Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Vikings could target former Broncos OC Mike McCoy and former Giants HC Ben McAdoo as offensive coordinator replacements to Pat Shurmur, who is being hired as the Giants’ next head coach.
McCoy’s name has come up a couple of times in the past few weeks, but he has yet to interview for an offensive coordinator job.
Meanwhile, McAdoo has interviewed with the Browns for their offensive coordinator job and was mentioned as a potential option for the Broncos and Packers.
McAdoo, 40, previously served as the Packers’ QBs coach before he was hired as the Giants’ offensive coordinator back in 2014 and eventually took over for HC Tom Coughlin two years later.
The Giants fired McAdoo towards the end of the regular season.
During his two years in charge of the team, McAdoo led them to a record of 13-15 (46.4 percent), which includes a playoff appearance last year.
McCoy, 45, began his NFL coaching career with the Panthers back in 2000 as their quarterbacks coach. He spent nine years in Carolina before departing to take the Broncos’ offensive coordinator position in 2009.
After four years of running the Broncos’ offense, the Chargers hired him as their head coach before firing him after the 2016 season. The Broncos hired him as offensive coordinator soon after but he was, unfortunately, fired a few weeks ago.
During his four years in San Diego, McCoy led the Chargers to a record of 27-36 (42.9 percent), which includes one playoff appearance and a playoff win.
