He began his coaching career with the Brumbies in 2000 when he was appointed head coach of the Brumbies Rugby Academy and later assumed control of the Brumby Runners and the Canberra Vikings. He implemented a rugby program aimed at developing the cream of local ACT rugby talent into players capable of competing for training contracts or full contracts with the Brumbies squad. Guy Shepherdson, Matt Giteau and Julian Salvi all made successful transitions to the professional game under his guidance.
In 2003, Laurie was promoted to the Brumbies forwards coach under David Nucifora and contributed to their success as 2004 Super 12 Champions.
Fisher's contribution and devotion to the Brumbies as an assistant coach saw them earn success from 2000 as semi finalists, two time finalists and two time champions. As a head coach, Laurie failed to guide the Brumbies to any finals appearances. Midway through the 2008 season the Brumbies announced they would not be renewing his contract as head coach. Laurie was named forwards coach for Munster Rugby on 8 July 2008, with his experience in the Experimental Law Variations (ELVs) cited as a key reason for his appointment
Working full-time in sports, Fisher's career began as a physical education and health science teacher at Telopea Park School. After a decade of teaching, he moved into a Program Manager role at the Australian Institute of Sport.
In February 2011 Munster Rugby announced that Laurie Fisher will end his association with the Irish Province at the close of the current season. During his time at the Irish Provence, Munster have won the Magners League title, contested two Heineken and one Magners League semi final, currently lead the Magners League by nine points and continue their European campaign with an Amlin Challenge quarter final in April.
On 2 July 2014, Laurie Fisher would leave the Brumbies to join English team Gloucester Rugby as their new head coach. On 7 March 2017 Fisher left Glouchester by mutual consent following a poor run of results. He will return to the Brumbies in 2018 once again.
