NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Titans late Monday afternoon had yet to make a decision on the future of head coach Jeff Fisher, one day after ending their season with a loss in Indianapolis, their eighth in the last nine games.

Titans' owner Bud Adams isn't happy with the team's dismal finish after starting 5-2 and has said he planned to evaluate Fisher, the longest tenured coach in the NFL, after the season.

In a statement released Monday afternoon, Adams said Fisher's history with the team, the NFL's labor situation and "other challenges" must be considered in the evaluation process.

In a press conference at Baptist Sports Park moments later, Fisher called the process a "complicated" one and one with a "great deal of uncertainty."

At first glance, Fisher said they have to address the quarterback situation, the defense and penalties against the team, specifically on defense.

He said such issues are addressed through a variety of ways, including through scheme and personnel.

Fisher confirmed Titans Senior Executive Vice President Steve Underwood and Titans Executive Vice President and General Manager Mike Reinfeldt traveled to Houston on Monday to meet with Adams but said it wasn't a situation where a decision would be made "first thing on Monday morning."

Fisher said he feels his job is safe, and maintained, as he has all along, that he wants to finish his career in Tennessee.

Fisher said he knows everyone is curious, adding that Adams and the Titans will do what's in the best interest of the organization.    

Fisher is under contract for 2011 at an estimated $6.5 million.

Adams said he planned to make his decisions in the near future.

With Sunday's loss, the Titans (6-10) finished last in the AFC South and walk away with the eighth pick in the upcoming draft.
