Carroll to Seattle --> Fisher to USC --> Cowher to Tennessee?

Pete Carroll’s inevitable jump to the NFL will leave college football powerhouse USC without a head coach during crunch time of recruitment season. USC will have to act quickly and assertively to find the right man to steady their ship. ESPN Analyst, Adam Shefter, hinted  via twitter that Tennessee Titans Head Coach, Jeff Fisher, could be that man:

Before USC AD Mike Garrett hired Pete Carroll, he first offered job to Jeff Fisher. In fact, Garrett has made at least two runs at Fisher.
With Garrett still the AD, it’s a wise idea to add Fisher to the list of candidates as Carroll’s successor.

With USC being in a vulnerable position right now, it’s conceivable that they make Fisher an offer he cannot refuse. And Fisher, for his part,may have more than a few reasons to be interested in sunny California.  Jeff Fisher is currently the NFL's longest tenured head caoch, but as of late, it hasn't been all smooth sailing in Tennessee.  Fisher's Titans dropped the first six games of 2009, and although they rebounded to end the season .500, it was still necessary this week for Titans owner Bud Adams to publicly state that Jeff Fisher would remain the team's head coach in 2010.  Further, as Profootballtalk.com points out, "Fisher has grown children and may be looking for new opportunities."

This of course begs the question:  If Fisher decides to uproot to Southern California, who do the Titans target for their newly vacant head coaching position?  One would have to assume that the team would be highly interested in former Steeler head coach, Bill Cowher.  And Cowher, who's only options right now are to become the head coach of the Buffalo Bills in 2010 or sit out until 2011 or later, may have mutual interest. 

On paper, Tennessee has a lot more to offer than Buffalo.  They have a stable ownership, a 2,000-yard rusher, and a young, improving quarterback.  Not to mention that Tennessee is much closer than Buffalo to North Carolina (and the weather much milder).  It may just be that Tennessee in 2010 presents Cowher with a better option than the ones that are presently in front of him.

It goes without saying that if you're one of many Bills fans hoping that the Buffalo Bills head coach in 2010 will be Bill Cowher, recent developments in Seattle may have set off a chain of events that reduces the odds of that becoming a reality. 

Just another great fan opinion shared on the pages of BuffaloRumblings.com.
