According to Vic Carucci of the Buffalo News, the Bills will not be hiring Mike McCoy as their new offensive coordinator, despite the recent reports that he was one a candidate to watch for the job.
Alex Marvez of the Sporting News reported earlier that McCoy and Rob Chudzinski were top two candidates for the Bills’ job, but it appears as though Buffalo has determined that McCoy won’t be a fit for them when it comes to replacing Rick Dennison.
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.
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.
