Carolina Panthers interviewed Bill’s offensive coordinator Ken Dorsey for the head coaching job

Carolina Panthers have interviewed Bills offensive coordinator Ken Dorsey, who went viral over last year’s incredible loss in Miami, as they continue to search for a new head coach

The Carolina Panthers completed a virtual interview with Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator Ken Dorsey Saturday for her vacant job as head coach, the team said.

Dorsey’s Bills take on the Cincinnati Bengals in Sunday’s AFC Divisional Playoffs.

Dorsey, 41, previously spent seven seasons with the Panthers, including five as the team’s quarterbacks coach, and helped Cam Newton win MVP honors in 2015 and Carolina win the NFC Championship.

Under Dorsey, the Bills’ offense continued to thrive this season after former offensive coordinator Brian Daboll left to become the head coach of the New York Giants. With Josh Allen at center, Buffalo finished second in the league at 397.6 yards per game and second in scoring at 28.4 points per game.

All was not smooth, however, as Dorsey made headlines earlier in the year for an incredible meltdown in Miami that saw him throwing papers and notepads around in a violent reaction to his team failing to get the ball up in time for a late comeback.

As the game entered the final stages, the Bills were down but had a chance to steal the win only for their lines to soften and Dorsey’s reaction was accidentally caught on camera for the world to see.

In the days after the incident, he told reporters, “We’re human, it happens like that,” but didn’t apologize for his incredible reaction.

Meanwhile, the Panthers also have Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Shane Steichen, former Indianapolis Colts head coach Frank Reich, Denver Broncos defensive coordinator Ejiro Evero, former Detroit Lions and Colts head coach Jim Caldwell, and interim coach interviewed for the job this season, Steve Wilks.

The Panthers plan to interview former New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton and New York Giants offensive coordinator Mike Kafka, but were forced to cancel in-person interviews with both candidates following the death of Charlotte FC football player Anton Walkes move.

Panthers owner David Tepper also owns the Charlotte Major League Soccer Club.
