Jeff Fisher Finalist For Dolphins, Rams Head Coaching Gigs According To Adam Schefter

The Jeff Fisher sweepstakes are finally nearing their completion after a round of rumors and interviews that included nearly every head coaching opening in the NFL. It’s clear the former Tennessee Titans coach was a hot commodity after 17 years in a head coaching position, and Adam Schefter reports that it will either be the Miami Dolphins or St. Louis Rams who walk away the winners.

The Kansas City Chiefs reportedly met with Fisher last week for an interview, so they were among those interested enough to check him out. However, the Rams and Dolphins emerged as frontrunners and both have been vying for an experienced head coach already. Jon Gruden was mentioned in both places as well.

The Rams are looking to move on after the Steve Spagnuolo hiring failed to work out. Spags has been rumored for the Eagles defensive coordinator position for the last week or more, but that will be interesting since he left there with some bad blood just a few years ago.

The Dolphins present a nice job in South Florida for Fisher yet the Rams roster might be in a better position for a new coach looking to take over. They have a franchise quarterback based on Sam Bradford’s rookie year and they have the No. 2 pick in the NFL Draft. The Dolphins, meanwhile, have a better defense and could turn things around quicker.

Either way, the Chiefs will be moving on — likely to keep Romeo Crennel in house. However, the Chiefs are still connected with other candidates, so anything is possible at this point.
