Fisher not returning to Eagles

Before Jeff Fisher became head coach of the Houston Oilers back in 1994, he spent a few years in Philadelphia as the defensive-backs coach and then defensive coordinator. Now the team that became the Tennessee Titans has pushed him out after 14 years. The Philadelphia Eagles are coincidentally looking for a new defensive coordinator, which led to a rumor yesterday that Fisher would be re-joining the Birds.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports that there is no truth to it and that Fisher won't be the next defensive coordinator for the Eagles.

The Inquirer notes that the only interview the team has done for the job so far has been New Orleans Saints assistant Dennis Allen, who is now the defensive coordinator with the Denver Broncos. The paper notes that the Eagles are likely waiting to interview candidates from the Green Bay Packers and Pittsburgh Steelers when the Super Bowl ends.
