Sources: Vikes to talk to Raheem Morris

Raheem Morris, who was fired Monday as coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, will interview with the Minnesota Vikings on Friday for a high-level position on their defensive staff, according to league and team sources.

Morris was en route to Minneapolis on Thursday from Washington, D.C., where he met with the Redskins regarding a defensive backs coaching job, the sources said.

Morris will meet with Vikings coach Leslie Frazier and newly named general manager Rick Spielman to discuss a possible job as defensive coordinator or assistant head coach/defense.

A team source indicated that the talks are exploratory and no decisions have been made on staff changes yet.
