In about a month, NFL teams will be firing coaches and looking for their replacements. One NFL head coach, Jack Del Rio, is already gone. Others, including St. Louis Rams head coach Steve Spagnuolo, appear to be dead men walking. Rumors about potential coaching candidates are already surfacing, and Jason LaCanfora of the NFL Network is reporting that two NFL teams have already reached out to Jeff Fisher, the former Tennessee Titans head coach.
LaCanfora does not say which teams have been in touch with Fisher so far. Given his track record in Tennessee, Fisher will be one of the most in-demand candidates for teams. He figures to have his choice of vacancies.
With Steve Spagnuolo on the chopping block - remember, some are reporting that Stan Kroenke has already made up his mind - the Rams are one of several potential suitors for Fisher. There's also a connection. Rams COO Kevin Demoff's father, Marv, is Fisher's agent.
