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. Jan 13 - 6:50 PM

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.
Jan 12 - 3:12 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.
Jan 11 - 6:16 PM

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.
Jan 10 - 9:47 PM

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.
Jan 9 - 10:15 AM

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."
Jan 8 - 12:25 PM

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.
Jan 3 - 11:44 AM

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.
Jan 1 - 8:40 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.
Jan 1 - 8:49 AM

Chargers GM Tom Telesco declined to say if coach Mike McCoy will be back next season.

"We're not looking toward 2017 yet," Telesco said. "We've had some tough games that we've lost. Mike has kept this team together. So there's some good things, but the other side is we've got seven losses with four games to go, which is where nobody wants to be." McCoy signed a one-year extension in January to avoid lame-duck status. He's on the hot seat after losing three of his last five games. The Chargers offense has rebounded under McCoy this year but their defense and fourth quarter collapses have remained a big part of their struggles. McCoy (.450 winning percentage) may need to win out to avoid being fired.

The Union-Tribune San Diego's Kevin Acee believes the Chargers should fire coach Mike McCoy.

Now 23-29 as Bolts coach, McCoy's team has suffered a series of hard-to-believe collapses over the season's first four games. Each of the 1-3 Chargers' losses have come after the team led in the fourth quarter, with two of the meltdowns coughing up 13-point leads. No other team in the league has surrendered a 13-point fourth quarter lead this season. All the choking has come on the heels of a 2015 that featured one stupefying loss after another. McCoy appears poised to keep his job for Week 5, but his seat is white hot.
Mon, Oct 3, 2016 02:38:00 PM

The Chargers are reportedly open to trading the No. 3 overall pick.

Teams have been slightly gunshy about trading up since Washington's RG3 debacle a few years ago, but it shouldn't be too hard for the Bolts to drum up interest. No. 3 would be a good spot for a quarterback-needy team to move up for Carson Wentz or Jared Goff. If the Chargers stay put, they should be eyeing offensive linemen and linemen, or perhaps Florida State DB Jalen Ramsey.

Chargers signed coach Mike McCoy to a one-year extension.

That puts him under contract through 2017. A one-year extension isn't a massive vote of confidence but now McCoy has at least two more years to right the ship. Of course, injuries were a huge reason the Chargers fell flat in 2015. With the team possibly headed to Los Angeles next season, it will be good for the Bolts to have some stability at the head coaching position. The Chargers axed six assistant coaches earlier this week including offensive coordinator Frank Reich.
Fri, Jan 8, 2016 01:15:00 PM

The San Diego Union-Tribune reports the Chargers have discussed coach Mike McCoy calling the offensive plays in 2016.

McCoy made his name as the Broncos' offensive coordinator, but he has been hesitant to take on the play-calling role in San Diego. Entering what could be a make-or-break year, McCoy could have a change of heart. Former OC Ken Whisenhunt would certainly handle play calling if he returns to his old post, but McCoy would likely take on the role if a less experienced offensive coordinator is brought in.
