Jeff Fisher certainly has been getting around lately.
Last week, the former Titans coach was in Detroit to catch the Lions-Chargers matchup (Fisher’s son is a defensive assistant under Jim Schwartz), and before the game, Fisher was seen on the field talking to Norv Turner, likely in his last days as the San Diego head coach. The weird thing about that: Fisher has been mentioned prominently as a potential replacement for Turner.
Now, we have word (via the Tampa Bay Times) that Fisher was spotted at the Buccaneers team hotel in Atlanta on Saturday.
Although another of Fisher’s sons is a walk-on at Auburn, which beat Virginia in the Chik-Fil-A bowl on Saturday night, you have to wonder if the Buccaneers -- most likely looking to fire Raheem Morris after nine-straight losses -- spoke to Fisher about their potential future opening.
As the Times writes, Fisher would be considered one of Tampa Bay’s biggest targets if the team fires Morris.
And luckily for the rest of the NFL coaches on the hot seat, Fisher doesn’t have any more sons around the league that he can visit that would coincide with talking to another NFL team. Especially since Fisher apparently is willing to listen to anyone.
UPDATE: According to Sports Illustrated's Peter King, Fisher and the Buccaneers did NOT meet this weekend and that his appearance at the hotel was purely coincidental.
