Sean McVay calls it a ‘crime’ Raheem Morris is not a head coach

In an interview on Tuesday, Rams Coach Sean McVay expressed his deep disappointment that one of his team’s coaches has yet to be hired for an NFL head coaching position.

Raheem Morris, the team’s defensive coordinator, will stay in Los Angeles this season and while McVay is happy to have him back, it just doesn’t make sense to him.

“It reflects how far we have to go because he’s one of the best coaches in the world, and not being a head coach is a crime,” McVay told The Associated Press’ Greg Beacham. .

The Rams defense featured stars like Jalen Ramsey, Aaron Donald and Von Miller last season, which ended with a Super Bowl victory over the Bengals. During the season, Morris’ defense ranked No. 17 in total yards allowed and No. 18 in total points allowed.

However, during the playoffs, Los Angeles never allowed an opponent to score more than 27 points. The Rams held teams to 18.75 points per game en route to the Lombardi Trophy.

Morris, 45, got his first head coaching job in 2011 with the Buccaneers but was let go after the 2011 season. He went 17–31 during his time there, including a 10–6 campaign in 2010. He served as the Falcons’ interim coach in 2020 and was hired by the Rams in 2021.

Los Angeles will be looking to revive it this year, and if all goes well for McVay and company, Morris will be out the door and given a chance to run another franchise.
