Jeff Fisher Eyeing Browns, Colts, Bears?

Are you ready for the return of Jeff Fisher? The former Titans and Rams head coach is looking to get back in the NFL and it sounds like he has his eye on a trio of potential openings. Fisher sees himself as a fit for the Browns, Colts, and Bears, should those jobs become available, according to Mike Jurecki of 98.7 FM (Twitter link).Jeff Fisher

Despite 22 years of head coaching experience, Fisher would not be a particularly sexy hire for any NFL team. He’s had five 8-8 seasons and four 7-9 seasons (plus one 7-8-1 campaign) as head coach, a stat that seemingly overshadows his successful playoff teams in Tennessee.

Fisher’s second act with the Rams did not go as planned, but he remains extremely well connected in league circles and it would not be surprising to see him at least land an interview or two. Depending on how things go from there, Fisher could be running things on the sidelines once again.

In his nearly five year run with the Rams, Fisher went 31-45-1 with no playoff appearances. He had better success with the Titans, though they reached the Super Bowl just once in his 17 years at the helm. Overall, Fisher owns a career 173-165-1 regular season record.

No one would be surprised if the Colts and Bears part ways with Chuck Pagano and John Fox, respectively. The Browns have pledged to bring Hue Jackson back for another season, but new GM John Dorsey has sidestepped questions about Jackson’s job security.

    I’m sure he is! The question is, why would anyone be eyeing him as a candidate? Sean McVay has tossed a lot of dirt on his coaching grave. Has he improved the Rams this much, or was Jeff just that bad? Probably a bit of both.
    As a Bears fan,I say no thanks.

      They did bring in a left tackle and a whole new group of receivers.

    I’m guessing Marvin Lewis should be considered a candidate for dismissal too.

    A general consensus might be that the game has passed Jeff by. Great coach 15 years ago, but not any more.

    Just because he is eyeing these teams, the real question is, are they willing to bring him in? I’m thinking around 7 or 8 teams will be looking for new head coaches this offseason.

    I literally laugh out loud every time i read one of these headlines. This guy is beyond delusional. I also heard he wants to give Tavon Austin another contract extension

    As a Browns fan 7-9 sounds amazing but we’ll pass as well.

    The Browns will never give him enough time to succeed. The Bears will hire him if he agrees to work for free. The Colts will probably take him as he does *bleep* all to improve the offense.

    harbaugh to the Colts. Jim and Luck together again.

    The browns should get Fisher he has a consistency to get more than 5 wins which is 5 more than this team will see this year and 4 more than their avg.

    If the Bears hire Fisher, I will no longer be a Bears fan.

      Not only that, anyone who’s a Bears fan should automatically boycott the franchise. What a joke it would be if they did indeed hire Fisher

    As his former teammate Dan Hampton said Sunday night on Fox he will never be a HC in the NFL again. As Hawk Harrelson says He Gone

    He should get a job due to all his success with 7-9 teams

    Jeff Fisher and the Bears both sucks. So that would be the perfect match made there.

    You would think the Browns would be overjoyed to have him as a coach. A 7-9 season should feel like a huge victory. I feel sorry for you guys and wouldn’t wish him on anyone but he has to be better than what you’ve had.

    After the crummy job Fisher did with the Rams why should he ever be considered for a head coaching job?
