Raheem Morris Hired By Washington Redskins As Defensive Backs Coach

The Washington Redskins reportedly offered former Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Raheem Morris a job on their staff. The Redskins have in fact done so, according to a report by Rick Stroud of the St. Petersburg Times.

According to Stroud, Raheem Morris will coach the Redskins defensive backs. The hiring comes on the heels of a Redskins assistant coaches Steve Jackson and Keenan McCardell being informed they would not be back with the team, according to a report by Mike Jones of the Washington Post. Jackson has been the Redskins safeties coach while McCardell had coached the wide receivers the past two years.

Jackson, Washington's longtime safeties coach, and McCardell, the Redskins' wide receivers coach the past two seasons under Shanahan, were informed Monday they would not be offered new contracts. Jackson and McCardell, the sources said, were not among several assistants who received contract extensions at the beginning of the season.

Apparently, Shanahan intends to bring back the majority of the group that has an 11-21 record during his two seasons leading the organization.
