According to the Tennessean and SportsTicker, Tennessee Titans head coach Jeff Fisher and the team have agreed in principle to a four-year extension, which will keep Fisher in Nashville until the 2011 season.

Sources familiar with the negotiations, the Tennessean also reports that Fisher will receive an average salary range between $5.5 and $6 million per season; the Titans exercised an option on Fisher’s contract at the end of last season.
