LOS ANGELES -- The Los Angeles Rams have relieved Jeff Fisher from head coaching duties, the team announced today.

“Making a decision such as this - especially during the season - is one of the most difficult in sports,” said Rams Owner/Chairman E. Stanley Kroenke. “I have great respect for Jeff as a coach, person, father and friend.

“He has worked tirelessly despite some challenging circumstances. He played an integral role in helping this team make history in returning the NFL to Los Angeles, and we always will be grateful for his commitment and dedication to our organization.

“However, this is the right time to make a change as our performance has not lived up to my or our fans' expectations. We all are focused on improving as an organization and building a team that makes Los Angeles proud. Our mission is to celebrate a Super Bowl title with our fans in Los Angeles. Today is the first step to bringing us closer to that goal.”

Fisher was hired as head coach of the Rams in 2012 and has amassed a record of 31-45-1 in nearly five seasons.

Rams Chief Operating Officer Kevin Demoff will be available to media today at 3 p.m.

The news conference will take place at the Rams practice facility, located on the campus of California Lutheran University (3680 Campus Dr., Thousand Oaks, CA 91360). Please park in open spaces near the rear of the parking lot, and look for the “Media” directional signage to enter the facility.

Demoff will speak to the media at a podium inside the media workroom. There will be a mult box available in the back of the workroom for television and radio outlets that need to gather sound.
