Jeff Fisher Hired As St. Louis Rams Coach, Spurns Miami Dolphins, According To Report

The Miami Dolphins' coaching search will have to continue, as top choice Jeff Fisher has chosen the St. Louis Rams over Miami, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Fisher, who took a year away from coaching in 2011, last coached the Tennessee Titans during the 2010 season, his 17th with the franchise dating back to its days as the Houston Oilers. He owns a career record of 142-120 and guided the Titans to Super Bowl XXXIV, where they fell to the Rams.

While the Dolphins awaited Fisher's decision, the team also interviewed other candidates, whom they'll no doubt revisit: Green Bay Packers offensive coordinator Joe Philbin, Chicago Bears special teams coordinator Dave Toub, and Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer. The team could also retain Todd Bowles, under whom Miami went 2-1 following its dismissal of Tony Sparano.
