Jedd Fisch
Senior Offensive Assistant

Biography

Jedd Fisch was hired as senior offensive assistant for the Los Angeles Rams in January 2018. Fisch joins the Rams after a one year stint at UCLA where he was hired as the offensive coordinator in January 2017. He finished the 2017 campaign as the team’s interim head coach leading the Bruins to a 1-1 record in their final two games.

At UCLA, the fast-paced offense flourished under Fisch as the Bruins posted the nation’s fourth-best passing offense and ranked eighth in plays per minute, averaging 2.83 plays per minute of game play. During the 2017 campaign, the Bruins threw for 4,478 yards and averaged 344.5 passing yards per game, both of which are program records. The UCLA offense improved from the 96th overall scoring offense in 2016 to the 36th ranked offense in 2017 with Fisch calling the plays.

In his lone season at UCLA, Fisch was instrumental in the development of QB Josh Rosen, who had his best collegiate season with Fisch calling the plays. Considered a top prospect in the 2018 NFL Draft, Rosen completed 283-of-452 passing attempts (62.6 percent) for a program-record 3,756 yards with 26 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. Against Texas A&M, UCLA found itself down 34 points in the third quarter and completed the largest comeback win in school history, Rosen finished the contest with 491 yards passing and four touchdowns. Rosen threw for over 350 yards passing in six games during the 2017 season, an accomplishment no other Bruin passer has achieved.

Fisch arrived in Westwood, Calif. after spending two seasons as the passing game coordinator and quarterbacks/wide receivers coach at the University of Michigan. Fisch has nearly two decades of coaching experience, working alongside collegiate and NFL head coaches alike, including Steve Spurrier, Dom Capers, Brian Billick, Mike Shanahan, Pete Carroll, Gus Bradley and Jim Harbaugh, among others.
The Michigan offense flourished last season in year two of the Fisch tenure. The Wolverines led the Big Ten in scoring and red zone offense and ranked second in pass efficiency. Record- setting Mackey Award winning tight end Jake Butt earned consensus All-America honors while 10 offensive players earned All-Big Ten honors, including wide receiver Amara Darboh and quarterback Wilton Speight. Wide receiver Jehu Chesson garnered honorable mention Big Ten accolades.

Under his guidance in 2015, Wolverines quarterback Jake Rudock became the second quarterback in school history to pass for 3,000 yards (3,017) and Jake Butt, Jehu Chesson and Amara Darboh became the first trio of receivers in school history to eclipse the 50-reception and 500-yard receiving mark in a season. The offense surpassed 3,000 passing yards for the sixth time in school history, as the 3,090 yards lists fifth all-time at Michigan. U-M threw for over 250 yards in five straight games to finish the season and in six total games.
Before heading to Michigan, Fisch served as the offensive coordinator for the Jacksonville Jaguars. Fisch mentored rookie quarterback Blake Bortles in 2014, helping him to a 58.9 completion percentage and nearly 3,000 yards of passing in 13 starts. Bortles led all NFL QBs with a 7.48 average per rush, and under Fisch’s tutelage, cut down his interceptions to three over the last six games of the season after throwing 14 in his first eight games. Bortles also completed 37 passes of 25-plus yards, second-most among rookie quarterbacks. Fisch developed two rookie receivers in 2014 that did something no one else had done in NFL history: Allen Hurns (51-677, six touchdowns) and Allen Robinson (48-548, two touchdowns) became the first rookie duo in NFL history with at least 48 receptions each.

In his first season with the Jaguars, Fisch guided the offense to improvements in nearly every category from the first eight games to the final eight games, including 31st to eighth in red zone offense and doubling its points per game total.

Fisch spent the two prior seasons (2011-12) at the University of Miami as offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach. In 2012, the Hurricanes scored more than 40 points on six occasions and averaged 31.4 points and 440.2 yards per game. Under Fisch’s direction in 2012, quarterback Stephen Morris threw for a career-high 3,345 passing yards and set a single-season total offense record with 3,415 yards as a first-year starter. In his first season, Fisch tutored quarterback Jacory Harris, who solidified himself as one of the best signal-callers in Miami and ACC history. Harris finished with a single-season school record 65.0 completion percentage while throwing for 20 touchdowns and only nine interceptions. Miami’s offense averaged 26.5 points per game and amassed 4,533 yards of total offense in 2011.

Prior to joining Miami, Fisch served as quarterbacks coach for the Seattle Seahawks in 2010 and worked with three-time Pro Bowler Matt Hasselbeck. Fisch joined the Seahawks after serving the 2009 season as the offensive coordinator/ quarterbacks coach at the University of Minnesota, where he helped the team earn a spot in the Insight Bowl.

In 2008, Fisch was the wide receivers coach at Denver under Mike Shanahan where he tutored Pro Bowl wideout Brandon Marshall to a then career-high 104 receptions for 1,265 yards and six touchdowns. Prior to joining the Broncos, Fisch spent four seasons in Baltimore (2004-07). He was the Ravens’ assistant quarterbacks coach in 2007 after serving as the assistant quarterbacks/wide receivers coach from 2005-06 and offensive assistant in 2004. In 2006, the Ravens posted a 13-3 record and won the AFC North. Steve McNair received Pro Bowl honors after setting a franchise record for completion percentage (64.0).

Fisch began his NFL coaching career with the Houston Texans where he served three seasons (2001-03) as an assistant to head coach Dom Capers. Fisch served two seasons (1999- 2000) as a graduate assistant under Steve Spurrier at the University of Florida while obtaining a master’s degree in sports management. During those two seasons, the Gators advanced to the Citrus (1999) and Sugar (2000) bowls in addition to winning the SEC championship in 2000.

A native of Livingston, N.J., Fisch earned a degree in criminology from Florida in 1998. From 1997-98, Fisch was the defensive coordinator for P.K. Yonge High School in Gainesville, and he then spent one year (1998) with the New Jersey Red Devils of the Arena Football League as a wide receivers/quality control coach.
