    Does anyone think fish gets hired as HC for another other team ? Is anyone showing interest in him? I find it hard to believe he will, but I been pretty busy with my parents so I didn't see much news.

    I'll forego all the obvious jokes about what a piece of crap he is.
    Because I don't feel he is.

    But ... who knows? I can see him taking a year or two off, because teams are always hiring HC's every year.
    Probably best to let the disappointment of his tenure fade away before putting his name back out there.

    Never again will Jeff Fisher be a professional HC...without some serious rehabilitation. He needs to grab a college team and win big.

    Boras & Weinke will never coach at those positions again (OC & QB coach)....Coach Boo is done too...

    I think he has to start back up as a defensive coordinator like Jack Del Rio did.

    Yea, I'm not going to call him names and such. But he is the definition of mediocre. I would be pretty surprised to see him as a HC in the nfl.

    I think this will happen in Fishers case! I can think of at least one team that could use him as DC right now!!
    Buffalo! after getting rid of Rex, who ruined their "D" by trying to change it from a 4/3 to a 3/4. IMHO!
    I think they will want someone to change it back!!

    Well, if someone does hire him as a HC, then they need to FORCE him to hire a good OC and explicitly instruct him not to meddle. He just seems to have some sort of revulsion to having a quality OC and a quality offense, or even a coherent one for that matter. He did a good job with the Rams in 2 out of 3 phases of the game, but in the third one his teams were miserable and that's what pulled him under and cost him his job.

    He is a "name" coach, and he's connected, so there will be interest.

    My hunch is he takes a year off, and/or serves as a DC, first.

    IDK. I don't see Fisher taking a DC job.
    He is connected and respected. He may already have offers in broadcasting or even working for the league.

    He will eventually gun for the USC job after a year or two out of ball. That type of deal is his way back in, by rebuilding his brand. And it might be good for him too, as IMO he is a coach who rose too fast and didn't learn enough on the way up. I know some will question that, but look at his performances as DC, he never really killed it like a lot of guys have to in order to be noticed.

    I don't hate Fish, even if it does irk me that he's shooting his mouth off now. Had nothing but hope for him all the way through, but thank God he's gone.

    He's going to coach the 9ers and they are gonna resign kapernick. Honestly I feel like he would do good there he always seems to do good with a running QB think Steve McNair and Vince young. I also think that's why he liked case Keenum so much

    Maybe as a DC... but if a team hires him as HC and gives him control over personnel? God help that team!

    I've said for a while now I think his next job is USC Athletic Director. Lynn Swann isn't a young man anymore and I think his tenure in the position will be short lived.

    I agree, Fisher needs some of that humble pie if he's going to change his old school philosophies.

    JMHO, of course, but I can't see him coaching in any capacity other than HC...After 20+ years as the head honcho, no way he takes a coordinator job...

    I think he takes a year off and a team hires him as HC in 2018. Let's hope we have some success. I would love to see a Rams vs. Fisher match-up in 2018.

    Fisher's a good guy. No doubt about that.

    But even if he was to become a HC somewhere and hire a proven offensive guy and not meddle on that side of the ball, I still think he'd create a culture where he'd still be the players' best friend which would ultimately be his undoing.

    The man has too many flaws to overcome in my view.

    I personally think he should go be a DC under a good offensive coach (or a team with a good OC) ... and while he's not coordinating the defense, look at what they are doing on offense. That's where he was deficient with the Rams.
