Carolina Panthers defensive coordinator Sean McDermott interviewed for two head coaching jobs during the weekend and was back at the stadium breaking down film on Sunday afternoon.

McDermott interviewed with Tampa Bay on Saturday and Cleveland on Sunday, and Panthers coach Ron Rivera said his coordinator “handled it really well.”

“We got in on Sunday and went right to work on Seattle as soon as it was evident it was them,” Rivera said. “We visited a little bit and he felt very comfortable and confident with what he did. He said the best thing now is we have the opportunity to focus in on Seattle.”

Rivera said he doesn’t believe there are any other interviews McDermott has planned. McDermott will be available to the media later this week.
