Morris turned down Vikings for lesser post with 'Skins

The Washington Post reported Thursday that Morris turned down a chance to become the Vikings’ defensive coordinator because he already had verbally accepted the Redskins’ defensive backs coach gig. Morris didn’t want to renege on his agreement with Washington, so he turned down Minnesota.

“A lot of people might think it’s a missed opportunity not going to Minnesota after they offered, but I believe that in this game, all you have is your word and your tape, and I gave these guys my word, and I wanted to come here and help them this year, and I was going to do it,” Morris said.

Morris must know that hell hath no fury like a scorned Shanny, as Al David could have attested.
