Rams coach Jeff Fisher doesn’t have a contract extension. Unless he does.
In recent days, rumors have emerged in some circles that Fisher quietly has signed an extension that has not yet been announced. On Thursday, reporters asked Fisher about those whispers.
“I never talk about my personal stuff or my extensions or non-extensions or anything,” Fisher said. “That’s between me and the organization.”
Discretion would make sense, given the reaction by plenty of fans in the offseason to news that an extension for Fisher was looming. “Why?” has the most common refrain, and news of a new deal for Fisher in the wake of a 28-0 loss to the 49ers in Week One would not have been the best way to cement the bond with a potentially fickle L.A. fan base.
If Fisher does indeed have a deal in place, look for it to be announced after the team scores a significant victory this year. If/when a significant victory happens.
Meanwhile, count on discretion to continue. After all, Fisher’s agent won’t blab; his agent is Marvin Demoff, the father of Rams COO Kevin Demoff.
