Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy has become an extremely hot name on the head coaching market, and it just seems like every team is clamoring for his services. The Philadelphia Eagles are the latest team to request the Broncos for an interview with McCoy, and the news comes to us from Jason La Canfora via Twitter.
Canfora adds that the Arizona Cardinals and Chicago Bears will be interviewing him, but we already knew that since they requested to interview McCoy soon after firing their own coaches on Monday. Both interviews were accepted, as was this request by the Eagles. McCoy, as Canfora notes, now has three interviews to go to this weekend. Will that distract him and the Broncos in the playoffs? I doubt it, especially since Peyton Manning is at the helm.
Anyway, it sounds like McCoy is pretty much guaranteed to bag a gig as a head coach. The teams that fired their head men are mostly in need of an offensive guru to lead the way, and McCoy is certainly that. He was the one who made the whole Tim Tebow thing actually work last season, and he used to be uncredited genius behind it all.
In our own division, the Buffalo Bills have shown interest as well. What I think is needed in Buffalo is either a great defensive mind or a QB guru, so either Lovie Smith or Ken Whisenhunt would be good options. Whisenhunt is no QB guru, but they like his experience. McCoy has also garnered interest from the Jacksonville Jaguars, but he would need a strong defensive coordinator with the Bills or Jaguars.
