St. Louis Rams head coach Jeff Fisher is making the media rounds lately, helping put his new team back on the national radar. Fisher is squeezing in media appearances between the search for his coaching staff. During a Thursday appearance on the Jim Rome radio show, Fisher said that he hopes to have his offensive coordinator hired within the next two to three days.
The list of potential offensive coordinators is so far limited to just two names: Brian Schottenheimer and Hue Jackson. Over the weekend, Michael Lombardi of the NFL Network even reported that Schottenheimer had been hired, following a Sunday interview with Fisher. That turned out to be a little premature as news broke on Monday that Hue Jackson would get some face time with Fisher for the gig.
Fisher and Jackson met yesterday, as reported by multiple outlets including Jim Thomas at the Post-Dispatch. We reported last night, per sources, that Fisher met Jackson in Cincinnati at the Cincinnatian Hotel.
Both Jackson and Schottenheimer have been interviewed, and now we wait. With no other candidates known to be in the mix, it's probably a safe assumption that one of these two guys will get the job.
Fisher has already hired Gregg Williams as the team's defensive coordinator.
