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.

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