Per Rick Stroud, former Tampa Bay Buccaneers' head coach Raheem Morris was hired as the Washington Redskins' defensive backs coach today. That's a step down for the former head coach, who was also connected to the Minnesota Vikings' defensive coordinator position and the Pittsburgh Steelers, among others.
Raheem Morris was the Bucs' head coach for three seasons before being fired after ten consecutive losses, many of which were blowout losses. Morris went 17-31 with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and never made it to the playoffs. Despite lackluster results as the head coach in Tampa, Morris has plenty of time to work his way back into an eventual head coaching job as he's just 35 years old.
In Washington he'll work under head coach Mike Shanahan and defensive coordinator Jim Haslett. He will also be reunited with general manager Bruce Allen, who was the Bucs' general manager when Raheem Morris was an assistant in Tampa.
Eventually Raheem Morris will probably get another shot as a head coach. For now, he'll have to work his way back up the coaching ladder.
