49ers Interview Schedule: Sean McDermott, Louis Riddick today

Jan 10, 2017 at 7:58 AM--


The San Francisco 49ers are interviewing Carolina Panthers defensive coordinator Sean McDermott and ESPN analyst Louis Riddick today. McDermott is a candidate for the team's open head coach job while Riddick is hopeful to become the team's new general manager.

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.


Riddick has a good amount of executive experience having served as the director of pro personnel for the Philadelphia Eagles and Washington Redskins. He has also served as a scout for both teams.

Riddick's NFL playing days as a safety started when he was drafted by the 49ers in the ninth round of the 1991 NFL Draft. He worked with Trent Baalke during his time in Washington and Chip Kelly in Philadelphia. Riddick became an on-air analyst for ESPN in 2013.

Last week, Riddick described the general manager job with the 49ers as the most appealing one available because anyone that goes into the position could build from the ground up. When asked on air if he would accept the position, Riddick answered, "Sure I would."

Riddick continued, "There's not a whole lot of impediments to the success there, provided that [Jed York] makes good on everything that he says, and why wouldn't you take him at this word?"

The 49ers have been busy traveling to interview candidates for their vacant head coach and general manager positions. You can keep track of the entire search using our up-to-date head coach and general manager tracker.

It is the first time that the organization is trying to fill both spots since 2005 when the 49ers hired Mike Nolan and then Scot McCloughan. The search and interview process will be led by Jed York and Chief Strategy Officer & Executive Vice President of Football Operations Paraag Marathe.

Rapid Reaction to the 49ers' 24-20 Loss to the Cardinals

By Matt Andruscavage

1) The Cardinals are good While the 49ers should have been able to get a win today, let's not lose sight of the improvements made by the Arizona Cardinals. DeAndre Hopkins dominated the secondary today with 14 catches for 151 yards. He was open a lot and the 49ers were not able to give much of an answer for his play today. Kyler Murray ran for 91 yards, passed for 230 yards, and had two total touchdowns. The ground game was good, their defense was scrappy, and their playcalling was not predictable. San Francisco had a lot of opportunities, which I'll go into, but the performance by the Cardinals should not be discounted. They are a playoff contender and will not be an easy out this year. They still have weaknesses, especially if you can force Murray to throw
