Panthers DC Sean McDermott will interview for the Jets' head coaching vacancy Wednesday.

Seahawks DC Dan Quinn is considered the Jets' top priority. But he's going to be a hot name, so the Jets need to explore other options. McDermott has earned a strong reputation in NFL circles, learning under legendary Eagles DC Jim Johnson before taking over the Panthers' defense in 2011. Carolina has ranked 10th, 2nd, 10th and 28th on defense since McDermott took over.

The Redskins' interview with Panthers DC Sean McDermott will take place on Saturday.

McDermott is free to interview because Carolina earned a first-round playoff bye. McDermott wouldn't be a flashy hire -- and Dan Snyder likes flashy hires -- so we suspect he'd have to knock the owner's socks off to land the Redskins gig. McDermott has ties to the Virginia area, having earned all-conference honors as a safety at William & Mary, located in Williamsburg (VA).
