Former Titans coach Fisher spotted at Bucs team hotel in Atlanta - serendipity?

Tampa Bay coach Raheem Morris already is on the ropes after nine straight losses and now this: former Titans coach Jeff Fisher was spotted at the Buccaneers team hotel in Atlanta Saturday.

Fisher is believed to top the Bucs' wish list should they decide to dismiss Morris after today's season finale against the Atlanta Falcons in the Georgia Dome. Call it a coincidence of convenience. It turns out Fisher's son, Trent, is a walk-on safety for Auburn, which defeated Virginia in the Chick-fil-A Bowl Saturday night. 

It wouldn't be hard for the Bucs' to anticipate Fisher's whereabouts. With former Steelers coach Bill Cowher all but ruling out a return to the sidelines in 2012, Fisher is considered the prime candidate for nearly every anticipated head coaching vacancy, including San Diego, Jacksonville, Kansas City and Miami.

If the Bucs have any designs on hiring Fisher, his arrival in Atlanta to watch his son play in the Chick-fil-A Bowl would not be a surprise.
