4. Jeff Fisher
If this were a list ranking Titans coaches over the last two decades, it would have been Jeff Fisher in first and it wouldn’t even be close.
The impact of Jeff Fisher on the Tennessee Titans as a whole can’t be summarized in a 200-word slide. Making the playoffs at all is a remarkable achievement for this franchise. Making the Super Bowl is something else altogether.
However, Fisher only coached one season for the Titans in this decade, and Fisher’s 2010 season was filled with drama and underachieving.
The Titans finished last in the AFC South in Fisher’s final year with the team, finishing 6-10 overall, going 2-4 against the division, and now infamously clashing with the Titans promising fifth-year quarterback Vince Young.
Fisher and the Titans did the best they could with the hand they were given, one that included a revolving door at quarterback that included Kerry Colins and Rusty Smith, in addition to Young. Statistically speaking, it wasn’t a terrible year for Tennessee. The team finished 17th in points for and 15th in points against, but it wasn’t enough for Fisher to come back.
After clashing with Young, and reportedly the Titans’ front office, Tennessee and Fisher “mutually parted ways” and ended the 16-year tenure of Fisher.
