Fred Taylor wants Jags to hire Jeff Fisher
When Fred Taylor played for the Jacksonville Jaguars, Jeff Fisher once remarked that what was then called Alltell Stadium was the Tennessee Titans fifth home stadium in their relocation process from Houston to Nashville.
Now, with the Jaguars looking for a new head coach after the firing of Jack Del Rio, Taylor tells the Florida Times-Union that the ex-Titans coach should make Jacksonville his new home.</p>
"He’s going to be super motivated to go and kick Tennessee’s ***** each time they play," Taylor said. "He’s a good coach. I think they throw out the whole rivalry thing and look at the standpoint of this guy’s been successful. It’s only twice a year he has to play his old team."
Fisher left the Titans organization after the 2010 season after 17 years as head coach and is expected to be on a number of short lists for the coaching vacancies that arise this off-season.
