Jeff Fisher Net Worth $20 million
Fisher attended Taft High School in Woodland Hills, Los Angeles, where he became a skilled All-American wide receiver for the school’s football team. He then enrolled at the University of Southern California in 1977, joining its team, the Trojans, winning a national championship in his sophomore year and earning a Pac-10 All-Academic selection as a senior at USC.
In 1981 he was selected in the seventh round as the 177th pick by the Chicago Bears in the NFL Draft – his wealth began to rise. He went on to spent five seasons with the team, being a defensive back and return specialist. In 1983 he suffered a leg injury, which put him on the injured reserve list for the rest of his time with the team. The Bears went on to win the Super Bowl in 1985, however, Fisher’s injury ended his playing career, so he coached rather than played. His tenure with the Bears greatly contributed to his net worth.
Later in 1985 he became a defensive backs coach for the Philadelphia Eagles, being promoted to their defensive coordinator three years later. His wealth grew larger.
In 1991 Fisher became defensive coordinator for the Los Angeles Rams, then from 1992 to 1993 he served as defensive backs coach for the San Francisco 49ers. His early coaching career enabled him to achieve a great reputation in the world of football, greatly adding to his net worth.
In 1994 he became a defensive coordinator for the Houston Oilers; later that year he replaced Jack Pardee in the head coaching position, going on to lead the Oilers to a 7–9 record in 1995, taking second place in the division. In 1997 the team was relocated to Tennessee, and was renamed the Tennessee Titans in 1999. The same year they made it to the Super Bowl, the first one in the team’s history, being defeated by the St. Louis Rams. The following year they lost to the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC playoffs. After a disappointing 2001 season, the team improved in 2002, participating in the AFC Championship Game. In 2003 they made it to the playoffs again – although defeated by the New England Patriots, their performance was quite impressive. The following three seasons were less successful for Fisher’s team, but things improved in 2007 and 2008, reaching the AFC playoffs in both seasons. In early 2011 Fisher left his position of Titans’ head coach – his 17 seasons with the team marked the longest-tenured head coach position in the NFL, enabling him to enjoy great popularity and to amass a sizable fortune.
In 2012 he became the head coach of the St. Louis Rams, whose record was an improving 7-8-1 in Fisher’s first season as their coach. In his second season, the team had a 7-9 record, followed by a 6-10 in 2014. After four consecutive losing seasons, with season 2014 being the worst one in Fisher’s career, he led the Rams to an improving 7-9 record in 2015, and the following year he signed a two-year contract extension through 2018, however, he was fired only a few days later. Still, Fisher’s five seasons with the Rams significantly increased his net worth.
Aside from coaching, he also served as a co-chair of the NFL competition committee until 2016, which was another source of his wealth.
Speaking about his private life, Fisher was married to Juli Fisher from 1986 to 2008. They have three children together.
