The fired head coach-and-four on Monday, a day after their ninth loss of the season.

The Rams struggled after their return to Los Angeles, where they played from 1946 -1 994 before shipping off to St. Louis. Going 4-9 and firing the head coach-and-four mid-season probably isn’t what Los Angeles were hoping for when the team moved back.

It’s particularly bizarre, considering Fisher signed a contract extension last week.

But get this Sunday’s loss to the Falcons marked the 165 th of Fisher’s coaching career, tying him for the most career loss by an NFL coach-and-four. So firing him makes a lot of sense.

“He has worked tireless despite some challenging circumstances, ” the Rams said in a statement. “He played an integral role in helping this squad construct history in returning the NFL to Los Angeles, and we always will be grateful for his commitment and dedication to our organization.”

Despite the 165 loss, fans are pointing to another win-loss statistic.

HBO‘s Hard Knocks documented the Rams’ training camp this summer and captured Fisher telling his squad that he wouldn’t settle for a 7-9 record.

It rapidly became a running gag among football fans.

Well, Fisher’s last loss with the Rams set them at 4-9 on the season with you guessed it three games left. So naturally, fans jumped on the opportunity to bring up the 7-9 speech.

But that doesn’t entail the Rams won’t.
