Last week, it was confirmed that the Los Angeles Rams signed Jeff Fisher to a contract extension to remain head coach of the team. But apparently, something went left in a hurry. Today, the team announced that they have relieved Jeff Fisher of his coaching duties.
Fisher has been head coach and in charge of personnel since 2012, but has failed to reach the playoffs. His most recent personnel splash was drafting Jared Goff with the first overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft. However, he won’t be around to see what Goff amounts to.
Special teams coordinator John Fassel, the son of former Giants head coach Jim Fassel, has been named the team’s interim head coach.
Fisher recently said that the team had to “do a better job from a personnel standpoint,” but ultimately took responsibility for the club’s win-loss record. The Rams now join the Titans and Buccaneers, who also fired their head coaches a season after selecting a quarterback No. 1 or No. 2 overall in the draft.
