The Los Angeles Rams have fired Jeff Fisher.

The Rams announced on Twitter today that they have fired head coach Jeff Fisher.

"The Los Angeles Rams have relieved Jeff Fisher from head coaching duties," the Rams tweeted.

The franchise then released the following statement:

“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, 58, was 31-45-1 in nearly five seasons as the Rams' head coach.

The Rams are set to speak with the media later today.
