Jeff Fisher was “in line” to coach the Houston XFL franchise on Thursday, until he wasn’t. Jason La Canfora had the report on this, and then Fisher brutally shot it down on Twitter.
Savage burn by the veteran coach.
For what it’s worth, Charlotte Wilder of Sports Illustrated did speak to Fisher after the initial report broke and the former coach did say he was contacted by the XFL. However, he also told her that he had not accepted a job in Houston or anywhere else.
