4. Best coaching hire for the Las Vegas Raiders: Raheem Morris, DC, Los Angeles Rams
Right now, the Raiders are in the playoffs. They fought their way through controversy to make the playoffs. David Carr proved he was a leader and face of the franchise. The Raiders need a coach with experience on both sides of the ball—that’s Raheem Morris.
Morris is known for his defense and currently coaches the Rams defense under Sean McVay. He’s shown early how well he adjusts and adapts to the roster handed to him. Morris was known for a 4-3 scheme, but that’s not the case with the Rams. He disguises his defenses by running different looks in his zone-heavy 3-4 scheme.
If you want to know what he does, look no further than Jalen Ramsey, who, according to, PFF had his best season since 2017. Meanwhile, Aaron Donald took home PFF’s defensive player of the year.
The former Buccaneers head coach also served as the Flacons passing game coordinator from 2015-2019. Morris has the versatility and experience to help take the Raiders to the next level. The Raiders and Morris are a match made in football heaven.
