    Jeff Fisher fired as coach of Los Angeles Rams

    LOS ANGELES — The Rams fired embattled coach Jeff Fisher on Monday, one day after the team lost for the eighth time in nine games.

    The Rams announced the decision in a press release but did not mention anything about general manager Les Snead, who, like Fisher, signed a contract extension through 2018 before the start of this season. The team later announced that special-teams coordinator John Fassel has been named interim coach. The son of longtime NFL coach Jim Fassel has been with the team for five years.

    Rams COO Kevin Demoff said the decision to fire Jeff Fisher was “solely a performance issue.” Demoff also said, “It’s unfortunate for him because this is an organizational failure.”

    Demoff would not guarantee that GM Les Snead will be back next season. He said everybody is under scrutiny for the rest of this season and the search for a new coach would begin immediately.

    2. To have a team move back to L.A. and win a Super Bowl would

    be spectacular. It’s bound to happen.

    The city deserves something spectacular for the sake of pride.

    4. I like Jeff Fisher

    but I always thought he was too conservative (coaching wise, lol). At some point you have to take some chances and open things up a little and he always seemed hesitant to go that extra step.
