Cardinals hired ex-Broncos OC Mike McCoy as offensive coordinator.
Although the move is not yet official, it is expected to soon be formalized. The Chargers' head coach from 2013-16, McCoy was fired mid-season by the Broncos last year. Dealing with a hopeless quarterback situation, McCoy couldn't make the offense go. Before the head gig in San Diego, McCoy was Peyton Manning's play-caller in Denver. He also coordinated Tim Tebow's offense in the Mile High City. He's an experienced hire, albeit one who doesn't really move the needle. With the Cardinals having zero signal callers under contract, there's no guarantee McCoy's quarterback situation will be any better than it was in Denver. Jan 25 - 7:03 PM

Ex-Broncos OC Mike McCoy will interview for the Cardinals' offensive coordinator job.

Former Seahawks OC Darrell Bevell interviewed for the same position earlier today and is reportedly "pondering his options." McCoy is coming off a disappointing tenure as Denver's offensive coordinator, though he had little chance to succeed with Trevor Siemian and Brock Osweiler at quarterback. McCoy is also a candidate to replace Pat Shurmur as Minnesota's OC.

Sirius XM's Alex Marvez reports ex-Broncos OC Mike McCoy and Colts OC Rob Chudzinski are the "top two candidates" for the Bills' offensive-coordinator vacancy.

All three of McCoy, Chudzinski, and Bills coach Sean McDermott all have Panthers connections. McCoy was on the Panthers' staff from 2000-2008, while Chudzinski was the OC in Carolina from 2011-2012 when McDermott ran the defense. McCoy was fired as the Broncos' OC in November as a scapegoat for the team's quarterback issues. Chud has been Indy's OC since November 2015.

Broncos fired OC Mike McCoy.

Denver's offense has certainly been disappointing, but this feels like a scapegoating move considering the quarterbacks McCoy has had to deal with and "talent" available on the offensive line. Until those issues are fixed, Denver is likely to struggle on offense regardless of who is calling the plays. Fired for the second time this calendar year, McCoy will once again be looking for a job this January.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports "there's growing frustration" with the Broncos' offensive scheme.

The front office believes "playcalling has been an issue," suggesting OC Mike McCoy is on the hot seat. The Broncos have been blown out the last five weeks and rank near the bottom of the league in points per game. They also have one of the worst quarterback situations in the league with Trevor Siemian and Brock Osweiler. The Broncos are expected to simplify their playbook down the stretch. McCoy's return to Denver could last only one year if the offense doesn't turn around.

Broncos hired Mike McCoy as offensive coordinator.

This had been in the works but is now official. McCoy was widely considered the top offensive coordinator available this cycle. He returns to Denver after serving under John Fox from 2010-2012. McCoy runs more of a vertical scheme than Gary Kubiak and brings a history of success with quarterbacks. The Chargers never ranked outside the top-ten in passing yards in McCoy's four years as coach. McCoy will have full control of the offense under defensive-minded HC Vance Joseph.

NBC Denver reports the Broncos are "finalizing" a deal with ex-Chargers coach Mike McCoy to serve as offensive coordinator.

It would be a reunion, as McCoy served as the Broncos' coordinator from 2010-12, working with Kyle Orton, Tim Tebow and Peyton Manning. McCoy also did a strong job with Philip Rivers in San Diego, though he ultimately proved overmatched as a head coach. McCoy would be an excellent hire for an offense with a few nice pieces, but a number of question marks, including which direction it should go following the retirement of coach Gary Kubiak.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports ex-Chargers coach Mike McCoy will interview for the Broncos' offensive coordinator vacancy on Thursday.

There have been reports it's already a done deal, but it's apparently not over the finish line yet. McCoy is a respected offensive mind who was out of his depth as a head coach. He'd be a great asset for first time head coach Vance Joseph.
Thu, Jan 12, 2017 03:12:00 PM

CSN's John Middlekauff reports Broncos coach Vance Joseph will hire Mike McCoy as his offensive coordinator.

This had been rumored but now sounds like a done deal. McCoy is a strong fit in Denver, where he coordinated under John Fox from 2010-2012. He should improve an offense that ranked near the bottom of the league. McCoy has a proven track record of getting the most out of his quarterbacks. His hiring is good news for Paxton Lynch's development.

WGR 550 Buffalo's Sal Capaccio reports if Panthers DC Sean McDermott is named the Bills' new coach, Capaccio "keeps hearing" ex-Chargers coach Mike McCoy "could join him" as offensive coordinator.

There are obviously moving parts here, but it sure sounds like the Bills have "zeroed in" on McDermott as their next coach. McCoy is viewed by many as the top offensive coordinator on the market. The two have never coached together. McCoy's presence could be a reason Buffalo is leaning toward McDermott. McCoy has done well with numerous different quarterbacks.

Sporting News' Alex Marvez reports Dolphins DC Vance Joseph has reached out to ex-Chargers coach Mike McCoy about being Joseph's offensive coordinator if he gets a head-coaching job.

Joseph has an interview scheduled with the Broncos on Tuesday and has drawn interest from several other clubs. McCoy was the Broncos' offensive coordinator from 2010-2012 and was the QBs coach in Carolina and Denver before that. He's viewed as one of the top OC candidates out there after getting fired in San Diego after the season. Joseph is said to be the favorite in Denver.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, former Chargers coach Mike McCoy is viewed as the top offensive coordinator available this offseason.

McCoy was in over his head as a head coach but should land on his feet relatively quickly as an offensive coordinator. With Patriots OC Josh McDaniels and Falcons OC Kyle Shanahan linked to several of the league's head-coaching vacancies, there's a strong possibility New England and Atlanta will be in the market for new coordinators. The Jets also have an opening following Chan Gailey's "retirement."

Former Chargers coach Mike McCoy plans to coach next season.

"I don’t know where yet," McCoy said. "Whenever the right decision needs to be made, that’s when I’ll decide." McCoy looked overmatched at times in his first attempt as a head coach, but he was a quality offensive coordinator in Denver before landing the Chargers job. He should be able to find a spot on a coaching staff if he wants one.

Chargers fired head coach Mike McCoy.

One of the NFL's most creative offensive game planners in Carolina and Denver before arriving in San Diego, McCoy was simply overmatched as a head coach. He went 9-7 in his first two seasons before slumping to 4-12 and 5-11 the past two years, dealing with persistent bad injury luck but also overseeing a team that frequently melted down late in games. McCoy should land on his feet quickly as an offensive coordinator. Chargers GM Tom Telesco's future is unclear.
Sun, Jan 1, 2017 08:40:00 PM

Tom Pelissero of USA Today reports Chargers president of football operations John Spanos and GM Tom Telesco will meet with coach Mike McCoy on Friday.

Pelissero reports the meeting will be "to discuss 2017." Both the timing and subject of the meeting is curious considering most reporters expect McCoy to (rightfully) be let go after the season. This meeting at the very least suggests McCoy will not get his walking papers on black Monday, and perhaps he can survive yet another disappointing season. Heading in Week 17, McCoy is 27-36 with one playoff appearance in four seasons with the Chargers while working with a Hall-of-Fame quarterback.
