Titans exercise 2007 option on Fisher's contract

December 31, 2006

NASHVILLE (AP) -- Tennessee Titans owner Bud Adams isn't letting coach Jeff Fisher get away.

Fisher's contract went through this season, but Adams has picked up the 2007 option.

Meanwhile, negotiations continue on a contract extension to keep Fisher around for the long run.

Fisher earned himself a long-term offer with what may be his best coaching effort in 12 full seasons.

The Titans won nine combined games in the last two seasons, rebuilding from a salary cap disaster. The current offense led by rookie quarterback Vince Young features six starters in their first or second season. Still, they wound up going 8-8 in 2006.

That included a stunning six-game winning streak with come-from-behind wins over the New York Giants, Indianapolis and Houston.

The record matches Fisher's fifth best. The franchise went 8-8 in 1996, 1997 and 1998.
