Default McCoy cancels Raiders interview.

I can't imagine him doing this unless he knows he has the Dolphins job.

Hopefully EFX has a few coordinators lined up.

How the hell is this guy getting a head coaching job. His playcalling was brutal most of the season. He should thank DT and his stiff arm because that play has set him up for these interviews.

Now that Fisher has been hired I would think that the G.B. Offensive Coordinator would be the number 1 candidate for each HC position.

Yeah, this probably isn't good news. Losing McCoy would be a horrible way to start this offseason.

Installing yet another play-caller for Tebow is the last thing the kid needs.

But, McCoy is a talented guy and the rest of the league can see it. Again, no surprise here.

I think we will miss him, especially with Tebow. Hate all you want but he did the best with what he had at QB. I think his in-game adjustments sucked in that they took too long and they wouldn't switch it up at all when not working unless it became crucial. But the body of work was worlds better than expected.

Flame away

There isn't much to flame. McCoy did his best with what he had on the field, which included a very raw QB.

No flame from me, I pretty much agree with you. We can all complain about his play calling, but the bottom line is that in the end it was that play call in crucial times that helped us win games.

Raiders job vs working with a very young offense that's only going to get better. I think mccoy knows he has better opportunities in the future than LA.

You mean letting Tebow call his own plays then?

Dude was a pretty solid OC when he had a QB who could throw the ball (Matt Moore). If he's going to the team where Moore currently plays, Miami should be able to win a few games while they prep their (hopeful) long term answer at the position (RG3), or play their way out of one of next year's top choices.

Should at least be amusing. If they do land RG3, McCoy's experience calling those ridiculous option plays will serve him well. RG is pretty good at that crap himself.

Would you want to start you coaching career with the Raiders? Sounds like a suicide mission to me..

Come on Miami! Take trash off our hands for what should be the third time in three years. (Marshall, Shoulda-been-Orton, Hopefully-McCoy) Marshall moreso psychological trash.

Not necessarily.

Mike McCoy might land a head coaching job because of Tebow.

Mike McCoy, the dumbest, least creative, worst playcaller in the history of the NFL.

If McCoy can do that, other people will want a shot at working with Tebow so they can land their own gig.

McCoy worked with Tebow for two years.

Maybe he didn't call more pass plays for Tebow because he was terrified to do so.

I like Tebow, but operating a quick rythem pro style offense isn't his sting suit. Not yet anyways. I don't know if he will really ever be that kind of QB.

Except Mike McCoy wasn't Matt Moore's OC. He was a QB coach. He wasn't calling any plays. McD didn't bring him in to call plays either because he called plays himself.

The guy's entire playcalling career consists of going 1-5 with Orton and 8-5 with Tebow.

I really don't know why we are concerned about losing McCoy. He has given us a new running game, and I thank him for that. However, just remind yourself where we were headed last year. A nicely developed balanced offense with play action, screens, and "move the chains" quick passes. Argue all you want, but I think that last year's offense would have given us more of a shot against the Lions, Chiefs, Patriots, etc..

yes, McCoy who devised an offense for a qb who can run and throw a deep ball but cannot read defenses or throw timing routes (which is the staple of today's nfl) and got that qb to pull a team into the playoffs and win a game at that, and who has two franchises interviewing him for HC jobs, is a horrible OC... worst in the league .... there's no other logical explanation.

I am not convinced McCoy will be a huge loss. I would like to see someone who has some experience developing QB's. I'm not pinning Tebow's woes on McCoy, but I would like to see someone who has some pedigree developing a QB join the team.

I just don't get it... Why would he ever want to coach a QB other than Tebow.... Oh I know McCoy must be Anti-Christian... Yep thats it. Otherwise its his duty as a human being to not worship any other God besides Tim Tebow.
