Raheem Morris interviewed to be head coach of the Jaguars. He might take defensive coordinator as a consolation prize.

Morris is a candidate for Jaguars defensive coordinator and will meet with Jaguars head coach Urban Meyer this week, Josina Anderson reports.

After finishing the 2020 season as the Falcons’ interim head coach, Morris interviewed to get that job on a permanent basis, but Arthur Smith was chosen instead. Morris also interviewed for the Jaguars’ head-coaching job.

Morris was the Buccaneers’ head coach for three seasons and has had several stints as a defensive assistant.

  1. Morris will have multiple D-Coordinator offers, if he doesn’t get a head coaching job. Urban Meyer is wise to try to keep him. The team will have a new QB, and will be learning a new offense. That’s going to be tough enough already.

  2. Morris wouldn’t be a bad choice but would he want to go to Jacksonville which has almost zero talent on defense. I’d bet you’d be hard pressed to identify one Jags player who would start for any other NFL team. Morris might be better off sitting out a year instead of taking a job with the Jags. It’s gonna be ugly. Yeah, I know they have a bunch of cap space and a bunch of draft picks but when was the last time the Jags haven’t made a mess of the draft. Most of their first-rounders were busts and/or are no longer with the team. This is also the team that drafted a punter in the 2nd round. The Jags gonna be the Jags.
