Rams hire former UCLA coordinator Jedd Fisch as senior offensive assistant
The Rams added to their deep group of offensive coaches Wednesday when they hired former UCLA offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch as a senior offensive assistant.
The Rams did not immediately define Fisch’s role, but presumably he will work closely with quarterback Jared Goff. Greg Olson, the Rams’ previous quarterbacks coach, left this month to become Oakland’s offensive coordinator and was replaced by young coach Zac Taylor.
Fisch, 41, has extensive experience working with quarterbacks, and became available after Chip Kelly took over as UCLA’s new head coach in November. Fisch spent last season as the Bruins’ coordinator and worked with quarterback Josh Rosen, who is expected to be selected high in the first round of this year’s NFL draft.
Fisch’s NFL resume includes stops at Denver (receivers coach in 2008), Minnesota (offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach in 2009), Seattle (quarterbacks coach in 2010) and Jacksonville (offensive coordinator in 2013-14).
At the college level, Fisch worked under Steve Spurrier at Florida and under Jim Harbaugh at Michigan, where he coached quarterbacks in 2015-16. Fisch also was UCLA’s interim coach for their Cactus Bowl loss to Kansas State last December, after the Bruins fired Jim Mora.
