According to Sporting News, Jeff Fisher might have found his next gig. No, it’s not another head coaching job. He’s reportedly in talks with Fox to become an analyst.
The report mentions both live analysis and studio work as Fisher’s two possibilities with the network.

Keep in mind that Fox now has the rights to Thursday Night Football, beginning this year.
Fisher — now 60 years old — has said that he wants to coach again, but that opportunity has yet to present itself. Considering Fisher’s near .500 career record (173-165-1) and the way things deteriorated with the Rams just two seasons ago, that third opportunity isn’t likely to come.
Fisher led the Titans through one of the most successful eras in franchise history, coming up just short of a Super Bowl win in the 1999 season. He finished with a 142-120 career mark as Tennessee’s head coach. The Titans parted ways with Fisher after the 2010 season, promoting Mike Munchak to head coach.
