St. Louis Rams Zeroing In On Jeff Fisher As New Head Coach

If the Kansas City Chiefs are truly interested in Jeff Fisher as a possibility as their new head coach, they’re going to have to win his services above other teams. The St. Louis Rams are definitely among the frontrunners as they’ve already reportedly scheduled an interview.

“Though the St. Louis Rams were not one of the two teams listed as the favorites for Jeff Fisher in the report from CBS Sports’ Mike Freeman earlier on Monday,” writes Tim Kavanagh, "they will be getting a crack at him in the very near future. Just hours after Steve Spagnuolo’s firing was officially announced, Peter King of Sports Illustrated reported that Fisher will be interviewing with the Rams this week.

“Interestingly, King adds that the Rams will interview Fisher, then attempt to find a new general manager afterwards. This means that Fisher could have some say in who this hypothetical GM would be, and one name to keep in mind in that case is New England Patriots senior adviser Floyd Reese (though we stress that this is speculation). Reese was the Tennessee Titans’ general manager from 1994 through 2006, and though things ended in somewhat acrimonious fashion, the two did have an effective working relationship prior to that.”
