Miami Dolphins Coaching News: Jeff Fisher To Receive Rich Offer From Miami

The Miami Dolphins are prepared to make Jeff Fisher a lucrative offer to become their next coach--the most lucrative one he'll receive from any team, reports Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, citing two sources. Stephen Ross, the team's owner, "has the deep pockets necessary to pay what he must to hire Fisher," Salguero says. In addition, Ross does not want the public to get the impression that he will settle for anything less than the best.

However, Fisher joining the Dolphins is by no means guaranteed. The longtime Tennessee Titans coach has also drawn interest from the St. Louis Rams and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and might be willing to take a paycut to work in those organizations. Among Fisher's "concerns," says Salguero, is "the team's structure."

Fisher went 142-120 in 17 seasons with the Titans franchise, dating back to its days as the Houston Oilers.

Miami fired coach Tony Sparano during the 2011 season, which started with seven straight losses. Sparano's record before getting canned stood at 4-9; interim head coach Todd Bowles went 2-1.
