Buffalo has already struck out on several offensive coordinator candidates, with the latest being former Jaguars play-caller Greg Olson, who spurned the Bills in order to become the Rams’ quarterback coach. McDermott & Co. was also thought to have interest in Chiefs co-offensive coordinator Brad Childress, but a recent report indicated that Childress is no longer in contention for the position. Former Chargers head coach Mike McCoy was also considered a candidate, but he’s already been hired by Denver.

Dorsey, 35, has worked with McDermott in Carolina for the past several years — the former Miami Hurricane quarterback was initially hired as a pro scout before the Panthers named him their QBs coach in 2013. Dorsey, who carved out a six-year NFL as a backup signal-caller, helped lead Cam Newton to his MVP season in 2015 and has long been thought of as a future offensive coordinator.

    I’m really happy for him..but I gotta admit when I glanced at this article, I thought it was saying the panthers were interviewing someone for our OC position lol. For a sec I thought Shula was outta here smh.

    I always knew he was gonna be a coach someday…we grew up together in the Bay Area, California and Kenny always knew football inside and out. As many passes as he threw me over the years, he could never turn my sprinting skills into football glory, but man has he proven what he can do with guys with some football talent. And I’m sure he’ll excel at every level, just as he has done, and eventually become a head coach.
    It was awesome that he got drafted by our favorite team, still wish he’d been able to QB the niners when they had a chance to protect him. He coulda been pretty dang good, he was great in college when he had a second to throw…anyway
    Good luck and hopefully congratulations!
    Go Mats! Go Canes! Go Niners (when the Yorks aren’t the owners anymore)
