Morris gets passing game duties on offense

Raheem Morris was named wide receivers/passing game coordinator/assistant head coach Friday.

Morris, who is entering his 15th season in the NFL and his third with the Falcons, was the assistant head coach/wide receivers last season. In his first season, he was assistant head coach/passing-game coordinator on defense.

He’s getting added responsibilities on the offense, with Steve Sarkisian being named as the offensive coordinator Tuesday.
