Two weeks ago after a 59-0 fiasco against the New England Patriots, Tennessee Titans owner Bud Adams said he would evaluate Coach Jeff Fisher’s job status as the end of the season.
Strong words from the 86-year-old owner who had seen his team fall to 0-6.
But after Sunday’s rebound 30-13 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars, Adams had seemingly softened his stance on the league’s longest-tenured coach, who still has two more years to run on his current contract after this season.
“He’s under contract here for several years. We just don’t let guys go earlier than their contracts [when it comes to] coaches,” Adams said of Fisher.
