Cincinnati Bengals

Fisher was drafted by the Cincinnati Bengals in the second round (33rd overall) in the 1999 NFL Draft. As a rookie in 1999, Fisher was considered the Bengals future at cornerback[2] winning one of two starting cornerback spots after Corey Sawyer was released.[1][3] However, on week one of the 1999 NFL season about 12 plays into the game[4], Fisher tore all three major ligaments in his knee the MCL, ACL and PCL in his knee and missed the rest of the season.[3] The injury occurred when Fisher was trying to cover Tennessee Titans wide receiver Kevin Dyson.[3] His injury left the Bengals thin at cornerback having to start Artrell Hawkins and fellow rookie Rodney Heath.[3] Following the injury many media members claimed that Fisher's career was over.[5] The injury would prove to never allow him to regain full health and he never played another game in the NFL. He was released by the Bengals in 2001.[1]

Coaching career

Following his release from the Bengals, Fisher was hired as a coaching intern in the player personnel department for the Green Bay Packers.[1] On June 16, 2003, Fisher was hired by the Seattle Seahawks as a scout.[1] Fisher was present at the Mountaineers 2008 pro day, and was impressed by former Mountaineers running back Steve Slaton and safety Ryan Mundy.[6]
