Report: Jeff Fisher interviews with Dolphins



Jeff Fisher, believed to be atop the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' wish list for a new head coach, is interviewing with the Miami Dolphins today, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Fisher, the former Tennessee Titans head coach, arrived in a helicopter with Dolphins owner Stephen Ross in Miami today, Schefter reports. The Dolphins seek a replacement for Tony Sparano, who was fired with three games remaining in the regular season.

Fisher coached the Titans and Houston Oilers for 17 seasons, taking the Titans to Super Bowl XXXIV, where they lost to the St. Louis Rams. He also will interview with the Rams in the next week, Schefter reports.

The Bucs relieved Raheem Morris of his head coaching duties Monday, one day after a 45-24 loss to the Atlanta Falcons -- Tampa Bay's 10th straight -- in which the Bucs trailed 42-0 in the first half. Morris had a 17-31 record in three seasons.
