Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports that “several” teams have already reached out to former Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy about hiring him as a consultant for the remainder of the season.
However, La Canfora says that McCoy is unlikely to entertain such offers, as he should be a “heavily coveted” offensive coordinator candidate again next year.
While the Broncos recently elected to fire McCoy, La Canfora says that many in the organization were surprised he was let go, considering that he had prior success in Denver and was highly thought of by John Elway.
La Canfora’s sources seem to think McCoy’s dismissal is indicative of more changes coming to the Broncos staff next 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.
