Jeff Fisher reportedly in talks with FOX

By STATS LLC Editorial
Jeff Fisher, who has coached in the NFL for 22 seasons, is in talks with FOX about joining the network's team as an analyst in the studio or the booth, the Sporting News reported on Wednesday.
FOX will begin hosting Thursday Night Football this season with its No. 1 team of Joe Buck and Troy Aikman in the booth. Indications are that means Buck and Aikman will take some Sundays off.
The 60-year-old Fisher has said he would prefer another coaching job in the NFL, but FOX has invested an additional $550 million per year for the broadcast rights to "Thursday Night Football" and might make him an offer he can't refuse.
Fisher has coached the Houston/Tennessee Oilers/Titans and the St. Louis/Los Angeles Rams, compiling a 173-165-1 in the regular season and 5-6 mark in the postseason.
His 165 regular season losses are tied for the most in NFL history. He led Tennessee to the 1999 Super Bowl and has reached the postseason six times.
Fisher played cornerback at USC before being selected in the seventh round (177th overall) of the 1981 NFL Draft by the Chicago Bears. He played his entire career with the Bears from 1981-85 before becoming a defensive assistant on the Chicago staff.
