2006 USC News

Jeff Fisher was born on February 25, 1958 in Culver City, California. Played at Southern California (1977-1980) for John Robinson in a star-studded defensive backfield that included Ronnie Lott, Dennis Smith, and Joey Browner. Member of the USC team that won the national championship in 1978. Also served as the Trojans’ backup placekicker and was a Pac-10 All-Academic selection in 1980. He is the head coach of the Tennessee Titans of the National Football League. As of 2005, Fisher has the second-longest tenure as head coach with any one team, only behind Pittsburgh's Bill Cowher. He is also one of the winningest active head coaches in the League, with a 101-85-0 (.543) record.

A native of Southern California, Fisher was a high school All-America wide receiver for the Toreadors of Taft High School in Woodland Hills, California. Fisher is an avid fisherman and golfer. He also does considerable work off the field with little accolade. He generously donates time and money to a number of different charities, including the hosting of a celebrity softball game that raises money for local charities, a coach’s clinic for youth/high school coaches in the Mid-South and lending his name and time to a golf tournament in Southern California that raises money for youth football.

Drafted by the Chicago Bears in 1981, Fisher spent five years in the Windy City as a cornerback and kick returner. In the 1985 season, his playing career was ended due to a broken leg he sustained on a kickoff return, inflicted by later NFL head coach Bill Cowher. Not content to be idle, the injured Fisher began to assist Bears defensive coordinator Buddy Ryan, and the Bears went on to win the Super Bowl that season. He also recorded the longest punt return by a Bear in 39 years with an 88-yard return for a TD on Sept. 20, 1981, against Tampa Bay.

A former defensive back in college at the University of Southern California, Jeff Fisher played for John Robinson in a star-studded defensive backfield that included future NFL stars Ronnie Lott, Dennis Smith and Joey Browner. Current Titans offensive lineman Bruce Matthews also was one of Fisher's USC teammates. Fisher's career statistics included five interceptions and 108 tackles. The versatile Fisher also served as the Trojans' backup kicker and earned PAC-10 All-Academic honors in 1980.

Jeff Fisher is entering his 11th season as head coach of the Tennessee Titans and his sixth as Executive Vice President. Fisher holds the franchise record for wins by a head coach with 98 victories and has amassed more regular season wins than any AFC head coach over the last six seasons with 61. He ranks third overall in the NFL behind Tony Dungy (64 wins, 30 in the NFC) and Andy Reid (63 wins).

Officially he began his coaching career as an assistant for Ryan and the Philadelphia Eagles in 1986, tutoring the defensive backs for three seasons before becoming the NFL’s youngest defensive coordinator in 1988. One year later, under Fisher’s tutelage, the Eagles’ defense led the NFL in interceptions (30) and quarterback sacks (62). In 1990, Philadelphia’s defense paced the league in rushing defense and ranked second in QB sacks.

In 1991, Fisher headed west to be reunited with his college coach John Robinson, serving as the Los Angeles Rams’ defensive coordinator before joining the 49ers one year later.

He originally joined the Oilers’ coaching staff on Feb. 9, 1994, after spending two seasons as the defensive backs coach for the San Francisco 49ers. Fisher was a perfect fit for the Oilers, who were looking for a young, aggressive coach with experience in the "46" defense. Fisher had worked with the "46" for many years with former Oilers Defensive Coordinator Buddy Ryan. Fisher took over a defense that achieved dominant status in 1993, but had lost several key components to free agency. He was elevated to head coach on Nov. 14, 1994, replacing Jack Pardee, for the final six games of the season.

On Jan. 5,1995 he became the franchise’s 15th head coach, after closing his first campaign with the Oilers as head coach/defensive coordinator. He replaced Jack Pardee on Nov. 14, 1994, coaching the remaining six games as head coach.

Fisher holds the franchise mark for wins with 98 over his 10-year coaching career and ranks third among NFL head coaches (Dungy and Reid) with 61 victories since 1999. Last year he became the fourth youngest coach (46) since 1960 to reach 90 regular-season victories (John Madden, Don Shula, and Bill Cowher).

Jeff Fisher believes in the philosophy that a strong running game helps control the clock and keeps your defense fresh. In eight of the last nine seasons, the Titans have finished in the top half of the NFL in rushing offense including four top 10 finishes. The maturation of QB Steve McNair also has given Fisher the ability to employ a more diverse offense, leading the Titans to score the second highest point total (435) in franchise history in 2003 and to become just the third franchise since 1970 to score 30 or more points in six consecutive games and a creer recordof 98-77.
