Quarterbacks coach Bill Musgrave was promoted to offensive coordinator to replace McCoy.
The Broncos fired offensive coordinator Mike McCoy on Monday morning, one day after the team lost to the Cincinnati Bengals for their sixth consecutive loss. The Broncos averaged just 18.3 points per game through the first ten games of the season, the ninth-worst total in the NFL.
McCoy was a quarterback for the University of Utah in the early 1990s.
A Brock Osweiler interception was returned 100 yards and nearly for a touchdown in the first quarter against the Bengals.
Comcast talking to Fox about a deal, source says
The conversations are at a very early stage, and there's no guarantee that a deal would be finalized, this person said Thursday. Comcast owns NBCUniversal, and regulatory conditions placed on that deal expire in 2018.
No one is arguing the fact that McCoy wasn't the right fit for the Broncos. As a former Broncos offensive coordinator with success, he was expected to help fix what was once a prolific unit.
After sprinkling some magic dust on a few terrible gunslingers, that got him the head-coaching job in San Diego, where he coached the Chargers for the last four years.
Recent reports out of Denver suggest the players struggled to grasp McCoy's system, and Musgrave - who has had successful coordinating stints in Minnesota and most recently in Oakland last season - could look to simplify the offense. "I want to thank Vance for the opportunity he gave me and the entire organization from [Pat Bowlen] all the way on down".
However, perhaps seeing that the Broncos are choosing to be proactive in regards to their issues may spurn on Raiders owner Mark Davis and/or general manager Reggie McKenzie to make some moves of their own to inspire some change in Alameda.
