We’ve been hearing about potential extensions for Rams coach Jeff Fisher and GM Les Snead for some time now, but as of this writing, there’s still no deal for either of them, a source tells Mike Florio of PFT. However, the source also says that there is no deadline for the talks, so deals could theoretically be struck during the season.
The Rams haven’t had the best results on the field under Fisher and Snead. In his four years at the helm of the Rams, Fisher’s teams have compiled a 27-36-1 record and have never gone .500 or better during an individual campaign. However, after moving halfway across the country, owner Stan Kroenke reportedly wants to ensure some stability going forward.
Fisher is currently among the NFL’s highest-paid coaches at $7MM annually and it’s not clear if the Rams are willing to give him any sort of raise on that on a new deal. Prior to joining the Rams, Fisher experienced success atop the Titans organization, going 142-120 in 17 years and helping lead the club to six playoff appearances and a Super Bowl XXXIV berth to conclude the 1999-2000 season.
