The Vikings are meeting with Rams defensive coordinator Raheem Morris tonight for their head coaching vacancy, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Morris joined the Rams this season.

Morris closed out last season as the interim head coach for the Falcons and went 17-31 over three seasons as the Buccaneers head coach. He was fired after the 2011 season and spent time coaching in Washington before moving on to Atlanta and Los Angeles.

He began his NFL coaching career in 2002 with the Bucs.

Eagles defensive coordinator Jonathan Gannon on Thursday became the fourth candidate to interview for the head coaching job to replace Mike Zimmer.

The Vikings have narrowed their General Manager search to Kwesi Adofo-Mensah and Ryan Poles, both of whom will have second interviews next week.

  1. To be fair to Morris, when he was HC of Bucs, he was to young, immature, and tried to be one of the guys with the players..
    His greatest mistake was drafting a qb in the 1st round from a college he worked with in the past that turn out to be a colossal blunder… (Freeman; who was quickly out of the NFL)…

  2. PLEASE don’t hire Raheem Morris! He was a terrible head coach! That would basically be like bringing back Lezlie Frazier for a 2nd stint.

  3. Raheem Morris knows what it’s like to get fired after a couple of seasons, so he’s a perfect fit for Minnesota.

  4. Funny how Vikes are still looking after everyone coming in to the building is turning them down. Can’t say I blame them as they’d be coaching against the 13-time (soon to be 14 time) world champs twice a year.
