Zero Winning Seasons Since ’08, Rams Sign Jeff Fisher to 2-Year Extension
The Rams came back to the Los Angeles area this past offseason and it started off great with a 3-1 record, but then the wheels came flying off, as they seem to always do with Jeff Fisher being the head coach.
Sitting at 4-7 now and on the cusp of yet another losing season, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport has reported the organization has signed Fisher to a 2-year extension.
Rams COO Kevin Demoff defended Fisher and his coaching performance earlier this year.
“Everybody will want to judge Jeff through the prism of just the record, but that’s totally unfair when you look at the set of circumstances he was handed this year. It was different than any team in the NFL. We moved halfway across the country, then had OTAs in Oxnard. Training camp was in Irvine, now we’re in Thousand Oaks. We moved coaches and players and families. To provide leadership and consistency, he’s done a model job.”
Fisher hasn’t had a winning season since 2008 and has 6 winning seasons in 22 years of coaching.
