We may be misinformed here, but we don’t think LA Rams management watched Monday Night Football this week.
Just 3 days after being embarrassingly blown on on Monday Night Football, a game which a streaker racked up more yards than the Rams offensive, the team has all but signed sealed the deal with head coach Jeff Fisher for a three-year contract extension, per ESPN’s John Clayton.
According to SI.com, Clayton said on 710 ESPN Radio in Seattle that Fisher’s extension would be finalized soon and would be announced along with a new deal for defensive tackle Michael Brockers.
Last month, ESPN reported that new deals were forthcoming for both Fisher and general manager Les Snead.
The 50-year-old coach is the final year of his contract with the team this season, looking for his first winning season with the Rams since becoming head coach. Fisher, who somehow had had a reputation as one of the league’s best coaches has a 27–37–1 record in four season with the Rams and has only reached the playoffs six times in 21 seasons, going 142–120 over that span.
Fisher’s 157 losses are third-most in NFL history among head coaches, and he is nine defeats from setting the all-time record.
