It feels like we’ve been talking about Rams coach Jeff Fisher getting a contract extension since the offseason before news broke on Sunday morning of agreement on a two-year extension, but it was actually old news.
Reports that Fisher signed the extension weeks ago were off by a bit as well. It was actually months ago. Fisher confirmed that he signed an extension with the team after the Rams fell to 4-8 in a 26-10 loss to the Patriots on Sunday afternoon.
“This was done well before the season started,” Fisher said.
The team’s performance this season could affect the team’s decision to see out even the first year of the extension, but the fact that the Rams have made it clear that they are looking at more than wins and losses suggests he remains on track for 2017 at this point.
Fisher, who now stands one loss away for tying Dan Reeves with the most of any coach, has four weeks to avoid 7-9 BS, although the Rams will have to win out for that to be a good thing.
