Jeff Fisher held his closing press conference with reporters Friday in Nashville, a day after he and the Titans agreed to go their separate ways and end his 16-year-plus run as the team's head coach.

Fisher told reporters multiple times that he was "not going into specifics" on why he's leaving the team but added that he trusts the organization will rebound and be a successful one again soon. The coach had a 142-120 record in 16 full seasons as head coach, as well as six games to finish the 1994 season. Tennessee won four division titles in his time in charge, with a 5-6 mark in the playoffs. Fisher led the Titans to one Super Bowl — when it lost 23-16 to the Rams in Super Bowl XXXIV, following the 1999 season.

"It was just time to move on," Fisher said. "I needed a break. There were some differences (between the coach and Titans owner Bud Adams). This is what's best for everybody."

Adams told PFW correspondent and The Tennessean reporter Jim Wyatt, "Unfortunately, organizations and coaches reach a point where it is time for change. This isn't personal."
