Commanders request to interview Raheem Morris for head coaching job

The regular season just ended on Sunday but Raheem Morris is already drawing head coaching interest. According to Adam Schefter, the Washington Commanders have requested to interview Morris for their head coaching vacancy.

They fired Ron Rivera as their head coach on Monday, ending his four-year tenure in Washington.

Morris has been the Rams’ defensive coordinator for the last three years, helping lead them to a Super Bowl win following the 2021 season. He was a finalist for the Colts’ head coaching job last year and received a second interview with Indianapolis, but the Colts went with Shane Steichen instead. The Broncos also interviewed Morris a year ago before hiring Sean Payton.

Morris has head coaching experience, holding that title for three years in Tampa Bay from 2009-2011. He was also the Falcons’ interim head coach in 2020 before the Rams hired him in 2021.

Morris also spent three years in Washington as the secondary coach from 2012-2014 where he was on the same staff as Sean McVay, Mike McDaniel and Kyle Shanahan.
