There has been speculation about whether former Rams/Titans coach Jeff Fisher will return to NFL coaching. But sources tell Michael McCarthy of the Sporting News that Fisher's immediate future lies not on the sideline, but in the broadcast booth.

Fox Sports is talking to Fisher about serving as one of its NFL game analysts this season, sources said.

Fisher has said he wants another NFL coaching job. But Fox has the money to pay for a big name as its devotes major resources to "Thursday Night Football" and its Sunday afternoon game of the week, the most-watched program in all of TV. According to SportsBusiness Daily, Fox will pay the NFL around $550 million per year through 2022 to broadcast "Thursday Night Football."

Fox could slide a big name like Fisher into its No. 2 analyst role behind Troy Aikman. The network also could use Fisher on either of its two NFL Sunday pregame shows.
