Jason La Canfora botches Jeff Fisher report with CBS TV future unclear


How much football this season is in store for Jeff Fisher — and the person reporting on Jeff Fisher — is unclear at the moment.

Fisher tried to set the record straight Thursday: He’s not getting back into coaching, in the XFL, as Jason La Canfora had reported.

The former Titans and Rams coach tweeted at La Canfora, accusing him of “fake news,” and suggesting he get better sources after the CBS Sports reporter was “hearing” the 61-year-old Fisher was going to coach the Houston franchise in the new league.

“Hearing Jeff Fisher is in line to coach Houston of the XFL,” La Confora had tweeted.

But is La Confora in line to return to his current job? Sources have told The Post’s Andrew Marchand that there are questions if La Canfora will return to “The NFL Today,” CBS’s Sunday pregame show, this fall. CBS hasn’t ruled it out, and there have been talks between La Canfora’s agent and CBS, but sources say CBS has been looking around at other candidates, as well.

Fisher last coached in 2016 with the Rams, going 4-9, before getting fired.
