Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy is going to be busy in coming weeks. McCoy has helped guide the Denver Broncos to back-to-back playoff appearances. Last year with Tim Tebow under center, this season with Peyton Manning as the signal caller. The Broncos were eliminated from post-season play on Saturday night, so McCoy is now free to interview with other teams.
The first visit will be with the San Diego Chargers, a divisional rival. Reports suggest that McCoy will interview with the Chargers this afternoon.
On Sunday, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport cited two sources that told him the Arizona Cardinals will make a very strong push for McCoy. Rapoport reported that if the Cardinals do not hire McCoy, the team will promote current defensive coordinator Ray Horton. Horton had interviewed with NFL teams for a head coaching position but the team is currently denying requests from other teams to interview him.
Various reports link McCoy’s name to the Philadelphia Eagles and Chicago Bears as teams that have interest. Under McCoy, the Broncos scored the second most offensive points in the NFL this season and finished the regular season ranked 5th in passing offense.
