I am applying for a job, and of course references are requested. One of my best potential references, who I have worked with fairly extensively, is also
the person vacating the position I am applying for, and for all I know could be interviewing me. Is it weird to use him as a reference?

I am inclining towards "it is weird, don't do it", but would love to be told otherwise in a convincing way.
