Titans keep Jeff Fisher for 17th season

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee Titans owner Bud Adams has decided to keep Jeff Fisher for the 2011 season.

In a statement released by the team, the 88-year-old owner says Fisher has meant a great deal to the team and helped the Titans reach "incredible heights" under his leadership.

The decision comes two days after Adams agreed the Titans needed to part with Vince Young five seasons after he ordered the quarterback drafted.

Fisher is the NFL's longest-tenured coach, and Adams' decision means Fisher will be back for a 17th season.
