Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee is reporting that the San Francisco 49ers want to interview Carolina Panthers defensive coordinator Sean McDermott. Barrows says that an interview will likely occur next week.


Earlier today, Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer wrote that he expected McDermott to draw interest from San Francisco.


McDermott, 42, has been the Panthers' defensive coordinator since 2011. Before that, he was with the Philadelphia Eagles serving as their defensive coordinator and secondary coach. This past season, his defense ranked 12th in points allowed, 13th in total yards allowed, 13th against the pass, and 15th against the run.

In 2015, during Carolina's Super Bowl run season, McDermott's defense ranked 6th in points allowed, 6th in total yards allowed, 11th against the pass, and 4th against the run.
