On Monday, just a week after public revealing he had a contract extension in place, Jeff Fisher was fired as the coach of the Los Angeles Rams following another listless performance, this time a 42-14 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. The loss resulted in Fisher tying the NFL record for most losses as an NFL coach with 165; he went 31-45-1 as the coach of the Rams since 2012.

So who will be the next coach of the Los Angeles Rams? Here are some options.

Jim Harbaugh

Getting Harbaugh to leave his post as the head coach his rising alma mater, the Michigan Wolverines, would be a Hail Mary, but one the Rams would be smart to attempt.

Harbaugh is eccentric, but he knows how to fire up his troops, something Fisher never seemed to care to do. Harbaugh's tenure in San Francisco left a poor taste in his mouth, so coming back to the NFL in Los Angeles could be a challenge he'd like to face.

Jim Bob Cooter

Outside of having the best name in all of Football, Cooter has emerged as one of the best assistant coaches in the NFL as the offensive coordinator of the Detroit Lions. He has helped Matthew Stafford revitalize his career while shaking off injuries in the run game and the retirement of receiver Calvin Johnson. The Los Angeles Rams need an offensive mind to lead their team next, and Cooter could be the right coach for the job.

Kyle Shanahan

Another strong offensive coach would be Kyle Shanahan, current offensive coordinator of the NFL's most potent passing attack in Atlanta. He has helped make Julio Jones the best receiver in the NFL and revived a quarterback many thought was declining in Matt Ryan, a legitimate MVP candidate this year.

He could do the same in Los Angeles for the Rams with Jared Goff and the undermanned receiver unit.

Josh McDaniels

Another coach like Harbaugh who had massive hype surrounding his first gig, but failed to live up to it. That being said, he didn't have a lot of weapons at his disposal as the head coach of the Denver Broncos.

That will still be the case with the Los Angeles Rams, but it must eat at the New England Patriots offensive coordinator that his success is tied to Bill Belichick and Tom Brady.
