The Broncos officially announced that they’ve hired Bill Musgrave as their quarterbacks coach.
The Denver Bronco announced Friday that they’ve officially hired Mike McCoy as their new offensive coordinator.
“Mike is an experienced play-caller who can build a system around our players,” Joseph said in a statement. “It was our goal to find an offensive coordinator who has flexibility with his scheme, and Mike has done that as both a head coach and coordinator. He’s had a lot of success in this league with many different styles of offense, including here with the Broncos.
“Mike will bring energy and creativity to our offense, and we’re excited to welcome him back to Denver.”
Mike Klis is now reporting that the Broncos are finalizing deals with Mike McCoy to become their offensive coordinator and Bill Musgrave to take over as the team’s quarterbacks coach.
- Klis adds that the Browns and Bills had both expressed interest in Musgrave for their offensive coordinator positions.
The Broncos scheduled interviews with McCoy and Musgrave after they hired new HC Vance Joseph, and it appears as though they were able to close the deal with him and Musgrave.
These are two big additions for the Broncos, as Joseph can turn the offense over to McCoy and Musgrave and focus on maintaining one of the best defenses in the NFL.
It’s worth mentioning that the Broncos are widely expected to promote DBs coach Joe Woods to defensive coordinator now that Wade Phillips has accepted the Rams’ coordinator job.
McCoy, 44, 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 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.
Musgrave, 49, began his NFL coaching career with the Raiders back in 1997 as their quarterbacks 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.
The Raiders parted ways with Musgrave a few days ago.
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.
