Mike McCoy trying to keep his focus on the Broncos

As the top seed in the AFC, the Broncos will have the weekend off before resuming their quest for the Super Bowl.

Their offensive coordinator will not be spending the weekend watching potential opponents in the Wild Card games however. Mike McCoy is expected to interview with the Bills and Cardinals on Saturday before meeting with the Bears and Eagles on Sunday. McCoy admitted Thursday that he might be less than optimally prepared for some of the interviews because he’s been focusing on the Broncos.

“You just have to go in there and be yourself. That is the No. 1 thing. It’s an honor to be considered for those jobs. It goes to show the type of players we have here and the organization we have here. As coaches we are all products of the players we have and the other guys we work with. We’ll see what happens,” McCoy said, via Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune. “Everyone has individual goals as a coach, as a player, but it is team first. We still have a lot left here. Hopefully, one day I will become a head coach. There is still a lot of football left here and we’ll see what happens down the road.”

McCoy also talked about not letting any outside talk about who’s getting what job impact him, something he learned while interviewing for the Miami job last year. Given all that he’s already got on his plate right now, it would seem hard to find the time to listen to much chatter anyway.

  1. As a Broncos fan, I have nothing but respect for McCoy and think he deserves the opportunity to be a head coach. He is a very good offensive coach.

    The one thing that I don’t want to happen is Jack Del Rio leaving. I assure you that defense has responded to him more than any other defensive coordinator in the past seven, which has been over the past SEVEN years. I haven’t heard his name as a hot candidate for a HC, so hopefully we can keep him around for at least another year.

  2. I wouldn’t worry about the Offensive Coordinator for the Broncos not being prepared for the divisional round of the playoffs. Manning isn’t interviewing for any head coaching positions.

  3. Manning brought his exact offense from Indy to Denver. McCoy had nothing to do with the offense denver is running. They should hire manning as HC

  4. Hey, Mike, As a Patriots fan I hope you spend plenty of time interviewing. We’re very appreciative of the fact that Josh is staying focused on his job as OC for the Patriots. When I was in the job market (ordinary people, not the NFL), I found it ALWAYS paid off to work for someone who was willing to wait on my availability. If they’re in too big a rush to get the guy that they REALLY want, how much slack do you think you will get?? Go0od luck!

    I don’t understand why the league allows coaching interviews for alive teams while the playoffs are still going on. It’s a distraction no matter what they say.


    Other team GM’s and owners want their potential new coach to attend the East West Shrine game for talent evaluation.

  6. Hey Stoney18….Josh Mcdaniels is staying focused because he is afraid (along with ever owner in the NFL) to take a HC job after the shambles he left the Broncos in.
