Report: Jeff Fisher to remain involved on competition committee

Need a good sign Jeff Fisher plans to be back on an NFL sideline in 2012?

The longtime Tennessee Titans coach, who split from the club in late January, will remain on the prestigious NFL Competition Committee as a consultant.

“I wanted to have an opportunity to stay involved,'' Fisher told Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean. “I am very close with all the members on the committee and the support staff. You can imagine the time we've spent together over the years, it's almost been like a second job. To be able to continue to participate, it is exciting to me.''

The competition committee is the group that suggests rule changes for the game and for a long period Fisher co-chaired it with Atlanta Falcons president Rich McKay. Fisher will be a non-voting member of the committee, but he’s obviously influential and respected in the room.
