Titans' Fisher heading to Persian Gulf

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee Titans coach Jeff Fisher says he expects to get an appreciation of military life when he's part of the inaugural NFL-USO Coaches Tour.

He'll make a weeklong trip soon to the Persian Gulf with Giants coach Tom Coughlin, former Steelers coach Bill Cowher, Ravens coach John Harbaugh and former Raiders and Buccaneers coach Jon Gruden.

"It is an opportunity for me to go over there and get a perspective of what all those servicemen and women are doing to protect our country," Fisher told The Tennessean newspaper.

For security reasons, he said he's not allowed to discuss specifics of the trip.

"To me, it's a privilege to go," Fisher said.
