Jim Schwartz Adds Jeff Fisher's Son to Lions Staff

New, comments

We all know that Jeff Fisher wanting his son, Brandon, on the staff with the Titans was one of the reasons that Fisher and the club ultimately decided to part ways. Well today the Detroit Lions have announced that they have hired Brandon Fisher as an assistant to the defensive coaching staff.

I have tried to stay away from most of the Jeff Fisher stories this offseason because he isn't the coach of the Titans anymore, so I really couldn't care less what he is doing, but I thought this one was worth noting because it was one of the issues that led to Fisher's departure. It is not surprising that Schwartzy would be the one to give Brandon a chance because of his relationship with Jeff.

As Titans fans we should always be thankful to Brandon Fisher because without him the Titans probably don't draft Marc Mariani in the 2010 NFL Draft.
