The couple got married in 1986. Before getting a divorce they had been married for 22 years and during that period they have 3 kids: Brandon Fisher, Trent Fisher and Tara Fisher. Both his son followed in his footsteps as Brandon played linebacker for the University of Montana and currently coaches defensive backs for the Rams and his son Trent was a defensive back at Auburn University.
After 22 years of marriage, the couple separated on February 10, 2008, on the grounds of irreconcilable differences and later the same month their divorced was finalized. The reason for their divorce was said to be inappropriate marital conduct on the part of Jeff.
They were briefly separated in 2004 and had filed for divorce but that time they decided to give their marriage a try and reunited for their children and decided to give their love a second chance.
Jeff was briefly linked with Bud Adams daughter. Bud Adams, is the owner of the football team The Titans that Jeff had coached before. There were rumors that he was dating the owner’s daughter however, it wasn’t confirmed and the rumors disappeared quickly. Besides that, he hasn’t been linked with anyone and is single and is busy with coaching.
But, the other reason we think he hasn’t been linked to anyone is because his ex-wife and he still seem to be in good terms with each other and looks like they still manage to be friends even after the divorce. In 2014 during ESPYS ceremony, Jeff bought his ex-wife as his date and they did look like a couple. It isn’t easy to say goodbye to 22 years of marriage we assume.
