Obviously, this is breaking news and I don’t have much information right now but Jeff Fisher is done in Tennesee. One would think this has everything to do with his feelings for Vince Young and the ongoing rift between the two men.
As for Fisher, he will reportedly receive $8 million as part of his settlement to walk away from the Titans after 16 full seasons — the majority of what was due in the final year of his contract. Fisher was to receive $5.6 million in salary for 2011 with a $4 million bonus. The move is expected to be announced as a mutual parting of ways.
days after Tennessee finished 6-10 — the Titans’ worst record since 2005 — Adams announced he would retain Fisher for a 17th season and that Young’s days as a Titan were over.
Now, it would not be surprising to see Adams move to retain Young as quickly as possible.
