Jeff Fisher picked the Rams over the Dolphins, CBSSports.com's Mike Freeman has confirmed.

Latest Coaching Rumors, News

Fisher stated last week that he was down to two choices: Miami and St. Louis. One (Miami) featured an owner willing to pay big, big bucks. The other (St. Louis) featured a young, star quarterback in Sam Bradford, potentially more front office control and the No. 2 pick in the 2012 NFL Draft.

Fisher chose the latter and he'll be roaming the sidelines for the Rams in 2012.

"I'm pumped," fullback Britt Miller told The Associated Press. "I figured that because he wanted a little more control that Miami was probably not the place for him. I'm really pumped."

Fisher's been the hottest coaching name this offseason, getting mentioned in rumors involving the Rams, Dolphins, Colts, Buccaneers and even the not-even-vacant position in Chicago, which was supposedly Fisher's dream job.

It's believed that Fisher could bring current Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, who worked with Fisher in Tennessee, to join him in St. Louis.

Momentum reportedly swung back to the Dolphins earlier in the week, but here's an interesting tidbit from Yahoo Sports Mike Silver: Fisher was willing to meet Dolphins owner Stephen Ross "halfway" on personnel matters, letting general manager Jeff Ireland still retain plenty of power. However, Ross/Ireland reportedly weren't willing to budge and it may have ultimately cost them a chance to land Fisher.

Reports also indicate that Fisher will choose his own general manager in St. Louis, so the amount of leverage he pulled out of these two teams really can't be overstated.

Jeff Fisher's agent is Marvin Demoff. Rams executive negotiating the deal is Kevin Demoff, Marvin's son.

It all becomes clear now !

IF the queen had balls she would be king St. Louis WILLY. Enjoy the mustache while the Rams are still in town.


Please dont talk about the queen like that, as an englishman thats highly offensive !!! If you must know she's part german and therefore very hairy but no balls, ha ha.

Back to Fisher, if I was a fin fan I'd be really annoyed that he would rather go the rams rather than coach miami (Even if it was only down to money)

Hey FinsFreak......I would agree that you are crazy. Nice try on rationalizing, though.

"Plus, if it was not for a great tackle on the 1yd line (by the RAMS) he would have a championship. " 

No if they had scored, it would of only tied the game.

I dont get it. Whats the fascination with Fisher? He has as many super bowl wins as a head coach as I do.
I'm in STL and very happy he's coming.  Maybe he does not have the rings... but he always puts out a team that can compete.  Plus, if it was not for a great tackle on the 1yd line (by the RAMS) he would have a championship. 

This is a MAJOR improvement for us.  We will have a better winning percentage that dolphins over the next few years, hands down.
