Cardinals to face new Rams defense in 2024 as Raheem Morris hired as Falcons HC

The Arizona Cardinals will face a new Los Angeles Rams defense in 2024. The Atlanta Falcons have hired Rams defensive coordinator Raheem Morris to be their new head coach.

Morris used to be an assistant for the Falcons and coached both offense and defense at different times.

He was the Rams’ defensive coordinator for the last three seasons.

The Rams will receive draft compensation for the hiring. Morris is a Black man and, like the San Francisco 49ers with their last two defensive coordinators, will get an extra compensatory third-round pick the next two years because a minority coach on their staff was hired by another team to be head coach.
