NFL team requests to interview Jerod Mayo for head coaching job

New England Patriots inside linebackers coach Jerod Mayo has been requested for an interview with the Carolina Panthers for their head coaching vacancy.

Mayo interviewed for head coaching jobs with the Denver Broncos and Philadelphia Eagles in 2022. He obviously made a good enough impression for the Panthers to put some feelers out there and see if he’s a match for their team.

Joining the Panthers would put Mayo in the same division as his former teammate, Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady. However, the seven-time Super Bowl champion’s contract will be up at the end of the season, and he could once again be on the move.

Mayo has already been requested for an interview with the Cleveland Browns for their vacant defensive coordinator job. It’s becoming clearer that the Patriots might not be able to hang onto such a burgeoning talent.

Whether it’s a head coaching role or a defensive coordinator offer, Mayo could soon be on the move.
