Less than 24 hours after the New York Giants showed defensive coordinator Perry Fewell the door as the team's defensive coordinator, the team is wasting no time in their search for their next defensive coordinator and are looking to their NFC East rivals for a possible coaching candidate.
The Giants have requested permission from the Washington Redskins to speak with defensive backs coach Raheem Morris; as Adam Schefter of ESPN reported.

Morris has been with the Redskins as their defensive backs coach since the 2012 season after he was fired from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as their head coach; a job he held from 2009 until 2011 and went 17-31 in three seasons.
