Jeff Fisher Knew Rams Were Moving To Los Angeles In 2012 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Tue Dec 27, 2016 4:08 pm

Jeff Fisher admitted to knowing Stan Kroenke planned on moving the Rams to Los Angeles when he took over as coach in 2012.

Throughout his tenure while still in St. Louis, Fisher repeatedly played dumb about Kroenke's plans.

"I was very fortunate to have some options," said Fisher, referencing his return to coaching in 2012. "I decided on L.A., or St. Louis, at the time, knowing that there was going to be a pending move. More importantly, I took the job because of Stan, and because we had a quarterback in Sam Bradford. That's how you win in this league, with a good owner and a quarterback. So, Stan gave me the opportunity. To answer your question, I'm disappointed. But I didn't win enough games. I get that part."

Fisher was asked multiple questions about overseeing the Oilers move from Houston to Tennessee during his interview with the Rams.
