Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy reportedly believes he wasn’t hired to coach the Dolphins because he wasn’t willing to keep interim head coach Todd Bowles as the team’s defensive coordinator, replacing Mike Nolan. As it turns out, new coach Joe Philbin may not be keeping Bowles, either.
According to Jason La Canfora of NFL Network, Bengals defensive backs coach Kevin Coyle (pictured) is under consideration for the position.
Coyle, 56, has spent a decade in Cincinnati, his only NFL job. He reportedly was on Philly’s radar last year, but owner Mike Brown wouldn’t grant the Eagles permission to interview him for the job that went to Juan Castillo.
So if Bowles goes and Coyle or someone else gets the job, McCoy’s future candidacy for other head-coaching jobs could be affected adversely.
