Jeff Fisher has accepted an offer to coach the St. Louis Rams. The person confirmed the agreement to The Associated Press on Friday on condition of anonymity because the hiring hadn’t been announced.

Everyone thought Fisher was headed to the Miami Dolphins, who had been wooing him. After all he was the prize prospect for all the open head coaching positions in the NFL this off-season.

Fisher stepped down a year ago as the league’s longest-tenured coach (17 years with the Tennessee Titans), saying he needed a break, and sat out last season. He took the team to within a yard of a Super Bowl title in 2000; losing to coincidentally, the St. Louis Rams.

Why did he pick the Rams over Miami? The Stl. has 2010 #1 overall pick Sam Bradford at quarterback, the #2 overall pick in this year’s draft and a favorable salary-cap situation.
