Jeff Fisher Chooses St. Louis Rams Over the Miami Dolphins

MIAMI (AP) — The Miami Dolphins must quickly hit the reset button in their coaching search.

Jeff Fisher turned down the Dolphins’ offer and instead accepted a job coaching the St. Louis Rams, a person familiar with the decision said Friday. The person confirmed the agreement to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the hiring hadn’t been announced.

Fisher, who coached the Titans franchise for 17 years, was Miami’s first choice and widely considered the top prize on the NFL coaching market. Owner Stephen Ross wanted to make a splash by hiring a coach who would reinvigorate the fan base, and Fisher offered the best chance to do that.

Fisher took the Titans to their first, and only, Super Bowl against the St. Louis Rams after the 1999 season.
