McDermott just finished his sixth season as coordinator for the Panthers. His unit ranked in the top 10 from 2012-15 and he was the only coordinator to oversee a top 10 defense in each of those four seasons. McDermott helped the Panthers reach the Super Bowl last season before they struggled this season after the departure of star cornerback Josh Norman and injuries to star linebacker Luke Kuechly. Before arriving in Carolina in 2011, McDermott had spent 12 seasons in Philadelphia, including two as coordinator. He was part of Eagles teams that won six division titles, played in five NFC championship games and made one Super Bowl trip. http://camdencrawfordfocus.redcarolinaparaguay.org/2017/01/11/some-basic-tips-on-picking-out-central-aspects-in-national-health-serviceMcDermott interviewed for the Bills opening last week. York said he was open to hiring either the coach or general manager first. He said the primary goal in the search is finding a coach and general manager who can work well together. He has already interviewed five candidates for general manager, including Carolina assistant GM Brandon Beane on Monday. The other executives interviewed were Indianapolis vice president of football operations Jimmy Raye III, Minnesota assistant GM George Paton, Green Bay director of football operations Eliot Wolf and Packers director of player personnel Brian Gutekunst. additional infoCopyright 2017 The Associated Press.

McDermott follows four offense-oriented coaches Anthony Lynn, Kyle Shanahan, Josh McDaniels and Sean McVay to meet with 49ers CEO Jed York. Also Tuesday, the 49ers interviewed their fifth potential general manager, Louis Riddick,an ESPN analyst whos worked in the NFL personnel departments in Washington and Philadelphia. Riddick was a 1991 ninth-round draft pick of the 49ers, and he went on to a seven-year playing career elsewhere as a safety. With the Jacksonville Jaguars hiring Doug Marrone as coach on Monday, that leaves the 49ers coach-search competitors as the Bills, Chargers, Denver Broncos and Los Angeles Rams. Only the 49ers and Rams are believed to be pursuing McDaniels, whoseonly previous head-coaching gig was with the Broncos. The 49ers are expected to still interview Vance Joseph (Miami Dolphins defensive coordinator) and Tom Cable (Seattle Seahawks offensive line). Joseph interviewedTuesdaywith the Broncos and is scheduled to meetWednesdaywith the Chargers, according to multiple reports. Last year, McDermott interviewed with the Cleveland Browns and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who hired others while the Panthers marched on to Super Bowl 50, where they lost 24-10 to the Denver Broncos at Levis Stadium. The Panthers perennially ranked among the leagues top-10 defenses in yards allowed from 2012-15, and they fell to 21st this season.Carolinaallowed the 26th most points this season (25.1 points per game). While they search for their fourth coachin four years, the 49ers are simultaneously surveyinggeneral manager candidates.
