The Buffalo Bills haven't had much luck in their first few targets for offensive coordinator, so, new head coach Sean McDermott is talking with someone he knows.

According to Joe Person of The Charlotte Observer, Carolina Panthers quarterback coach Ken Dorsey interviewed with the Bills for the team's vacant offensive coordinator position on Wednesday -- the first reported interview that the Bills have conducted.

Dorsey, 35, has been with the Panthers for each of the last three seasons as the team's quarterback coach, working alongside Cam Newton. The tie-in between McDermott and Dorsey is obvious -- as both were a member of Ron Rivera's staff in Carolina for the past several years.

Dorsey has long been viewed as a bright young mind in the NFL, which helped pave the way for his interview with the Bills. He spent six seasons in the NFL as a quarterback, following one of the most decorated careers in college football history with Miami.

The Bills also had reported interest in former Jaguars offensive coordinator Greg Olson, but he has since taken a position with the Los Angeles Rams as their quarterback coach. Earlier on Wednesday, CBS Sports reported that the Bills also may have some interest in Green Bay quarterback coach Alex Van Pelt for the offensive coordinator role.
