Jeff Fisher is a former professional football coach, cornerback and return specialist. After playing college football at University of Southern California, he was drafted in the seventh round of the 1981 NFL Draft by the Chicago Bears, playing with the Bears for five seasons.
He served as an NFL head coach for 22 seasons, primarily with the Houston and the Tennessee. He coached the Titans for 17 seasons and the St. Louis Rams (Los Angeles) for five seasons. Fisher became head coach of the Titans towards the end of the 1994 season during their tenure as the Houston Oilers, and was the team's first coach when they relocated to Tennessee. He continued to coach the Titans until after the end of the 2010 season when the Titans and Fisher mutually agreed to part ways. Following a season away from football, Fisher was hired as the head coach of the Rams in 2012 and coached the team during their last four years in St. Louis. He remained the head coach of the Rams during the franchise's return to Los Angeles in 2016, but was fired near the end of the season. Fisher's most successful season was in 1999, when he led the Titans to the franchise's first (and only) Super Bowl appearance in XXXIV, which ended in close defeat by the St. Louis Rams for their first Super Bowl title.
Fisher was co-chair of the NFL competition committee along with Atlanta Falcons President Rich McKay until his resignation in August 2016.
