Jeff Fisher has the itch to coach again

Jeff Fisher wants to get back on the sideline and coach again in the NFL. For the sake of comedic relief, we’re rooting for the coach to succeed.

Fisher was visited by the folks of Amazon’s All or Nothing series, and he revealed his desire to get back into coaching.

“I want to get back on the sideline,” Fisher says (h/t Pro Football Talk). “Not going to happen this year, obviously. We’ll just see what happens.”

Before being fired last year, he racked up 22 years of NFL head coaching experience, earning a career record of 173-165-1 as the head coach of the St. Louis/Los Angeles Chargers and Tennessee Titans/Oilers/Houston Oilers dating back to 1994.

In his entire career, Fisher’s teams played in just 11 playoff games. His 1999 Titans team famously came about a half yard short of winning the Super Bowl against “The Best Show on Turf” Rams. But other than that, Fisher’s playoff record is dismal (2-5).

Should Fisher get another shot at coaching an NFL team?

Probably not.

Will Fisher get another shot at coaching an NFL team?

Yeah, he probably will. Because it’s not what you know sometimes in life, it’s who you know. And Fisher has strong connections within the NFL. At least we know he’s not satisfied with an 8-8 team, right?

And heck, if Fisher does come back, at least we’ll be assured he’ll finally break a dubious record that the Rams wouldn’t allow him to break on their watch.
