Raheem Morris, Come on Down!

Raheem Morris may not be the Bucs defensive coordinator next season after all.

The Denver Broncos have asked permission to interview Morris for their head coaching job.

The Broncos fired coach Mike Shanahan on Tuesday after 14 seasons. Morris will interview with Broncos owner Pat Bowlen on Monday in Denver.

Morris, 32, was named the Bucs defensive coordinator for 2009 on Christmas Day, succeeding Monte Kiffin, who is joining his son Lane at Tennessee.

But Morris is considered a rising star in the coaching ranks and is a protege of Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin.

The Bucs cannot block Morris or any assistant coach from interviewing for a head coaching job.

Kiffin had nothing but praise for Morris upon leaving the Bucs

This interview selection makes me excited. I had high hopes for Morris becoming our DC (he received the lowest amounts of votes in my DC poll), but would be just as happy to see him or someone like him brought in. I know the big names everyone keeps dropping, but I'm inclined to go more of the Mike Tomlin route. Now I know people will say this interview satisfies the Rooney rule, which it does, but I have a feeling Mr. Bowlen isn't one to go through the motions. It's still early in the process, but I wonder if this implies that Bates could have a future with the team as OC...

On a side note, I will continue to drop Charlie Strong name (Florida Gators DC) as a coach I'd love to see on our staff in any capacity.
