Raheem Morris Named Los Angeles Rams Defensive Coordinator
January 21Grant WhiteSportsGrid
One of the hottest names in Defensive Coordinator searches is off the market. Ian Rapoport tweeted that Raheem Morris is set to join the Los Angeles Rams as their new Defensive Coordinator.
Morris started the season as Defensive Coordinator for the Atlanta Falcons, before being promoted to interim Head Coach when Dan Quinn was sent packing. Morris guided the Falcons to a 4-7 record as Head Coach, which substantially improved the 0-5 record that he inherited.
The Rams set the low-mark in total defence, passing yards and points allowed this past season but had to replace departing Defensive Coordinator Brandon Staley who was hired as Head Coach of the Los Angeles Chargers. Morris is walking into a good situation that will only help him grow his reputation.
