The Los Angeles Rams have fired Jeff Fisher.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported this a few minutes ago.
Rams owner and chairman, Stanley Kroenke, said this was a difficult decision to make.
“Making a decision such as this—especially during the season—is one of the most difficult in sports,” Kroenke said in a press release.
“He has worked tirelessly despite some challenging circumstances. He played an integral role in helping this team make history in returning the NFL to Los Angles, and we always will be grateful for his commitment and dedication to our organization.”
“However, this is the right time to make a change as our performance has not lived up to my or our fans expectation. We all are focused on improving as an organization and building a team that makes Los Angeles proud. Our mission is to celebrate s Super Bowl title with our fans in Los Angeles. Today is the first step to bringing us closer to our goal.”
While Fisher experienced success with the Tennessee Titans at the height of one Steve McNair’s career, earning a trip to the Super Bowl against the Rams in 1999, since 2012 as the head coach of the Rams, he was only 31-45-1.
