Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Raheem Morris says he has agreed to coach the Washington Redskins' defensive backs. ''I'm a football coach. This is what I do, it's who I am,'' Morris told the Tampa Bay Times, which reported his hiring Thursday. Morris will be reunited with general manager Bruce Allen, who was the GM in Tampa Bay when Morris returned from a one-year stint as Kansas State's defensive coordinator to coach the Buccaneers defensive backs. Morris was Tampa Bay's defensive backfield coach for four seasons. He replaced Monte Kiffin as defensive coordinator in 2008 and Tampa Bay promoted him to head coach in 2009 replacing Jon Gruden. He had a 17-31-0 record in three years as head coach. The Buccaneers fired Morris on Jan. 2.
