Longtime Titans Coach Jeff Fisher not Returning to Coaching this Year

For those who want to see Jeff Fisher back on the NFL sidelines, you’re going to have to wait until 2012. While preparing for his annual charity softball game, Fisher told the Asheville Citizen-Times that it’ll be at least six more months until he thinks about his next coaching gig.

“That’s going to be a January thing. That’s next year. I don’t think much about it. I don’t pay much attention to it,” Fisher said.

After 16 seasons as the Tennessee Titans coach, Fisher parted ways with the organization in January, a move that many saw coming after Tennessee’s disappointing 6-10 season. He was formerly the league’s longest-tenured head man.

Lockout or not, he won’t be back until at least next year.

Don’t fret for Fish, though. He’ll be enjoying the time away from the game, and the opportunity to indulge in his favorite hobbies: hunting, fishing, and watching his son play football for Auburn.

“First time I’ve had a spring, a summer, a fall. I’ve not seen Montana in the fall, so I’m going to do a lot of that stuff,” Fisher said.

When January rolls around, Fisher should expect to receive a ton of interest as one of the hottest coaching commodities available. Ultimately, it’ll be up to Fisher to decide if he’s ready to trade in the fishing pole for a head set.
