Fisher told Charlotte Wilder of SI.com that he hasn't accepted a coaching gig in the XFL, however, which he later tweeted himself:
The 61-year-old spent 22 years as an NFL head coach, going 173-165-1 in his career with six postseason appearances and one Super Bowl appearance.
In his five seasons with the Rams, however, he never posted a winning record or made the playoffs, though the organization has made two postseason appearances under Sean McVay since Fisher was fired after the 2016 campaign.
Fisher developed a reputation by the end of his career of fielding average—or worse—teams. His squads finished with a 7-9, 7-8-1 or 8-8 record 10 times.
That was a major talking point after Thursday's reports:
As for the rest of the league, a number of teams have already appointed head coaches:
The XFL is set to return in 2020 after its lone season in 2001. It will introduce a number of unique rules, including the option to go for one-point, two-point or three-point conversions after touchdowns and an overtime session that will include five shots at a two-point conversion for each team, among other changes to the traditional NFL format.
The league will feature eight franchises.
