Chiefs Aren't Only Ones Interested In Broncos' Mike McCoy

New, comments

The Kansas City Chiefs were reportedly targeting Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy for the same position with the Chiefs. It's unclear what kind of communication, if any, the two sides had but some of that speculation was tabled once we heard John Fox, former Carolina Panthers head coach who worked with McCoy, was hired by the Broncos.

The Denver Post reported McCoy was expected to remain on the Broncos staff with Fox's hiring. While that may be the case, there is at least one team, outside of the Chiefs, interested in McCoy.

According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer, McCoy is "believed to be" a candidate for the Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator position under new head coach Pat Shurmur.

As the Kansas City Star's Kent Babb points out, there's one major difference between the Chiefs, Browns and Broncos -- two of those teams not named the Chiefs have a young quarterback still in development stages. Matt Cassel is more of a known commodity than those two so McCoy's decision could be based around the quarterback.

Would he prefer to work with a young, developing quarterback in Denver or Cleveland? Or would he want a more established quarterback? Or does he want to stay in Denver?

There are still lots of unknowns with this situation and, until it's announced he's sticking with Denver, he'll remain a speculation target for the Chiefs next offensive coordinator.
