St. Louis Rams head coach Jeff Fisher is not interested in replacing Steve Sarkisian as head coach at Southern Cal, according to Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post Dispatch:

Fisher, who is in his fourth season as head coach in St. Louis, played defensive back for the Trojans in the late 1970s. He has been mentioned as a contender in the last three USC searches, despite never having coached in the college ranks.

Even though he may not be taking over at Southern Cal, Fisher could end up coaching in the LA Coliseum should the Rams move to St. Louis.

Other NFL coaches, such as Philadelphia's Chip Kelly and Seattle's Pete Carroll, have been connected with the Southern Cal opening in recent weeks. The Trojans are looking to replace Steve Sarkisian, who was fired last week.
