NFL rumors: Jeff Fisher eyeing three teams in potential coaching return
With the 2017 NFL regular season coming to a close, the time for offseason speculation is set to begin. Per usual, there are a number of teams whose head coaches have landed on the hot seat after a disappointing year.
As a result, one free agent coach, in particular, has come out of the woodwork looking for another opportunity in the NFL. Following a year-long hiatus from the league, former Los Angeles Rams head coach Jeff Fisher is keeping a close watch on the Chicago Bears, Indianapolis Colts, and Chicago Bears as potential landing spots, according to Mike Jurecki of “The Blitz.”
Jeff Fisher wants to get back into the NFL next year, could be eyeing three jobs if they open: Cleveland, Indy and Chicago. Fisher buyout from the Rams was $16M.

As many already know, Fisher led a tumultuous 2016 campaign in the Rams’ debut season back in Los Angeles. His performance has since been magnified by not only the current success the Rams are enjoying, but the stellar seasons some of his former players are having as well.
There is some speculation that Fisher’s history as a member of the 1985 Bears could potentially get him into the room there. However, it is difficult to imagine any of the teams listed are willing to give him a chance given his history with quarterbacks. It just so happens that each of these teams is having glaring issues with their perspective signal callers.
