The Washington Times Daily - - SPORTS -

LOS AN­GE­LES | Jeff Fisher’s tenure in Los An­ge­les didn’t last one full sea­son.

The Rams fired their coach on Mon­day. Spe­cial teams co­or­di­na­tor John Fas­sel will serve as in­terim coach.

Fisher was the team’s coach since 2012, and com­piled a 31-45-1 record with the Rams. He over­saw the move from St. Louis to Los An­ge­les this past off­sea­son.

The lack of suc­cess on the field, capped by a 42-14 home rout at the hands of At­lanta on Sun­day, spelled the end for Fisher.

Los An­ge­les is 4-9 this sea­son and has scored a league-low 194 points. The Rams are at Seat­tle on Thursday night.

Fisher, 58, went 147-126 as coach of the Hous­ton Oil­ers/Ten­nessee Ti­tans and helped that fran­chise in its re­lo­ca­tion. He led the Ti­tans to the 1999 AFC cham­pi­onship.
