The New York Giants are moving quickly to get their search for a new defensive coordinator started. The Giants were given permission Thursday afternoon to speak with Washington Redskins defensive backs coach Raheem Morris about the job, and Morris will reportedly by in East Rutherford on Friday morning to meet with the Giants.

That, of course, makes Morris the first 'official' candidate for the job that opened Wednesday when the Giants fired Perry Fewell.

Morris, former head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, has been called a candidate for Washington's vacant defensive coordinator post. The fact that the Redskins are allowing him to interview with the Giants is a pretty clear signal he isn't getting that job, and probably wouldn't be retained whenever a new coordinator is hired.

From what I have been able to ascertain, Morris seems to have little support among those who follow the Redskins. The Washington secondary was so awful in 2014 that it ranked dead last among 288 teams ranked in total QBR since 2006.
