Panthers not currently expected to host 49ers’ DeMeco Ryans for interview

Jan 13, 2023 at 1:40 PM--

The Carolina Panthers are among four teams that have requested permission to interview San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans for a head coaching job. In fact, the only team with a coaching vacancy that has not put in a request is the Indianapolis Colts.

Interestingly, Mike Kaye of The Charlotte Observer reports that the Panthers do not currently intend to host Ryans for an interview. Assistant coaches on NFL teams playing this weekend can be interviewed starting on Tuesday. Assistant coaches on the two teams playing on Monday night must wait until Wednesday.

Kaye states that "logistics" is the reason for the Panthers stalling on Ryans.

"Both parties could circle back later in the process," wrote Kaye.

Ryans has been with the 49ers since 2017, replacing Robert Saleh as defensive coordinator in 2021. His defense finished the 2022 regular season ranked No. 1 in points and yards allowed per game. San Francisco is preparing to open the playoffs by hosting the Seattle Seahawks on Saturday at Levi's Stadium.

"The interviews and those things, they'll take care of themselves at the right time," Ryans said this past week. "The focus is all about Seattle for me. It's all about that, what can we do."

The other three teams that have requested to speak with Ryans are the Houston Texans, Denver Broncos, and Arizona Cardinals.

Jason Kelce: 49ers adding Javon Hargrave "not going to make it any easier" for Eagles

By David Bonilla

Adding Javon Hargrave was a huge (and shocking) addition by the San Francisco 49ers. While it seems like a perfect fit and addresses a significant team need, no one saw it coming. The Niners didn't have considerable salary cap space, so signing Hargrave to a four-year, $84 million deal was unexpected. The former Philadelphia Eagles defensive tackle, nicknamed "Grave Digger," joins a defensive line that includes NFL Defensive Player of the Year Nick Bosa and Arik Armstead, bolstering the middle of that unit. One of the defender's former teammates is happy for Hargrave and his financial good fortune. However, he also knows the loss could be problematic for the defending NFC champions in the upcoming season. "I'm happy for my man, Grave Digger," Eagles
