Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that new Broncos HC Vance Joseph will interview Mike McCoy Thursday for the team’s offensive coordinator position. According to Rapoport, the Broncos may try to keep him there and get something worked out.
- Cameron Wolfe also hears that McCoy is going to interview with Broncos later today and adds that he’s believed to be the lead candidate for the job, assuming everything goes well.
- Mike Klis adds that the Broncos have an interview scheduled with Bill Musgrave for Friday morning.
Adam Schefter reports that the Broncos have already scheduled two interviews with candidates for their offensive coordinator job.
- Schefter specifically mentions that Mike McCoy and Bill Musgrave both have connections to the Broncos.
- Ian Rapoport mentions that McCoy is a “strong candidate” for the offensive coordinator job with Joe Woods likely to be promoted to defensive coordinator.
The Broncos just officially announced that they’ve hired Vance Joseph to be their next head coach, so the team is clearly moving quickly to get their coaching staff in place.
McCoy is among the hottest coordinator candidates and has been linked to a number of vacancies already but a return to Denver could be very appealing to him.
McCoy, 44, was in his fourth season with the Chargers when the team fired him a few weeks ago. San Diego hired away from the Broncos back in 2013 and he led the Chargers to a record of 27-36 (42.9 percent), which includes one playoff appearance and a playoff win.
Musgrave, 49, began his NFL coaching career with the Raiders back in 1997 as their quarterback’s coach. Since then, he’s worked for a number of teams including the Eagles, Panthers, Jaguars, Redskins, Falcons and Vikings before returning to the Raiders as their offensive coordinator in 2015.
In 2016, Musgrave’s offense ranked No. 11 in points scored, No. 19 in total yards, No. 6 in rushing yards and No. 13 in passing yards.
We’ll have more regarding the Broncos as the news is available.
