Add another offensive coordinator to the list of head coaching candidates for the Jacksonville Jaguars, as the team has requested permission to interview Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy according to a report.
ESPN also reported the #Jaguars will interview Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy. So that's five offensive coordinators so far.— Tania Ganguli (@taniaganguli) January 2, 2012
McCoy will be the fifth offensive coordinator the Jaguars will interview in the quest to find a new head coach. It's clear the team is going to look for an offensive minded head coach to work with quarterback Blaine Gabbert. McCoy played quarterback in college at Long Beach and at Utah. He also played a bit in the CFL. McCoy has been an offensive assistant under John Fox since the 2000 season with the Carolina Panthers. During his tenure with the Panthers, McCoy served as the wide receivers coach, quarterbacks coach, passing game coordinator, and was hired as the offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach of the Broncos in 2009.
