FILE - In this Aug. 10, 2011, file photo, former Tennessee Titans head coach Jeff Fisher watch the Detroit Lions practice at NFL football training camp in Allen Park, Mich. A person familiar with the decision says Jeff Fisher has accepted an offer to coach the St. Louis Rams. The person confirmed the agreement to The Associated Press on Friday, Jan. 13, 2012, on condition of anonymity because the hiring hadn't been announced.

ST. LOUIS — Jeff Fisher says he is ready for the challenge in St. Louis.

Fisher was formally introduced as the new coach of the Rams on Tuesday. He also interviewed for the head coaching job at Miami, but went with the rebuilding job in St. Louis.

Fisher says his decision was an easy one because he and the owners share a "collective vision" on how to restore the Rams to what he calls a place of significance.

The Rams went 2-14 last season. Fisher replaces the fired Steve Spagnuolo.
