To summarize Coach McDermott’s story, let’s first start by telling you that he was born on March 21, 1974, in Omaha, Nebraska. He is the youngest son of Rich and Avis McDermott, also proud parents to Sean’s big brother Tim. Rich and Avis Mcdermott met while they attended Northwest Missouri State

His father Richard McDermott born on November 15, 1946, is a former high school and college football coach at West Chester University, and Ursinus College, he also taught health and Physical Education for special needs children at Elwyn Institute.

He served in Army Reserves before starting a coaching career; Avis Nadine McDermott born on January 18, 1946, didn’t graduate from college but she worked in finances, a truly impressive executive, she started her career  in insurance.

“She was just unbelievable in terms of support, but firm,” McDermott said. “My dad emphasized athletics. My mom did, as well, but my mom was really hard on the academics end of things and always stressed, ‘hey you’ve got to have the grades, you’ve got to be prepared for life outside of sports.’

“I used to go with my dad to wash windows at a grocery store on Sunday nights when it was closed because they didn’t want anyone to be washing the windows when it was open,” Sean said. “He worked his tail off, and he still works. That’s what I feel like has basically prepared myself for a job like this. It’s an old cliché, I guess, but I wouldn’t be where I am today without my parents.”

“We really didn’t see much of each other,” Tim McDermott told “It wasn’t more than a handful of times that we saw each other or had lunch or something like that. I think it was just the nature of him being on the coaching side and me being on the business side. I think at the same time we wanted to make sure that we respected that we were on different sides of the house and were always respectful in not overstepping boundaries or anything.”

Sean McDermott Bill Burr

Sean McDermott and actor Bill Burr are related? No, they are not, although some people think they could have been easily separated at birth. Yes, they sort of look alike, ironically Bill Burr is no Buffalo Bills fan, but a New England Patriots fan.

Back in January 2020, Burr said he felt the Bills would take the AFC East from the Patriots, after New England’s loss to the Texans  22-19.

“What did the people of Buffalo do to deserve yet another game like that? They finally got a field goal kicker, the guy’s out there crushing it, hitting 47-yarders,” Burr joked.

“(But) They’re on the upswing. I love their quarterback. I think they’re gonna do great things. Don’t know if (Patriots quarterback) Tom Brady is coming back next year but within the next couple years, who knows with that guy. Is he gonna play until he’s 50? Assuming he’s gonna age like a normal person and he’s gone now or next year, the AFC East is going to go back to where it was before the Patriots started their run. I feel like it’s going to go back into the hands of the Buffalo Bills.”
