Mike McCoy, Chiefs OC Target, Expected To Stay With Broncos

The Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator search may be moving onto its next candidate quickly.

Charlie Weis announced a couple of weeks ago he was off to Florida and Kent Babb of the KC Star tabbed Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy as a possible replacement for him. ESPN's Chris Mortensen followed that up a short time later reporting McCoy was indeed being "strongly considered" by the Chiefs.

McCoy was previously an assistant offensive coach in a variety of roles with the Carolina Panthers before coming over to the Broncos with Josh McDaniels in 2009. So it's notable that the Broncos on Thursday hired John Fox, former Panthers head coach.

Mike Klis of the Denver Post reports McCoy is now expected to remain in Denver. Fox and McCoy share the same agent.

The five day gap between the end of the Chiefs season and McCoy's apparent decision to stay in Denver is a bit confusing. Did the Chiefs contact Denver about McCoy? Was he even interested? Whatever the situation is, it appears the Chiefs will be moving onto to another candidate.

Other names to keep an eye on include Bucs quarterbacks coach Greg Olson and possibly someone from Arizona.
