Report: Eagles to interview Panthers’ McDermott for DC job
Updated: January 25, 2011

By ,

Carolina Panthers defensive coordinator Sean McDermott is scheduled to interview for the Eagles’ defensive coordinator job this week, according to a league source.

The Eagles interviewed Dennis Allen over the weekend but the former Saints secondary coach was hired as the Broncos new defensive coordinator, leaving the Eagles with very few viable targets to fill their own defensive coordinator post. The Eagles also tried to lure Dick Jauron and Jim Mora to run the defense, but Jauron was hired by the Bills and Mora opted to stay out of football rather than to work with the Eagles defense.

Eagles sources indicate that recent reports that McDermott was ever fired from the Eagles are false and that the team isn’t just showing interest in the Carolina coordinator because they have no other choice.
