NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Tennessee Titans and coach Jeff Fisher have agreed on a contract extension that will keep Fisher though 2011, according to a source familiar with the negotiations.
Titans' owner Bud Adams picked up a one-year option after last season, when the Titans rallied from an 0-5 start to complete an 8-8 season.
A team official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the formal announcement had been planned for Monday afternoon, confirmed to The Associated Press the agreement will add four years to Fisher's contract.
The deal is thought to be worth $5.5 million to $6 million per year, according to a report in Monday's Tennessean. Fisher is the longest-tenured coach with his team in the NFL and is in his 13th full season.
He coached his 200th regular-season game Sunday in a 22-20 loss to Indianapolis.
