Raheem Morris To Interview With Vikes

What better guy to turn Chris Cook’s life around than Raheem Morris, the now unemployed coach of the Tampa Buccaneers that managed to whip Aqib Talib right into shape?

Wait, what?

All joking aside, Leslie Frazier has apparently made up his mind that Fred Pagac will not be the Defensive Coordinator of the Vikings in 2012 and beyond.

An ESPN report indicates that Morris will interview for a “possible high-level defensive coaching position.”  According to 1500ESPN, Morris has already interviewed with the Redskins to become their defensive backs coach.

Like Frazier, Morris comes from a Cover-2 background and this is a clear indication that Frazier would like to see the scheme remain a part of Vikings football.  Pagac wanted to incorporate a more aggressive style of defense, mixing in more blitz packages and playing closer to the line of scrimmage.

Yesterday, I voiced my opinion that Pagac’s ideas were not completely unsuccessful and that he deserves more credit than he is receiving.

Frazier, however, is seemingly of the opinion that a change would benefit this team. 

Just not a change to the scheme he endorses, that is.
