The Philadelphia Eagles didn't want him, but the Carolina Panthers might.
Fired by the Eagles Saturday night, former defensive coordinator Sean McDermott is lining up an interview with the Panthers according to Fox's Jay Glazer.
McDermott worked five years with new Panthers coach Ron Rivera in Philadelphia, but his once-hot prospects dimmed quickly the second half of this season.
The Panthers haven't made any announcements yet, but they're working furiously behind the scenes, in hopes of having their staff complete this week.

The NFL Network's Jason LaCanfora linked the Panthers to former San Francisco head coach Mike Singletary, though he's also talking to Minnesota.
The Panthers have discussed bringing coordinator Ron Meeks back in a lesser role, likely as a secondary coach. That's the job McDermott had in Philadelphia before becoming coordinator.
