Morozov began skating because his father was a pair coach, however, as a young boy he was considered overweight and written off. After starting out as a singles skater, Morozov switched to pair skating at 11. He was coached by Halyna Kukhar from 1996 until 2008. Morozov first competed with Olena Bilousivska and then with Aliona Savchenko.
Savchenko and Morozov won the 2000 World Junior Championships. They went on to place 15th at the 2002 Winter Olympics. He retired from competitive skating in 2002 due to injuries, and turned to coaching. He coached the team of Tatiana Volosozhar and Petr Kharchenko, and later offered to skate with her.
