The LA Rams are searching to fill a number of coaching positions. But at the same time, the team is aware that several key members of their coaching staff, particularly defensive coordinator Raheem Morris, have been in consideration for promotion with other NFL teams. Morris, in particular, is a candidate to be hired as a head coach this off-season. The two teams he has been interviewing with so far are the Denver Broncos and the Indianapolis Colts.
Until today. Reports are now surfacing that a number of leading candidates for the Denver Broncos, including Rams DC Raheem Morris and Broncos DC Ejiro Evero, have been informed that they are no longer being considered for the team’s head coaching role.
So who is the Denver Broncos front-runner? Well, would you believe Michigan Wolverines head coach Jim Harbaugh?
The Broncos giving several of their leading coaching candidates the ‘Thanks, but no thanks,’ communique is an indication that they believe that their search is all over but the shouting. Apparently, a late meeting with Harbaugh last week has refreshed his interest in tackling the Denver Broncos head coaching position.
The Broncos are believed to be the runner-up in the pursuit of San Francisco 49ers DC DeMeco Ryans, who is now expected to be the front-runner to take the Houston Texans HC job. And retired HC Sean Payton, who had interviewed with the Broncos, will necessitate a negotiation with the New Orleans Saints to acquire the rights to negotiate with Payton directly.
We’ll talk about the LA Rams’ interests in Broncos DC Ejiro Evero in a future article. For now, the chances of the LA Rams losing DC Raheem Morris have shrunk. That may or may not be a positive development in your mind. But good or bad, the chances for the Rams to hire one more new member to the coaching staff have declined. Stay tuned . . .
