Sean McDermott will become the Bills’ head coach

Jan 11, 2017 at 12:42 PM--


Vic Carucci of Buffalo News is reporting that the Buffalo Bills have offered former Carolina Panthers defensive coordinator Sean McDermott their head coach job. McDermott met with the San Francisco 49ers for their head coach vacancy on Tuesday. Earlier, it was reported that Miami Dolphins defensive coordinator Vance Joseph would become the new head coach of the Denver Broncos. The 49ers had a meeting with Joseph tentatively scheduled for Thursday, which obviously depended on the result of his visit with Denver.


McDermott, 42, had 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.

As far as head coach candidates go, the 49ers have met with New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, Buffalo Bills interim head coach Anthony Lynn, Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan, Washington Redskins offensive coordinator Sean McVay, and McDermott.

Seattle Seahawks assistant head coach and offensive line coach Tom Cable remains as the only known head coach candidate that the 49ers have not yet met with.

The remaining teams with head coach vacancies are the 49ers, San Diego Chargers, and Los Angeles Rams. This week, the Rams had a second interview with McVay, who the 49ers met with on Monday.

Jets coach Robert Saleh shares what makes 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan so unique

When it came time for the New York Jets head coach to speak to his team following an early offseason practice, Robert Saleh stood there behind his players, waiting to hear what would be said. Then he remembered ... "Oh shoot, that's me," Saleh said to himself. The story is similar to San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan nearly forgetting to name team captains before his first preseason game. "Honestly, if someone hadn't asked me, I probably would have been sitting there looking out at the coin toss and wondering why no one was out there," Shanahan said on
