The former UCLA interim head coach and offensive coordinator, Fisch has spent the past couple seasons in the NFL as an assistant. Most recently, he was with the New England Patriots this past season as their quarterbacks coach.
Arizona is coming off an 0-5 season in what was the third year under head coach Kevin Sumlin.

He has ties around college football but in particular, the Big Ten. In 2009, Fisch was the offensive coordinator at Minnesota and spent two seasons beginning in 2015 with Michigan as their quarterbacks and wide receiver coach.

His return to the college ranks is no surprise as last year, Fisch was linked to the open Rutgers job that was filled by the return of Greg Schiano.
In 2017, he was head coach of UCLA after Jim Mora was fired. He guided the team to a win in the regular season finale against Cal before losing in the Cactus Bowl to Kansas State.
