ST. LOUIS — Jeff Fisher is interviewing for the St. Louis Rams coaching job after previously meeting with the Dolphins.
The Rams said that initial interviews are taking place in Denver, with owner and Columbia resident Stan Kroenke an active participant. Kroenke's family also owns the Denver Nuggets and Colorado Avalanche.
Kevin Demoff, the Rams chief operating officer, said earlier this week that Kroenke would be "heavily involved" in the search and added that the decision is "his call."
Unlike Steve Spagnuolo, who was fired Monday after going 10-38 over three seasons and was 2-14 this season, Fisher offers the Rams plenty of head coaching experience. He has a career record of 142-120 and led the Titans to at least 12 wins four times.
Spagnuolo came to the Rams after success as defensive coordinator with the New York Giants.
Fisher's Titans lost to the Rams in the 2000 Super Bowl. Tennessee had the top AFC seed in 2008 with a 13-3 record but has not won a playoff game since 2004.
The Rams also are looking for a new general manager to replace Billy Devaney and have received permission to speak to Titans vice president of operations Lake Dawson and vice president of player personnel Ruston Webster about the opening.
Meanwhile, NFL.com and ESPN's Adam Schefter are reporting that the Kansas City Chiefs plan to retain Romeo Crennel as their full-time coach. Crennel went 2-1 in his three games as the Chiefs' interim coach after Todd Haley was fired on Dec. 12.
