Report: Jeff Fisher will call at least one NFL game on FOX
Jeff Fisher is going to have to wait at least another season if he is ever going to be a head coach in the NFL again, but it sounds like he has found another way to stay around the league in the short-term.
Andrew Marchand of the New York Post reports that Fisher is scheduled to be a part of FOX’s NFL coverage for the 2018 season, though it’s unclear how significant his role will be. At the minimum, the former Los Angeles Rams coach is set to serve as an analyst for the Sept. 30 game between the New York Jets and Jacksonville Jaguars alongside play-by-play announcer Dan Hellie. Marchand notes that more opportunities could open up for Fisher, but for now that is the only gig he has lined up.
Fisher was reportedly eyeing some of the coaching vacancies that opened up in the NFL at the end of last season, but there are no indications that he was considered for any of them. The 60-year-old is said to be looking for revenge if he ever gets another head coaching job in the NFL, but his 165 losses are tied for the most in league history. It would not be a surprise if his NFL head coaching days are over.
