The Panthers have requested an interview with Giants OC Mike Kafka for their head coaching job, reports Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.

The Panthers finished the season with Steve Wilks as their interim head coach after Matt Rhule was fired in October.

Kafka, 35, is in the midst of his first season as the Giants’ offensive coordinator.

Before becoming the Giants’ OC, Kafka was a coach with the Kansas City Chiefs from 2017 to 2021, initially working as their offensive quality control coach before becoming their quarterbacks coach and passing game coordinator.
