Jeff Fisher, Team Glazer Have Not Met

January 1st, 2012

This morning there was a breathless report that former Titans head coach Jeff Fisher was spotted at the Bucs team hotel in Atlanta.

In an effort to connect the dots, some believed Team Glazer was finalizing plans to bring Fisher to the Tampa Bay area to replace embattled coach Raheem Morris.

Part of the reason Fisher was spotted was because he was in Atlanta to watch his son play in last night’s Chicken Bowl between Auburn and Virginia.

For Bucs fans who have broken open the champagne bottles thinking Fisher is the new Bucs coach, hold up!

Popcorn-munching, coffee-slurping, fried chicken-eating, oatmeal-loving, beer-chugging Peter King has thrown cold water on these rumors, via Twitter.

@SI_PeterKing: Jeff Fisher sighting at Bucs hotel in Atlanta? Pure coincidence. No meeting with Bucs. There only to see Auburn DB son Trent in Peach Bowl.

So Bucs fans can calm down. For now. Morris is still the Bucs head coach. For now. For a few days at least, so Joe believes.

    LOL Not sure how Peter King squashing a false rumor makes the guy an “asshole?” If anything, it’s a good thing.

  4. canadianbuc Says:

    Joe it just seems that this guy has nothing good to say about the bucs at the start of the season and last season.

  5. flmike Says:

    If no one called Peter King to spread the rumor it can’t be true.

    That’s patently false. Did you not read Joe’s interview with King just before the season?

    But let’s say King actually had nothing but bad things to say about the Bucs, for argument sake. He would have been right then, correct?

    Sans Davin Joseph, there is nothing good to write or say about the Bucs right now to be bluntly honest.

    Hah! No Fisher!

    I REALLY don’t want him here. If he did come here, I would be supportive, but unless that happens, I am not.

  8. Rickster Says:

    Once fisher finds out what a stir he caused for just being at the team hotel in Atl he’ll surly jack his price up!

  9. Paul Says:

    He’s not an a-hole for trying to squash a rumor, just one for not citing a reference. We know that Peter King has no insider information on what the Bucs want to do.

    I love the way Joe insults King while posting from his scoop.
