Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Falcons’ interim HC Raheem Morris is interviewing Friday for the team’s full-time head coach job.
Morris was widely expected to interview for the vacancy, so this shouldn’t come as a big surprise.
Some of the other candidates linked to the Falcons’ job include:
- Chiefs OC Eric Bieniemy
- Titans OC Arthur Smith
- Bills OC Brian Daboll
- Packers OC Nathaniel Hackett
Morris, 44, began coaching at Hofstra as a graduate assistant back in 1998. He later took his first NFL coaching job with the Buccaneers as their defensive quality control coach and managed to work his way up to head coach in 2009.
The Buccaneers fired Morris after three seasons. He spent a few years with the Redskins before the Falcons hired him as their assistant head coach/DBs coach in 2015.
As the Buccaneers head coach, Morris led the team to a record of 17-31 (35.4 percent) over the course of three seasons. Since taking over the Falcons, Morris has led them to a 4-6 record.
