Known for possessing the fire of Buddy Ryan and coolness of John Robinson, Jeff Fisher will spend his first months as an NFL head coach needing yet another borrowed attribute. The patience of a saint. Fisher, former Ram assistant coach and USC defensive back, was named head coach of the Houston Oilers on Monday, a day after an Oiler loss to the Cincinnati Bengals gave Houston pro football's worst record, 1-9.

Jack Pardee, an All-Pro NFL linebacker whose career with the Los Angeles Rams was interrupted in the mid-1960s when he battled malignant melanoma before returning to the field and becoming a well-traveled coach, has died. He was 76. Pardee, who was found to have gallbladder cancer in November, died Monday in Denver, said David Bassity, a spokesman for the University of Houston, where Pardee coached in the 1980s. After 13 seasons with the Rams, Pardee finished his playing career with the Washington Redskins and then began his coaching odyssey.

For Jack Pardee to be coaching the run-and-shoot offense seems totally out of character. When Pardee was hired by the Chargers in 1981 as assistant head coach in charge of defense, newspapers ran such headlines as "Mr. Defense," "Secretary of Defense," "Pardee to the Rescue" and "Pardee Puts Touch of Picasso Into Chargers' Defense." Pardee, who played linebacker in the NFL, was so heavily into defense that it almost seemed as though taking possession of the ball was offensive to him.

Only the faces are different for the Oilers. And the offense. But not the result. David Treadwell kicked a 37-yard field goal with two seconds to play Monday night to help the New York Giants snap a seven-game losing streak with a 13-10 victory over Houston, which lost for the seventh consecutive time. It was the third time in a row and sixth time this season that the Oilers have lost by three points. The previous times, Jack Pardee was their coach.

Bud Adams, the owner of the Houston Oilers, dismissed as "ridiculous speculation" reports that Coach Jack Pardee will be fired in the wake of a 1-3 start. In a brief statement, Adams gave his coach a vote of confidence one day after his team lost, 28-13, to the Rams. The latest loss prompted outraged fans to jam phone lines at sports talk shows, many demanding Pardee's ouster. The Oilers' flagship radio station, KTRH, reported that two phone lines were knocked out by the volume of calls.

Jack Pardee will coach the Houston Oilers again next year, owner Bud Adams said Saturday. During a season in which they have had to cope with the death of a teammate, the Oilers overcame a 1-4 start to win their second AFC Central title in three years. Houston has won 10 consecutive games, including last Sunday's victory over Pittsburgh less than a week after the suicide of lineman Jeff Alm. "I don't see any reason to make a change," Adams told the Houston Chronicle.

Jack Pardee, coach at the University of Houston, was hired as coach of the Houston Oilers Tuesday.
