Jeff Fisher Chooses St. Louis Rams

New, comments

Nearly two weeks after Jeff Fisher initially interviewed with the Miami Dolphins, Fisher this afternoon announced where he will coach in 2012: not Miami.

Fisher will coach the St. Louis Rams--an organization currently without a general manager--and has reportedly already begun assembling a coaching staff for his gig in St. Louis. The Rams are in dire need of upgrades at several key positions, but play in a lackluster NFC West division that could make the rebuild process exponentially easier for Fisher and Co.

Fisher previously coached the Houston Oilers/Tennessee Titans for over 16 seasons before his release in January 2011.

It's back to the drawing board for the Dolphins. Since their initial meeting with Fisher, the Dolphins have interviewed Chicago Bears special teams coach Dave Toub, Green Bay Packers offensive coordinator Joe Philbin and Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer.
