Can Ex-NFL head coach Jeff Fisher Save the Arena Football League

Ex-NFL head coach Jeff Fisher becomes interim commissioner of Arena Football League

The Arena Football League is in dire straits. The league is in its third life, and its second incarnation ended in bankruptcy in 2019. Now, the league is seeking a replacement commissioner, and they've turned to a familiar face: Jeff Fisher, former head coach of the Los Angeles Rams and Tennessee Titans. He's a well-known name and a successful coach, so it makes sense that the league would look to him to revive its fortunes. But it's a long shot. The league has been struggling for years, and it's not clear that even Fisher can turn things around.

The recent decision follows the closure of four teams during the first season of the league's revival, indicating potential challenges for its future. Currently, there are 12 teams still operating.

Jeff Fisher coached the Titans for 17 seasons, from 1994 to 2010, achieving a record of 142-120 and leading the team to its only Super Bowl appearance, where they lost to the St. Louis Rams.

Afterward, Fisher took over the Rams in 2012 and spent five seasons with them, overseeing their relocation to Los Angeles. However, he didn't achieve the same level of success, ending with a record of 31-45-1.

Fisher's most recent coaching role was with the USFL's Michigan Panthers in 2022, where he also served as the general manager.
