Fisher has spent eight seasons on Jim Larrañaga's staff in Miami, with the past six of those as assistant coach and the team's offensive coordinator.
Fisher graduated from Penn State in 2006. While there, he worked for three seasons as head student manager and then one season as a graduate manager. He was brought back to Happy Valley in 2011 by Pat Chambers, serving as a video coordinator before being promoted to Director of Player Development in 2012. He had previously spent time as part of Chambers' coaching staff at Boston University.
One of the key highlights of Fisher's resume is his ties to Philadelphia, including time spent on Jay Wright's staff at Villanova as assistant recruiting coordinator.
He was instrumental in Miami's signing of current San Antonio Spurs guard Lonnie Walker IV, who was a consensus five-star prospect and the No. 14 ranked player in the 2017 recruiting class.
Fisher and the Hurricanes’ coaching staff reeled in top-15 recruiting class in back-to-back seasons in 2016-17 and 2017-18, marking the best classes in program history.
