Report: Redskins meeting with Raheem Morris
Raheem Morris could be resurfacing quickly.
The ex-head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is reportedly in the mix to join the Washington Redskins, who are looking for someone to clean up their secondary. George Wallace of WTOP radio in Washington reported Morris was spotted in the area dining with Redskins brass, leading one to believe he was in town for an interview.
It’s possible the Redskins could look to add Morris as their defensive backs coach and coach Mike Shanahan could also give him the title of assistant head coach. Morris and Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan have a relationship together from their days on the same staff in Tampa.
The Redskins could be a prime landing spot for Morris. They pay very well in comparison to the remainder of the league and if Morris has some success he could be in line for promotion to a defensive coordinator position or he could work his way back into being a head-coaching candidate again. That could take some time though.
