Jaguars potential HC target No. 2 – Raheem Morris
If the Jaguars were interested in a defensive-minded head coach, Raheem Morris is their man. He’s currently the Los Angeles Rams defensive coordinator but has head coaching experience.
Back in the late 2000s, Morris joined the Tamba Bay Buccaneers as a secondary coach. He was promoted to defensive coordinator in December 2008 after Monte Kiffin resigned to join his son’s staff at Tennesse. Early in 2009, the Bucs gave Jon Gruden the boot and Morris got his job.
His tenure in Tampa wasn’t particularly great, amassing a 17-31 record in a span of 48 games. He was dismissed after the conclusion of the 2011 seasons and went on to join the Washington Football Team’s coaching staff. His stint there lasted three years and was hired as an assistant head coach/defensive backs by the Atlanta Falcons in 2015. He once away worked his way up and became their interim head coach in 2020 when the Falcons fired Dan Quinn.
Morris kept Atlanta afloat and managed to go 4-7. He’s experienced the ups and downs of the NFL and is battle-tested. He is the kind of head coach a team like the Jaguars needs if they want to win games.
