Jeff Fisher Is 'More Likely' Than Josh McDaniels To Replace Todd Haley

The rumor mill will continue to churn for some time, but it’s likely that Scott Pioli has a contender in mind for who he would like to replace Todd Haley as the head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs. After all, it doesn’t make sense to make a move like this unless you already have a good idea of who you are going after. Some have mentioned names like Kirk Ferentz and Josh McDaniels and Jeff Fisher and those are all good guesses. Russ Lande of Sporting News says that Fisher is the one.

He writesWhile everyone is already talking about [Josh] McDaniels in KC, we have heard Jeff Fisher is the more likely guy right now." Fisher certainly has proved more on the NFL level than McDaniels has. At one point, McDaniels’ stock was red hot as an offensive coordinator and assistant coach for the New England Patriots, but since that time, he’s served as the offensive coordinator for the 32nd ranked offense in the NFL this season with the Rams and had a failed head coaching stint for the Broncos.

Fisher, meanwhile, was just fired after going 6-10 last season in his 17th year with the Tennessee Titans. Overall, however, he has a 142-120 head coaching record.
