The Los Angeles Rams have reportedly agreed to contract extensions for head coach Jeff Fisher and general manager Les Snead. Details aren’t clear for Snead’s extension, however, Fisher’s extension is worth approximately $9 million a year for 2-years with a 1-year void option after the first year, according to NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
The extensions have been speculated since the start of the season, but recently had come into question due to the Rams’ poor performance this season. COO Kevin Demoff dropped a hint recently stating that it was unfair to judge Fisher on the Rams’ 4-7 record in a recent press conference. Fisher himself stated that he was not worried about his job security. This makes sense since the contracts have been done weeks ago.
Fisher joined the Rams back in 2012 and has a record 31-43-1. If Fisher doesn’t improve in 2017, the Rams have the option to terminate his contract. In other words, Fisher is still on the hot seat but still has time to prove himself. It appears Hall of Fame running back Eric Dickerson won’t be back at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum for a while.
