It didn't take former Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Raheem Morris long to find a new job.
A little more than a week after he was fired after three seasons at the helm of the Bucs, Morris, 35, accepted a job Wednesday as the secondary coach for the Washington Redskins.
"It's all about the feel, and I have a good feeling about those guys up there," Morris said.
"A lot of people up there I still know, and it's a great organization that's won championships and has a great history."
Morris had a year left on a contract worth $2 million when he was fired by the Bucs, but his new deal allows him to leave the Redskins should he be offered a coordinator's job by another team.
The decision to accept a job coaching defensive backs takes Morris back to his coaching roots. He broke into coaching as a defensive backs coach at Cornell in 1999, and held similar positions at Hofstra and with the Bucs.
"Hey, this is what I do, so I'm real comfortable with it," Morris said of returning to the NFL as a secondary coach. "I'm excited about it, because it's a real good organization there with a lot of tradition."
With the move to Washington, Morris joins former Bucs quality control coach Kyle Shanahan, the Redskins' offensive coordinator, and former Bucs general manager Bruce Allen, now the Redskins' GM.
"The head coach there (Mike Shanahan) is an established guy, and knowing Bruce Allen from the time he was here with us in Tampa makes it an easy decision for me," Morris said. "Everybody there's been awesome with me."
The Bucs were 17-31 in the three years Morris was their head coach.
Morris interviewed for a position with the Redskins just days after being let go by the Bucs and also interviewed for a post with the Minnesota Vikings.
