Could Fisher Be in the Mix for the USC Job? reports that Jeff Fisher may have some interest in the recently opened USC job, that is when it becomes official that Pete Carroll takes the job with the Seahawks:

Tennessee Titans owner Bud Adams said this week that Jeff Fisher would remain the team’s head coach. But now that Pete Carroll appears set to vacate the job at Fisher’s alma mater, USC, things could be changing.

We noted when Adams said Fisher would stay that Adams might actually be hoping someone comes along and offers to take Fisher away without Adams having to pay off the remainder of Fisher’s contract. Could the Trojans be that “someone”?

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that USC athletic director Mike Garrett tried to hire Fisher before he hired Carroll in 2001, and that Garrett could turn to Fisher again now.

Schefter also reports that Adams might be receptive to letting Fisher go.

Fisher’s children are grown, and he may be looking for new opportunities. The USC opening may be the right opportunity to make the league’s longest-tenured head coach head elsewhere.
