Jeff Fisher Reportedly Offered $8 Million, Executive VP Title By Miami Dolphins

Jeff Fisher appears to be down to the St. Louis Rams and Miami Dolphins as he mulls his head coaching options for next year. Until now, the Rams seemed to hold an edge, though concern the team may move to Los Angeles reportedly had Fisher spooked. On Wednesday, however, word leaked that the Miami Dolphins made Fisher a substantial offer -- one that would net him a jaw-dropping dollar figure per year.

According to National Football Post, Fisher has been offered the title of Executive Vice President, giving him the final word on personnel decisions, and a salary of at least $8 million per year.

Fisher, according to what sources indicate to NFP, could be in line to make upwards of $8 million a year on a contract for five years from Dolphins owner Stephen Ross. There have been reports that while Fisher was previously leaning toward the Rams, the possibilility of the team going back to Los Angeles is something he wants no part of, having been coach of the Houston Oilers during their transition to becoming the Tennessee Titans.

If true, it's tough to see Fisher turning down such a lucrative contract, though he seems to have other requirements that need to be met, including stability and a solid foundation of players, before he accepts a position. For now, the Dolphins and Rams wait as Fisher figures out what's next.
