Jeff Fisher eyeing only Miami, St. Louis
ESPN.com news services
Jeff Fisher said Friday he is considering coaching next season in only two places, Miami or St. Louis, and that he will make his decision next week.
The former Tennessee Titans coach declined to comment further when speaking to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
Fisher interviewed for the Rams' coaching job Thursday after previously meeting with the Dolphins.
St. Louis has also received permission to interview Cardinals defensive coordinator Ray Horton, a league source told ESPN's Schefter. The Rams planned to meet Friday with Horton.
The Rams are searching for Steve Spagnuolo's replacement. Spagnuolo was fired Monday after going 10-38 over three seasons.
Some around the league believe Fisher would lean toward the Rams, if they make an offer, because they have a franchise-caliber quarterback in Sam Bradford and the No. 2 overall pick in April's draft.
Fisher sat out the entire 2011 season after being fired by the Titans last January. He had served as coach of the franchise for 16 full seasons, including before the Titans moved from Houston to Tennessee.
Information from ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter and The Associated Press was included in this report.
