Mike McCoy To Interview With Jacksonville Jaguars For Head Coaching Position
Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy had an interview scheduled for today with the Jacksonville Jaguars for their vacant head coaching position, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter, however he was forced to reschedule after his club’s overtime victory over the heavily favored Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday evening.
McCoy has served as the Broncos offensive coordinator since 2009. He had previously served as a quarterbacks coach and an offensive assistant under current Broncos head coach John Fox when Fox roamed the sidelines for the Carolina Panthers.
The Jaguars head coaching position became available after outgoing owner Wayne Weaver fired longtime head coach Jack Del Rio as his last move as owner before selling the team to Shahid Khan. Del Rio had served as the head coach for Jacksonville since 2003. Some reports have indicated that Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator, Jay Gruden, is the favorite to land the Jaguars' position. The Bengals were eliminated from the playoffs Saturday after a 31-10 loss to the Houston Texans.
