St. Louis Rams Hire Jeff Fisher
Well the courtship of Jeff Fisher between the Miami Dolphins and St. Louis Rams finally came to an end on Friday as it was announced that Jeff Fisher will be the next head coach of the St. Louis Rams. Stan Kronke got his man and in Fisher the Rams fans get what they have wanted for over a decade, an experienced head coach to take over their struggling franchise.
Just those two small words (Jeff Fisher) make you feel the Rams are tenacious. Jeff Fisher was a small scrappy 5'-10" 185 lb cornerback from USC and a 7th round pick of the Chicago Bears back in 1981. Fisher managed to made the team and play for the Bears for 4 seasons. In 1985 Fisher started his coaching career with the Bears as their defensive assistant, and has coached 26 seasons in the NFL. Fisher was head coach of the Tennessee Titans where he had a 142-120 record.
Last year the San Francisco 49ers hired Jim Harbaugh another former Chicago Bears player and they immediately took on his personality. If the Rams have the same luck Jeff Fisher will instill in them a hard-nosed scrappy punch you in the mouth attitude that was severely lacking under Steve Spagnuolo's 4 pillar approach.
