Jeff Fisher Denies Report He’s Line To Be Coach Of XFL’s Houston Team

Update:

Jeff Fisher took to Twitter on Thursday to deny the report that he’s in line to be the head of the XFL’s Houston franchise. 


Jeff Fisher tells Charlotte Wilder that he has been contacted by the XFL but hasn’t accepted a job coaching in Houston or anywhere else at this time. 


Jason La Canfora is hearing that former Titans and Rams HC Jeff Fisher is in line to be the head coach of the XFL’s Houston team. 

Fisher recently worked for the AAF as their Head of Football Strategy before the league recently folded. 

The XFL has been slowing announcing their head coaches for their eight teams in Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, St. Louis, Seattle, Tampa Bay and Washington D.C.

Fisher has said previously that he wanted to get one more shot at coaching in the NFL, but it looks like he’ll attempt to work his way back from the XFL.

Fisher, 61, 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.

  1. Love the beatnik wording in this article. “AFTER SEVERAL YEARS WITH THE OILERS AND TITANS, FISHER WAS HIRED IN TIME FOR THE 2012 SEASON.”

    Now in reality! Jeff Fisher was HC of the Oilers/Titans franchise for nearly TWO DECADES (17 years to be exact 1994-2010). That is a far cry from several years. Then! Jeff Fisher was fired after the 2010/11 season. Fisher did NOT coach in 2011, I believe he was an ANALyst for the NCAA or NFL that one year. And in 2012 Fisher was NOT a rush hire in 2012. The article above reads Fisher was hired in time for the 2012 season. Rams’ GM Les Snead had Jeff Fisher on his radar for the Rams’ HC position all along, when Snead became GM that same year.

    As far as the XFL franchise in Houston hiring Fisher. Is this really noteworthy news?! Fisher and the rest of the AAF Brass could NOT keep that farce of a so called league from folding. Now! Fisher may become a HC in the XFL, another disaster league that will fold like a lawn chair in a few months.

    Remember! I called the AAF failing before it even started, last year. You got to have real sources before you post articles.
