Report: Mike McCoy back to Broncos as offensive coordinator

AP

Mike McCoy is returning to the Denver Broncos.

According to Mike Klis of 9NEWS, McCoy is finalizing a deal to become the offensive coordinator of the Broncos under new head coach Vance Joseph.

McCoy spent four years as offensive coordinator of the Broncos from 2009-12 before leaving to become head coach of the San Diego Chargers. After being fired by the Chargers, McCoy is heading back to his former team.

McCoy left the Carolina Panthers to join Josh McDaniels’ staff with the Broncos in 2009. Following McDaniels’ dismissal, McCoy was reunited with head coach John Fox, who he had coached under for nine years with the Panthers.

  1. This is a good hire for the Broncos. McCoy was made by Peyton, and he can thank him for the coin he made as a head coach. It will be interesting to see how he does as an OC with a quarterback that doesn’t run the offense.

  2. Nail in the coffin. This guy sucked as a HC and sucked as a OC! Only reason he had any success was when Manning ran his own offense!
    welcome to the rebuild donkeys!

  3. Oh man, VJ as HC? Instant GOAT. McCoy as OC? Canton! Joe Woods as DC? Another Instant Goat. We are back baby! Three Peat! Giddee Up Pard!

    Didn’t he help adjust to Tebow’s strengths and lead that offense to the divisional round of the playoffs? We’re talking Tim Tebow mind you. Pretty brilliant work if you ask me.

  5. Uhhh for all the people saying Manning made his career, do you remember when he adapted the offense to actually win games (including a playoff game) with Tim-frickin-Tebow at QB? Apparently not.

  6. I remember when he changed the entire offense mid season, during the bye week, to accomodate a left handed option QB who couldnt throw, and made the playoffs then beat the steelers in the wildcard. He should be able to figure out Siemien and Lynch.

    you donks are delusional and dont remember your history. thats what makes you so entertaining.
    you “won” the div that year in a 8-8 tie – hardly something to be proud of.
    during the regular season you won a couple of games with tebow, but it had little to do with any game planning and much more to do with tebow improvising, running around and making a play. something teams didnt adjust to right away.
    all of that tebow “magic” was last minute miracle type of plays, including the steeler game.
    mccoy is so conservative i am surprised he has the guts to send in a play. he has zero clock management.
    good luck with him, and no, i dont really mean that – in reality i am completely stoked you guys messed up your team so badly! mccoy? losing Wade?!! hiring who as HC?? gonna be a long rebuild and you dont even realize it! Hee Haw!

    McCoy couldn’t do squat with Kyle Orton, who had a ten year career with a winning record. Maybe some other team should’ve adjusted to Tebow’s strengths. Jacksonville with Tebow in a Tebow-friendly offense certainly wouldn’t have been worse than they have been with Gabbert and Bortles.

  9. Man, Bronco Haters are just dummies….McCoy is a very good offensive coordinator, and will be a head coach again someday. His offenses in SD finished 5th in ’13, 18th in ’14, 9th in ’15 and 14th this season, with a ton of injuries in ’14, ’15 and ’16. Also, the Broncos started 1-4 under Kyle Orton in 2011, but finished 7-4 under Tebow, with the No. 1 rushing attack in the NFL. The man can straight up coach offense…also, we got Bill Musgrave, who did an outstanding job developing Derek Carr, no matter what the Raider shrews think…also, there seems to be some idea the Broncos don’t have a QB, well, here is how Trevor Siemian’s first year as a starter stacks up vs Tom Brady and Derek Carr as examples:

    Brady
    264/413 63.9 pct 2846 yds pass 6.9 avg 18 TD 12 INT

    Carr
    348/599 58.1 pct 3270 yds pass 5.5avg 21 TD
    12 INT

    Trevor
    289/486 59.5 pct 3401 yds pass 7.0 avg 18 TD
    10 INT

    T Siem was 8-6 as a starter, compared to Carr going 0-9 before he got his first win…

    But, you know, never let the facts get in the way of a good story, right?
