LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Los Angeles Rams have hired Raheem Morris to be their new defensive coordinator. He replaces Brandon Staley, who became the Los Angeles Chargers’ head coach last weekend. Morris finished last season as the Atlanta Falcons’ interim head coach, going 4-7 as Dan Quinn’s temporary replacement. He spent six seasons on Quinn’s staff in a variety of positions, coaching both the offense and the defense before serving as defensive coordinator last season. Morris spent three seasons as Tampa Bay’s head coach from 2009-11. He then spent three seasons as Washington’s defensive backs coach while McVay was an offensive assistant there.
