Jeff Fisher will face Dolphins in 2012
By James Walker
Jeff Fisher is coming to Miami!
But it's not what you think, Dolphin fans.
Fisher didn't suddenly have a change of heart and will coach the Dolphins next season. But Fisher will be on the sidelines in Sun Life Stadium in 2012 for one game when the Rams visit Miami. The AFC East will play the NFC West next season, and this adds some intrigue to an otherwise bland matchup.
The new Rams head coach went from a potential hero to not well liked in Miami on Friday after holding both teams hostage for more than a week, then picking St. Louis. It was a drawn-out process that left the Dolphins without a coach and looking into Plan B.
But Miami will get a chance for revenge against Fisher on the field next season. The NFL will announce its 2012 schedule in the spring.
