Both parties had agreed to the deal prior to the season and only became official before the Rams' game against the Patriots on Sunday, according to ESPN.
That was the highlight for Dickerson, who reiterated that he hasn't changed his opinion about the Rams' underachieving ways under Fisher.
In the aftermath of the news that Fisher has a two-year extension, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the deal indeed has been in place for "weeks".
Rams COO Kevin Demoff said this week Fisher was being judged through the lens of the adverse conditions he's been forced to wade through this season, when he moved the Rams from St. Louis, the second time he's overseen a franchise's reboot in a new city. I think we got some things resolved.
Demoff has clearly gotten himself caught in the middle of a battle he just can not win. Demoff has been attempting to smooth things over with Dickerson since he first came out and said he was told he was not welcome on team sidelines.

The dollar was again moving higher on the yen to reach 112.18, after profit-taking pulled it down as far as 111.58. US crude last rose 2.1 percent to $47.04 a barrel and Brent traded at $48.22, up 2.1 percent on the day.
Speaking with NFL Network's Steve Wyche recently, Rams chief operating officer Kevin Demoff was mum on an extension, but defended his coach's performance this season.
If the Rams play well, Fisher will keep his job; if they don't, he'll get fired but make more money because of this extension.
He is 173-163-1 in his career. If Fisher returns as coach next season, how much more mediocrity can Los Angeles handle from their newest professional sports franchise? Fisher is in his fifth season with the Rams and has won seven games in three of his seasons and went 6-10 in the other.
Fisher is in the sixth and final year of his original contract with the team and has never had a single winning season over that span. The L.A. Rams play the New England Patriots on December 4 at 10 a.m. PST.
