Redskins Hire Raheem Morris, Fire Two Others

According to Rick Stroud of the St. Pete's Time the Redskins have hired former Tampa Bay Buccaneers' head coach Raheem Morris to coach the team's secondary. Morris is coming off his third season as the Bucs head coach and was in the running to be the defensive coordinator for the Vikings. Morris' contract can be voided if he is offered a coordinator job elsewhere in the future.

Also, Jason Reid of the Washington Post is reporting Redskins head coach, Mike Shanahan has sent two coaches packing tonight in Ashburn. Wide Receiver coach Keenan McCardell and safeties coach Steve Jackson have been let go. Defensive Coordinator, Jim Haslett has been vocal about change in the defensive secondary and it seems as if Jackson is a casualty of that change. Jackson has been with the Redskins since 2004, while McCardell was a more recent addition when he retired from playing in 2010.
