According to ESPN’s Dan Graziano, the Indianapolis Colts have requested a second round in-person interview with Los Angeles Rams defensive coordinator Raheem Morris—among other reported finalists:
Bad weather in Indianapolis is messing with some of the scheduling for the Colts' in-person second interviews. Saturday's may end up being delayed. Others who have been requested for second interviews include Broncos DC Ejiro Evero and Rams RC Raheem Morris, per sources. https://t.co/PukUTAgtze— Dan Graziano (@DanGrazianoESPN) January 25, 2023
The 46 year old Super Bowl winning defensive coordinator’s first round interview reportedly went ‘very well’ with the Colts, so it’s no surprise he’s receiving a second opportunity.
With a number of injuries and a stalled offense, Morris’s Rams defense ranked 18th in team defensive DVOA this past season, but is just a year removed from being a Top 5 unit.
It’s been speculated that Morris could build a very talented and experienced coaching staff to surround him, which also makes him a very attractive head coaching candidate.
He also has prior head coaching experience from his time with both the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2009-11) and Atlanta Falcons (2020)—in addition to his other defensive coaching positions.
Morris remains a key name to watch during the Colts ongoing interview process.
