Redskins Rumors: Scott Turner to interview for OC job, Kevin O'Connell still favorite to keep job

Norval's son is coming to town!

NFL: Carolina Panthers at Arizona Cardinals Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Ron Rivera told Larry Michael yesterday that he had the DC and STC jobs filled, but they were bringing in outside candidates to interview. Kevin O'Connell served as the Redskins offensive coordinator last season, and has already interviewed for the position.

Now we know one of the candidates interviewing for the job. Ian Rapoport is reporting that Carolina Panthers OC/QB Coach Scott Turner is coming to town for an interview. Turner is the son of former Redskins Head Coach Norv Turner. He was HC Ron Rivera's QB coach in 2018, before being elevated to OC this past season after Rivera's firing.

Rapoport suggests that O'Connell is still the favorite to land the OC job. He also says that if that happens, Turner could still join the staff as a QB coach to work with last year's 1st round rookie Dwayne Haskins Jr.
