Report: Jeff Fisher on verge of deal with Rams Add to ...

Jeff Fisher could be on the verge of becoming head coach of the Rams after taking a tour of the team’s facilities Sunday, according to multiple reports.

Fisher interviewed with the Miami Dolphins on Tuesday and was in Denver two days later to interview with Rams owner Stan Kroenke. He announced on Friday that he would choose from those franchises rather than continue his job search.

Fisher spent 16 years with the Titans before he resigned amidst an ongoing difference of opinion with owner Bud Adams. He did not coach in 2011.

Indications are that Miami is prepared to pay Fisher more than $6 million annually, but that Fisher believes St. Louis is in better position to contend in the near future with a franchise quarterback in Sam Bradford and the No. 2 overall pick in April.

According to a Sports Illustrated report, Lake Dawson, Titans vice president of football operations, is the leading candidate for the GM opening with the Rams. Dawson worked for the previous four years with Fisher in Tennessee, and the former Chiefs’ receiver is considered a candidate regardless of how the Fisher talks turn out.
