Jeff Fisher had never had the question asked of him publicly until Jim Miller and Pat Kirwan posed it during Tuesday’s edition of Movie’ The Chains.

Has the former NFL coach received any feelers to become a television-network game analyst? “Yes, I have,” Fisher responded.

‘Could you imagine me sitting down in a production meeting on Friday in Seattle with Pete Carroll and then on Saturday with Bruce Arians?’

Then he proceeded to explain why he wasn’t interested.

“Let me give you the example,” Fisher, who was fired as coach of the Los Angeles Rams during the 2016 season, said. “My first year off is last year. Could you imagine me sitting down in a production meeting on Friday in Seattle with Pete Carroll and then on Saturday with Bruce Arians? Probably not going to get a lot of information out of them. I just wasn’t comfortable with that.

‘I’ve had opportunities to stay in it, but I don’t see myself coming back and coordinating’

“If the Lord has that opportunity ahead of me, then I’ll do that once I’ve eliminated all the possibilities to get back on the sidelines.”

Such possibilities have also surfaced, according to Fisher. However, he has yet to receive the right one.

‘Getting out for a year or two, I don’t think that should, by any teams, eliminate somebody’

“I’ve had opportunities to stay in it, but I don’t see myself coming back and coordinating,” he said. “As we all know, success in the National Football League is built on a number of different things. And it starts with the quarterback and you’ve got to stay healthy and you’ve got to hit things running and you’ve got to have a good staff, all those things. So getting out for a year or two, I don’t think that should, by any teams, eliminate somebody.”
