AP source: Vikings seek interview with Rams' Raheem Morris

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) The Minnesota Vikings have added Los Angeles Rams defensive coordinator Raheem Morris to their candidate list for head coach.

According to a person with knowledge of the process, speaking Tuesday to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the organization is not announcing interviews before they're completed, the Vikings have requested a virtual meeting with Morris about the vacancy created when Mike Zimmer was fired last week.

The Rams play Sunday at Tampa Bay in the divisional round of the playoffs. Morris is in his first season in Los Angeles, after six years with Atlanta. He spent time with both offense and defense with the Falcons, who promoted him to defensive coordinator in 2020. Morris was interim head coach for 11 games last season after the firing of Dan Quinn.
