On Monday, the Los Angeles Rams fired head coach Jeff Fisher, with owner Stan Kroenke saying it's the "right time to make a change, as our performance has not lived up to my or our fans' expectations."

With three games left in the season, the Rams are 4-9, after suffering a 42-14 loss Sunday to the Atlanta Falcons. Kroenke said the decision was difficult, as he has "great respect for Jeff as a coach, person, father, and friend," and Fisher played an "integral role in helping this team make history in returning the NFL to Los Angeles."
