Fisher’s future in Tennessee is cloudy

Taken from Yahoo Sports

"ESPN’s Chris Mortensen floated a very interesting note this week: Titans owner Bud Adams could have potentially breached coach Jeff Fisher’s contract by forcing Young back into the starting lineup. If Adams did indeed breach Fisher’s deal, it could potentially be used as a tool to help Fisher escape his contract, if he felt compelled to do so.

There are a few things that are interesting about that revelation. First, it’s interesting that such information would come to light right now, in the midst of a five-game winning streak for the Titans. Make no mistake, contract information is strategically leaked for a specific purpose. Secondly, it’s another eyebrow raiser about Fisher, on top of the Peyton Manning(notes) jersey fiasco earlier this season, which also happened to take place after Adams made it known he wanted Young to start again.

Ultimately, you have to wonder if Fisher wants to stay in Tennessee. Maybe Fisher wants a change or a new contract. Maybe he’s finally chafing under Adams. Or maybe he’s not entirely on the same wavelength as Young. It’s a well-known fact that Young was Adams’ choice, and that some members of the coaching staff favored Matt Leinart(notes), taken seven picks later at No. 10 by the Cardinals, in that draft. And clearly Young has done some things that have rubbed Fisher the wrong way in the past.

Maybe I’m just being a conspiracy theorist, but Fisher is a very smart, calculated person. He knows what he’s doing. That’s why the incident with the Manning jersey surprised me, not to mention the fact that he was hardly contrite afterward, even when it clearly irked some of his players. Now this latest tidbit about a potential contact breach surfaces, and it seems more than mere coincidence. Regardless of how Tennessee finishes the season, something deeper appears to be in the works, and I think we’ll find out what it is as the postseason approaches."

 

Interesting situation. Herein lies the question. If Fisher works his way out of Tennessee & Kubiak gets the boot, would you think Fisher would be open to a return to Houston & would you want him as the Head Coach of the Texans?
