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.
