Jeff Fisher Officially Announced As St. Louis Rams Head Coach

The St. Louis Rams introduced their new head coach in a press conference on Tuesday. Long-time Tennessee Titans head coach Jeff Fisher joined Rams owner Stan Kroenke behind the microphone as the two discussed the hiring and the future of the St. Louis franchise.

"My goal is to bring this franchise back to relevance," Fisher said in the press conference simultaneously broadcast online and on the NFL Network. Fisher also said he looks forward to bringing "disciplined, tough, physical football" to St. Louis.

On what attracted Fisher to the Rams, he said he was looking for "a good owner" and "a quarterback," adding: "It's going to be a great ride." Concerning the long term future of the Rams in St. Louis, Fisher said he felt the franchise would stay in St. Louis, but Kroenke appeared less committed, only saying: "We'll see how the process works out."
