Raheem Morris Hired As Washington Redskins Defensive Backs Coach

Raheem Morris is gainfully employed once again, even if this may only be a temporary move. Morris was hired as the Washington Redskins defensive backs coach on Wednesday, but he holds an important out. According to head coach Mike Shanahan, Morris will be allowed to leave the Redskins with no penalty, should he accept a defensive coordinator job elsewhere.

The news comes from Rick Stroud:

For Morris, it's quite the fall. After being considered an up-and-comer following a better than expected 2010 season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Morris was fired at the end of the 2011 campaign. The Bucs regressed swiftly following that 10-win season, finish 2011 at 4-12 and on a 10-game losing streak to close out the season.

Washington gives Morris a chance to get back on his feet, perhaps waiting out a position higher on the coaching ladder while staying in the league.
