Bills GM Doug Whaley spearheaded the team’s search for a new head coach, and when he presented Sean McDermott to owners Terry and Kim Pegula, Carolina Panthers beat reporter Joe Person (Charlotte Observer) said all indications he got from people in the Panthers organization was that the two sides hit it off.

“It sounded like right from the get go that he and the Pegulas hit things off last week,” Person said in an interview on the John Murphy Show. “I was kind of getting that feedback who were around the situation here in Charlotte. Sometimes it’s just how you relate to people.

“The other thing is this opportunity. He’s 42 now and that’s not by any means old, but a guy like Sean McVay is going to get hired at 30. Sometimes these windows close on good, solid coordinators. He must feel like this is a great opportunity and the timing is right. There are only 32 of these jobs. They’re tough to get, tough to keep, but I know this has long been a goal and dream of his.”
