The Bills have become the Panthers North, and their list of candidates for their vacant offensive coordinator job have a definite Charlotte ties.

Via Alex Marvez of the Sporting News, the top two options to replace the just-fired Rick Dennison appear to be Mike McCoy and Rob Chudzinski.

Chudzinski worked on the Panthers staff with Bills head coach Sean McDermott for two years (2011-12) before he got the ill-fated Browns head coaching gig, so there’s some automatic familiarity there. He was with the Colts since 2015.

McCoy’s known as a co-worker only to General Manager Brandon Beane, as he was an assistant there from 2000-08, carrying over from the George Seifert staff to John Fox. The Broncos fired McCoy from his second stint as offensive coordinator in midseason.

Not making the list is just-fired Panthers offensive coordinator Mike Shula, who would also be a known commodity to both Beane and McDermott.

  1. Hoping for Chud. Witnessed his work in Cleveland and thought he was a victim of new ownership, and terrible front office execution and turnover. Was relatively impressed with his 1 and only year in Cleveland, and would prefer him over McCoy.

  2. The Bills are closer to being the Chargers of the east. Chudzinski and McCoy have both been on the Chargers’ coaching staff in the past.

  3. No qualified men of color? But of course we don’t need a Rooney Rule when we can recycle bums through the old boy network

    First off we have a black DC, secondly we fired a white OC. The only reason I mention race is because you did. Its people like you that see “race” and “color” in everything are the problem. Teams hire people that help them win. I want the best coaches regardless of color. I want winners. Re-evaluate your own prism you see through.

  4. I was so disappointed that Mike McCoy didn’t work out for my Broncos this past season. In his first stint, he showed to be a creative, dynamic coordinator. I was happy for him getting the Chargers HC gig feeling he had paid his dues and deserved it. He was the coordinator working with Tim Tebow that literally proved he could make chicken salad (by no means referring to Tim Tebow as that ingredient as a person, but as an NFL QB, yes). I would be close to claiming he was a scapegoat in under Joseph, but in reality his playcalling was rather weak this time around.

  5. Neither of these 2 guys excites me……Chud??? Indy offense was pathetic…Cleveland, well no one can succeed there……McCoy interests me a tad more…but lets keep the door open…. a lot of the OC decision will be driven by who the front office sees as the QB or QB’s they are bringing on board.

  6. No Shula????? Ah come on Carolina Panthers of the North, your South Big Brother Team just fired him!!! He’s a shoe-in for all the other Panther personnel that way!!!
