    Washington Redskins secondary coach Raheem Morris is leaving to join the Atlanta Falcons as an assistant head coach in charge of defensive backs, News4's Dianna Russini reports.

    Morris, who spent three seasons with Washington, will join what soon will be Dan Quinn's staff. Quinn, Seattle's defensive coordinator, will reportedly be hired by the Falcons following the Super Bowl, where the Seahawks will face the Patriots. 

    Morris did interview for the Redskins' defensive coordinator position vacated by Jim Haslett, but the team hired Chargers linebackers coach Joe Barry last week,

    There will be only one holdover from last season's defensive coaching staff, according to ESPN: inside linebackers coach Kirk Olivadotti.
