During a Friday morning press conference to address his departure as head coach of the Tennessee Titans, Jeff Fisher was asked if he’d take another coaching job this season.
“I think I’m tired,” Fisher said. “I need to rest.”
ESPN linked Fisher to the vacant Philadelphia Eagles defensive coordinator position, but that report has been dismissed and characterized as “crazy” by sources close to the Eagles.
A more likely scenario would have Fisher working as an analyst, perhaps alongside Brian Billick and Jim Mora on the NFL Network’s “Coach’s Show” or in a studio role with one of the networks’ pre-game shows on Sunday (or Monday), and in the mix for NFL and NCAA head coaching opportunities in 2012.
Titans offensive line coach Mike Munchak is the in-house favorite to replace Fisher in 2011.
