The Atlanta Falcons hired Raheem Morris as their head coach on Thursday, leaving the Rams without a defensive coordinator on Sean McVay’s staff. One potential replacement for Morris is Brandon Staley, who was the Rams’ defensive coordinator in 2020 before being hired as the Chargers’ head coach.
According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, Staley has drawn interest from the Rams already as a possible defensive coordinator candidate. Staley is also meeting with the Packers and Dolphins about their defensive coordinator positions, so he has a few suitors around the NFL.
A reunion in Los Angeles would make sense, allowing Staley to remain on the West Coast and return to the team that he helped finish with the No. 1 defense in the league in 2020.
