The last I've heard was that they were working on scheduling an interview.

Donít Count on Jeff Fisher to be the Next Coach of the Bucs
AUTHOR: Patrik Nohe

Fisher is not likely to coach the Bucs, though that's not necessarily a bad thing...

Over the past few days perhaps the biggest name on the coaching market has been Jeff Fisher. Fisher is an extremely experienced coach who spent the better part of two decades in Tennessee and Houston coaching the Titans (once Oilers). With Bill Cowher being coy about whether he wants to coach again and Jon Gruden having already been fired in Tampa once, itís Fisher who has been built up into the ideal head coaching candidate.
Unfortunately, or fortunately as Iíll get to, Fisher wonít be coaching next year in Tampa.
Right now, per ESPNís Adam Schefter, Fisher is trying to decide between the St. Louis Rams and the Miami Dolphins, the Bucs are not really even on his radar.
Though that may seem undesirable, Iíll let you in on a little secret, Jeff Fisher is not the coach heís being made out to be. Heís not what the Buccaneers need. Iím not talking about his record or his playoff appearances either, no Iím talking about the fact that the Buccaneers need a coach who is going to come into their young locker-room and put the hammer down. Fisher is not that guy.
Now I know a lot of people want to believe that he is the ideal hire and would take Tampa to a place of legitimacy. They may point out his experience with mobile quarterbacks and working under a GM to support that argument. But the truth is Jeff Fisher has never really been the kind of authoritarian coach that fans the league over are crediting him for being.
A lot of players ran wild during Fisherís tenure as head coach. To name a few, Vince Young more or less put Fisher on the hot seat himself, Adam ďPac ManĒ Jones began his bad behavior in Tennessee, Albert Haynesworth caused all sorts of problems for him before the Titans let him walk in free agency (remember before the holdouts and griping how Haynesworth stomped on Andre Gurodeís head? Yeah several years later that was under controlÖ), not to mention numerous other agitators that were allowed to disrupt the Titansí locker-room.
That is not what the Bucs need. This Buccaneers locker-room has more than a few players who are capable of acting out or embarrassing the team, in his history as a coach Fisher has not been terribly successful in handling those sorts of situations.
What about Fisherís handling of Adam Jones gives Bucs fans confidence he would deal with Aqib Talib any better? Jones left the Titans not after Fisher grew fed up and dismissed him, but after Roger Goodell finally came down on him with a major suspension. Iím not saying Fisher isnít capable of disciplining players, Iím just saying if you look at the situations that he faced over his tenure as a head coach I donít think his body of work really indicates he has been good doing so in the past. Thatís not opinion so much as what weíve seen.
Thatís not good when the Bucs are currently dealing with culture issue in their own locker-room. Right now the Bucs are a selfish team. And the last several years of Fisherís tenure in Tennessee were marred by a team filled with selfish players with individual interests. Based on his last performance, he seems to let selfish players just continue being selfish.
Think about Chris Johnson, Vince Young, Pac-Man and Haynesworth, all superstars whose egos swelled to disruptive, even counter-productive proportions under Fisher.
Maybe heíll be better in his next job, but thatís taking a big chance with a young, headstrong roster like the Buccaneers have.
Ironically one of the first personnel decisions heíll have to make should he become the head coach of the Bucs (which he wonít), would be what to do (once again) with Albert Haynesworth.
The point is that Jeff Fisher is not likely to come coach in Tampa, but thatís not a bad thing either.
He was never the ideal fit.

Good article....may have changed my mind regarding wanting Fisher as our HC....

Damn. That's an awesome article. Definitely eye-opening and makes me think about things a little differently as far as Fisher's concerned.

Mike Sherman never really had any disciplinary problems with his players did he?

Man, that article definitely opened my eyes on Fisher. I still like him and think he would be an awesome hire...just because it means the Glazers are willing to spend money to bring the Bucs back to the glory days. However, this is not a good sign. Also hearing about Billick and how he comes off as an egomaniac...ehh I didn't know about that as well.

Russ Grimm...Mike Zimmer....or Les Miles please.

I'm interested to see what could go down with this new Zimmer hype. I think he'd be out best choice. I'm also not going to count out Gray either he's a sleeper in my opinion.
