CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Carolina Panthers coach Ron Rivera says defensive coordinator Sean McDermott will interview for the Washington Redskins head coaching position this week.

Rivera says the Redskins called Tuesday to ask permission to speak with McDermott.

NFL rules mandate interviews with assistant coaches on a bye week must be conducted before the conclusion of the wild-card games. The Panthers (12-4) have a first-round bye.

The Redskins are looking to replace Mike Shanahan, fired Monday after a 3-13 season. Shanahan was 24-40 in four seasons.

McDermott, 39, joined the Panthers in 2011. His defense allowed the second-fewest points in the NFL and had a league-high 60 sacks.

Rivera says McDermott “has done a great job as coordinator, and his body of work speaks for itself.”
