Football Coach & Superbowl Champion
Jeff Fisher Bio
Jeff Fisher recently completed his 16th full season as Head Coach of the Tennessee Titans and his 11th as Executive Vice President. Fisher holds the franchise record for wins by a head coach with 141 victories and is the NFL leader in tenure with one team among active coaches. Entering this season, he ranked 20th on the NFL's career head coaching wins list and third among active coaches. Hallmarks of a Fisher-led team include a stout rushing defense, the ability to possess the ball with a strong running game and poise in the midst of adversity. His ability to lead and shape a team is achieved through a combination of toughness and insight as a former NFL player. His teams have made five playoff appearances and one Super Bowl berth in 2000. In 2004, Fisher became the fourth youngest coach (46) to win 90 regular season games since 1960. Originally a seventh-round draft selection of the Chicago Bears in 1981, as a player, Fisher appeared in 49 games as a defensive back and return specialist in five seasons. He earned a Super Bowl ring after Chicago's 1985 Super Bowl season.
Jeff is a native of Southern California and graduated from the University of Southern 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 hosting a celebrity softball game that raises money for local charities, a coach's clinic for youth/high school coaches in the Mid-South and lends his name and time to a golf tournament in Southern California that raises money for youth football. He also gives back to the NFL, serving on the NFL Competition Committee since 2000 and has been co-chairman of the committee since 2001. The committee is instrumental in guiding the league through rule changes and ways to improve the game. In 2001, Fisher was named the winner of the Horrigan Award, given by the Pro Football Writers of America to the NFL representative that is the most cooperative with the media. Additionally, Fisher was named the 2000 Tennessean of the Year by Nashville's Tennessean and 1999 Sports Person of the year by the Nashville Sports Council. Fisher has three children: sons, Brandon and Trent, and daughter Tara.
