Panthers complete virtual interview with Rams DC Raheem Morris

Head-coaching interview No. 6 is now wrapped up.

The Carolina Panthers announced on Wednesday that they have completed their virtual interview with Los Angeles Rams defensive coordinator Raheem Morris. The 47-year-old is now the sixth candidate to chat with the organization about the head coach job—joining Chris Tabor, Ejiro Evero, Todd Monken, Mike Macdonald and Frank Smith.

Morris, save for a year as the defensive coordinator at Kansas State University, has been on the NFL sidelines for the past two decades. He got his start in 2002 with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers—where he rose up the ranks from a defensive quality control coach all the way to their head coach in 2009.

Tampa Bay went 17-31 under Morris over three seasons. His best campaign came in 2010, where he led the Bucs to a 10-6 mark.

Morris, who was fired following the 2012 season, landed in Washington as a defensive backs coach for three years. He’d move on to Atlanta, where he’d get an 11-game interim head-coaching run to close out 2020.

He has spent the last three seasons heading the Rams defense.
