisher, who coached Moss in Tennessee at the end of the 2010 season, told Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that he enjoyed the experience of coaching Moss and never saw any sign of Moss being a troublemaker.
“I thought the world of him over the six or eight weeks that I think we had him,” Fisher said. “I thought he was a terrific teammate and he did a great job in our locker room.”
The problem with Moss in Tennessee was on the field: He just wasn’t very good, catching six passes for 80 yards in eight games. And that may be why Fisher, now the head coach of the Rams, seemed hesitant to say that the Rams would have any interest.
“If he wants to come back, obviously he’s going to need to find a home,” Fisher said. “At this point, it’s too early to say.”
