Rams Reach Five-Year Deal With Jeff Fisher; Will Introduce At Tuesday Press Conference

The St. Louis Rams have agreed to a contract with their new head coach, Jeff Fisher. Adam Schefter reported on Monday evening that the Rams and Fisher agreed to a five year deal. Fisher will sign the deal on Tuesday.

Terms, Tuesday's press conference and more after the jump.

Terms of Fisher's deal with the Rams are unknown at this time. He was expected to earn a handsome salary that would make him one of the highest paid coaches in the league. He was slated to make $6.5 million with the Titans in 2011, before he and the team decided to part ways after the 2010 season. Fisher's deal with the Rams would almost certainly have that figure as a floor, and it's likely to be closer to $7 million per season. The Dolphins were rumored to be willing to pay Fisher $8 million per season.

Fisher will be introduced at a 1:00 p.m. press conference at the team facility tomorrow. The event will be available via streaming video, and we'll have complete coverage here at TST.

Fisher's introduction as the Rams new head coach comes barely two weeks after the team fired Steve Spagnuolo and Billy Devaney. Owner Stan Kroenke interviewed Fisher on Jan. 4 and 5 in Denver, and he visited Rams Park on Jan. 8. A week of deliberation followed, in which his whim was filtered up from Twitter to the nightly news. Fisher let Kroenke know on Thursday, Jan. 12, that he would take the job with the Rams, and news of his decision broke Friday afternoon, leaked out of the Dolphins organization after he let them know his decision.
