The Rams have fired long-time head coach Jeff Fisher just a few months after handing him a two-year contract extension. Just last week, Fisher confirmed he signed that deal before the start of the 2016 season, the NFL reports.

Special teams coordinator John Fassel, the son of former Giants head coach Jim Fassel, has been named the team’s interim head coach.

“This was solely based on performance,” said Kevin Demoff, Rams executive vice president of football operations, during a news conference Monday. “Today was the best chance to move forward and finish the season with some direction and hope. It’s unfortunate for him today because this is an organizational failure … this is just not about the head coach and coaching staff. We have to improve across the board.”

Demoff went on to say that the Rams losing eight of its last nine games ultimately “tipped” the decision to get rid of Fisher. In addition, when asked if general manager Les Snead could be in jeopardy, Demoff said “it would be a mistake to say anybody in the building would be back next year.”

“Making a decision such as this – especially during the season – is one of the most difficult in sports,” said Rams Owner/Chairman E. Stanley Kroenke. “I have great respect for Jeff as a coach, person, father and friend.

“He has worked tirelessly despite some challenging circumstances. He played an integral role in helping this team make history in returning the NFL to Los Angeles, and we always will be grateful for his commitment and dedication to our organization.

“However, this is the right time to make a change as our performance has not lived up to my or our fans’ expectations. We all are focused on improving as an organization and building a team that makes Los Angeles proud. Our mission is to celebrate a Super Bowl title with our fans in Los Angeles. Today is the first step to bringing us closer to that goal.”

Fisher was hired as head coach of the Rams in 2012 and has amassed a record of 31-45-1 in nearly five seasons.

The Rams sucked this year.

Good move. Fisher is no Mike Ditka. He’s more like Mr. Rogers.
