NFL: No decision yet on Fisher
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Titans owner Bud Adams still has his coach in Jeff Fisher, and a quarterback in Vince Young. Fisher says talks are ongoing in what he calls a complicated process.
Fisher did his weekly radio show Tuesday night as scheduled from a restaurant at a Nashville suburb. His job status has been in question since the Titans lost eight of their final nine games for a 6-10 record, but the NFL’s uncertain labor situation could keep him around.
If Fisher stays, Young isn’t expected to remain after a blowup with the coach in front of the team after a game Nov. 21.
“We didn’t anticipate coming to any decisions or conclusions or solutions, if you will, today,” Fisher said at the start of his show. “Talks have been ongoing. As I said yesterday, it’s a process. It’s a complicated process, and there’s a lot of moving parts. We’re all trusting that collectively we’ll arrive at the best decision.”
Fisher is under contract for 2011 at an estimated $6.5 million. Young is due a $4.25 million roster bonus on the 10th day of the new league year, whenever that starts. His salary for 2011 is $8.5 million.
