Jeff Fisher out at Tennessee Titans

Jeff Fisher and the Tennessee Titans have parted ways, There was some question about whether the longest tenured coach in the NFL was fired or is just leaving or what. But for our purposes here, he's gone. Brings a smile to my face. Here's the story as it broke via SI.

While the tweets are flying fast and furious, there is no early lead on how this affects Vince Young but it certainly does change the equation in Tennessee.

Fisher took over as interim head coach for the Houston Oilers when Jack Pardee left and then was named the head coach the next year, 1995. His overall record ended as 142-120, with a 5-6 playoff record. Three of those five wins came when the Titans reached the Super Bowl in 1999, in which they fell just a yard short of victory.

A new era is truly beginning in 2011.

Kudos to silky51 for catching this in the FanPosts.

From Titaninsider:

The Tennessee Titans and Jeff Fisher have agreed to part ways and Fisher will no longer be the head coach of the team," the team said in a release.

A head coaching search will begin immediately, but a source indicated to TitanInsider that offensive line coach Mike Munchak, who signed his contract extension earlier this week, is the leading candidate to fill the vacancy.
