Falcons near hiring Rams DC Raheem Morris as head coach

Bill Belichick apparently will not be relocating from New England to Atlanta.

Reports Thursday indicated the Falcons plan on hiring LA Rams defensive coordinator Raheem Morris as their head coach.

Morris has a history with the Falcons. He was with the team in various roles from 2015-20.

In 2020, he was named the team’s interim head coach after Dan Quinn was fired. He went 4-7 in that role.

Since 2021, Morris has been with the Rams as their DC.

Morris spent three years with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from 2009-11 as their head coach. He was 3-13 in his first season, 10-6 in his second, and then 4-12 in 2011.
