Jeff Fisher Expected To Call At Least One Game For FOX In September


Andrew Marchand of the New York Post reports that former NFL head coach Jeff Fisher is scheduled to be an analyst on one NFL game during the first half of the upcoming season.

The plan, according to Marchand, is for Fisher to be paired with play-by-player Dan Hellie on the Jets-Jaguars broadcast on Sept. 30.

While a report from Wednesday mentioned that Fisher could have a larger with FOX and server as their No. 2 analyst role behind Troy Aikman while being featured on either of their two NFL Sunday pregame shows, Marchand mentions that the plan, for now, is just one regional game with the opportunity to possibly do more games or studio work down the line.

Fisher has said previously that wants to get one more shot at coaching in the NFL, but it looks like he’s at least considering the possibility of working in television.

Fisher, 60, began his coaching career with the Bears back in 1985 as a defensive assistant. He worked for the Eagles, Rams, 49ers and Oilers before he was hired as head coach of the Houston/Tennessee franchise in 1995.

After several years with the Oilers and Titans, Fisher was hired by the Rams in time for the 2012 season.

During his 22-year coaching career, Fisher has won 173 games and lost 165 to go along with one tie (51.2 percent). His teams have made the playoffs six times including one trip to the Super Bowl back in 1999 while he was with the Titans.
