Jeff Fisher to Coach the Miami Dolphins?

In the wake of firing head coach Tony Sparano, it seems that the Miami Dolphins have their eyes set on an even bigger prize – former Tennessee Titans coach Jeff Fisher.

Fisher, who led the Titans franchise for 17 seasons before taking a “break” in 2011, interviewed Tuesday in Miami in hopes of becoming the new head coach of the Dolphins.

A person familiar with the Miami coaching search said that Fisher was interviewing for the job and the former head coach showed up at the Mimi Dolphins’ complex on Jan. 3. The source was the only confirmation for the interview because the Dolphins hadn’t commented.

However, ESPN also reported that Fisher was interviewing for the position.

Fisher arrived in Miami aboard the owner’s helicopter and is believed to be the Dolphins’ top choice.

ESPN added that Fisher is the second candidate to interview for a vacancy created when the Dolphins fired Sparano with three games remaining in the regular season. Assistant head coach Todd Bowles, who took over on an interim basis, was interviewed Monday.

The Dolphins are also expected to interview Chicago Bears special teams coordinator Dave Toub on Wednesday.

In his 17 year career in Tennessee, Jeff Fisher went 147-126 and led them to the Super Bowl in 1999.

Here is a clip by ESPN’s John Clayton discussing Jeff Fisher’s options to return as an NFL headcoach. Other clubs interested in Fisher include the St. Louis Rams, the Kansas City Chiefs, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
