KC Chiefs Reported OC Target, Mike McCoy, Stays With Denver Broncos

The Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator search will continue without a known leading candidate.

Two weeks ago Kent Babb of the KC Star identified Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy as a possible candidate and ESPN's Chris Mortensen later reported the Chiefs were "strongly considering" McCoy for the position.

Not anymore. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports McCoy will remain with John Fox and the Broncos. Fox and McCoy worked together with the Carolina Panthers so the news doesn't come as a complete shock. McCoy was also considered a candidate for the Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator job under new head coach Pat Shurmur.

Fox said this week that McCoy has options, possibly an indirect reference the Chiefs and/or Browns interest.

With McCoy eliminated from contention, there are no known names connected with the Chiefs offensive coordinator job. Maybe the Chiefs look outside the organization -- perhaps Arizona -- or maybe they stay in-house and promote someone.
