Mired in another losing season and being mixed up in an off-field snit with former Rams great Eric Dickerson did not prevent management in Los Angeles from handing head coach Jeff Fisher a contract extension.
The deal was agreed to in the preseason and signed during the season, according NFL Network's Ian Rapoport and confirmed by ESPN on Sunday morning.
The contract includes a team option for the Rams, who still could part ways with Fisher after the season and owe him only one year of salary. Rams general manager Les Snead also signed an extension beyond 2017, according to the reports.
Fisher, who entered the season in the final year of his deal, helped with the transition as the team moved from St. Louis to Los Angeles during the offseason.
In his first four seasons with the Rams, the 58-year-old Fisher led the team to records of 7-8-1, 7-9, 6-10, and 7-9. The Rams currently sit at 4-8, giving Fisher an overall record 31-44-1 in his four-plus seasons with the Rams.
