The first rule of coaching searches is that if the last guy was fat, the next guy will likely be skinny.
So after firing an older, offensive-minded guy with a glorious head of hair and tan, the Redskins have now turned their sights to Panthers defensive coordinator Sean McDermott.
According to Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer, the Panthers defensive coordinator will interview with the Redskins this weekend in Charlotte, since the Panthers have a bye week.
McDermott has recovered nicely after being in a no-win position in Philadelphia (as the guy asked to replaced the late Jim Johnson), helping the Panthers to a 12-4 record behind an aggressive defense.
The 39-year-old McDermott has never been a head coach at any level.
