Vince Young Trashes His Former Coach Jeff Fisher, Says He Is ‘Going To Expose His Ass’
Now some might say that NFL coach Jeff Fisher got “exposed” the past couple of years with the job he did coaching the Rams. The fact that he was fired a week after getting a contract extension was pretty much the height of comedy for the Rams in their first year back in Los Angeles.
That being said, one of Fisher’s former players, Vince Young, who worked under Fisher for several years in Tennessee until he was released in 2010, says he is going to expose Fisher. Or more specifically, “expose his ass.”
In a new interview with Sports Illustrated, Young delved into the relationship he had with his former coach despite saying that he was saving the best stuff for his book…
Young went 8–5 as a rookie starter and galloped 39 yards into the end zone in Houston, sticking it to the Texans in overtime that December. But his relationship with Fisher began to deteriorate during the following off-season, when Chow was fired. A decade later the quarterback tries to sidestep questions about his old coach, saying, “I don’t want to get into it” and “I’m saving that for my book.”
But Young can’t help himself. He may believe he’s moved on from what transpired in Tennessee, but broach the subject, and he appears angry, conflicted. “I’m going to expose his ass,” he says of Fisher, who he claims stripped all the fun from football, pushing Young until he broke. Whereas Brown had been the father figure Young always wanted, Fisher, he says, acted like someone saddled with an unwanted stepson. Family members, close friends, even Young’s pastor describe Fisher as “jealous” and “envious” of the QB.
Hard to believe, right?
