As teams like the Oakland Raiders and Miami Dolphins narrow their head coaching search, one name that keeps popping up is the offensive coordinator of the Denver Broncos Mike McCoy. The Raiders have requested permission to speak to McCoy and now he's listed among the three finalists for the Dolphins' position. In losing him, the Broncos will lose the spark behind Tim Tebow's development.
The Miami Herald reports the three finalists are McCoy, Joe Philbin of the Packers and interim head coach Todd Bowles. Barry Jackson writes, "Joe Philbin, who impressed the Dolphins during his first interview, will meet with owner Stephen Ross on Wednesday in New York. McCoy, who also left a favorable impression during his first Dolphins interview Monday, will have another meeting with team management Thursday in New York. Bowles, who went 2-1 after taking over for Tony Sparano, also is getting a second interview Thursday or Friday. After meeting with all three, Ross then will decide which to hire as the 10th head coach in franchise history."
The Broncos should find out soon enough if McCoy is going to be around for another year or not.
