Well, this is unexpected. Tennessee Titans head coach had issues with Vince Young this year, and it was made known to owner Bud Adams that essentially it’s “him or me.” Fisher and Young just couldn’t co-exist together.
Now it looks like they won’t have to. A source tells SI.com‘s Don Banks that Fisher is on his way out in Nashville. At this point, we don’t know if he was fired or if he quit or if the decision to part ways was mutual.
An announcement is expected on Friday.
Fisher was the longest tenured coach in the NFL, as he took over the Houston Oilers back in 1994 (he should have been the Philadelphia Eagles head coach in 1991, but they went with Kotite). In 16 seasons, he compiled a 142-140 record and was 5-6 in the playoffs. In 1999, his Titans lost to the Rams in the Super Bowl.
So now the question is: what happens with Vince Young? Do you still bounce him? Is he allowed to stay now that Fisher is gone? Is Adams just going to blow this whole thing up?
