Jeff Fisher is done with his initial meetings with the Dolphins and St. Louis Rams and he will decide between the two next week, according to ESPN.
Fisher apparently said idependently or told the network he won't decide between the two teams until next week, which suggests he'll take the weekend to think things through. He also said the decision is, as has been reported here, between Miami and St. Louis exclusively.
Both teams are hopeful of landing Fisher.
Simple: Both know he can do the job. Fisher has been a successful NFL head coach.
But both teams are continuing with their coach search. The Dolphins today are hosting Green Bay Packers offensive coordinator Joe Philbin. The Rams are similarly continuing with their interview process. But everyone both teams are interviewing that is not named Fisher pretty much comes with this warning:
None have any NFL head coach experience. So in that regard, the teams are hoping these candidates can be head coaches.
See the difference?
Fisher is known to be able to do the job. The other candidates, the teams hope they can do the job.
