Commanders request permission to interview Lions’ coordinators Ben Johnson and Aaron Glenn

The Washington Commanders are wasting no time in searching for their next head coach. After announcing a new advisory committee to lead the search for a new head of football operations and head coach, the Commanders are reportedly interested in Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh.

Now, according to Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network, the Commanders have requested interviews with the Detroit Lions’ two coordinators: OC Ben Johnson and DC Aaron Glenn.

Johnson, 37, has been Detroit’s offensive coordinator since 2022 and helped turn the career of quarterback Jared Goff around. He is a former quarterback at the University of North Carolina. Johnson is one of the more coveted coaching candidates in this cycle and turned down jobs last offseason to return to the Lions.

Glenn, 51, was a first-round pick of the New York Jets back in 1994. He played 15 seasons in the NFL for five teams. He began his coaching career in 2014 and became Detroit’s defensive coordinator in 2021.
