One of Vance Joseph’s first hires when he was named head coach of the Denver Broncos was Mike McCoy as his offensive coordinator.
McCoy returned to Denver after spending four years as the head coach of the Chargers. Before then, McCoy served as Denver’s offensive coordinator from 2010-12. Clearly, McCoy has already made Joseph’s job a lot easier.
“Mike’s a hell of an offensive coordinator and that’s his first duties for me,” Joseph said. “As far as the head coaching duties, I’ve bounced things off of Mike just for confirmation. Mike’s been great for me. I selfishly use Mike as my sounding board.”
McCoy’s primary job will be turning around Denver’s disappointing offense from last season and extracting more from quarterback Trevor Siemian. The Broncos spent the offseason revamping the offensive line and added a few young pieces to the weaponry. McCoy made things work with Kyle Orton and Tim Tebow as his quarterbacks during his first stint with the organization, so one would think he can get the offense moving with Siemian at the helm.
