Titans' Fisher not worried about job security

Titans coach Jeff Fisher, whose job security has been called into question with the Titans' current six-game losing streak, said he is not concerned about his job security.

Fisher, who has been the coach of the franchise since the final six games of the 1994 season, has come under fire lately because the Titans have lost six straight games for the second straight year, and has lost at least five games consecutively in five of the past seven seasons.

“It's never been a concern of mine. I don't come to work being concerned about that. I come to work to get a day's work in and try to get a team ready to win games. It's not a concern, and it will not be a concern,” Fisher said. “I'm under contract, and I've said numerous times I hope to finish my career here.”

Fisher said he has spoken to owner Bud Adams about the matter, and said the owner is not happy about the situation but understands the problems with injuries and the Vince Young saga at quarterback – at least injury wise. Adams has spoken in a report a few weeks back that he wants both coach and quarterback to co-exist since both are under contract for 2011.

“He clearly understands what happened this season, particularly the instability at the quarterback position, injuries up front on the defensive line,” Fisher said. “He understands what happened. He doesn't like it, like we don't like it. He's not happy with it, or are we. But we move on and you get yourself prepared to try and win the next game.”
