Adopt-a-Bronco:
VP John Elway
Default RMN: Broncos name McCoy Offensive Coordinator

Broncos name McCoy offensive coordinator
By Jeff Legwold, Rocky Mountain News

Broncos head coach Josh McDaniels closed out his first week on the job with yet another hire for his inaugural staff.

Matt McCoy, who had been an offensive assistant with the Carolina Panthers, has accepted the job to be the Broncos offensive coordinator.

McCoy will largely be responsible for game preparation through the week, especially in the passing game, since McDaniels will call plays on game day.

McCoy, 36, has been with the Panthers for nine seasons and was the passing game coordinator for Carolina as well as being the team’s quarterbacks coach.

His hiring also likely signals Jeremy Bates, the Broncos quarterbacks coach last season who also called plays on game day, is headed elsewhere unless he wants to accept a far smaller role on the offensive staff.

Bates has three years left on his contract, the most of any former Mike Shanahan assistant with the Broncos, but already has received permission to speak to the Raiders and is also likely a candidate to join Jim Schwartz’s staff in Detroit. Schwartz and Bates worked together with the Titans.

Rick Dennison and Bobby Turner, who were on Shanahan’s staff since 1995, were informed this past week they would be retained to coach offensive line and running backs respectively.

The two and McCoy join defensive coordinator Mike Nolan, who was McDaniels’ first hire, on the new Broncos staff. Mike Priefer, formerly the Chiefs special teams coach, will be the Broncos’ new special teams coach and former 49ers assistant Adam Gase will coach wide receivers.

McDaniels is still in the process of interviewing candidates to fill out the defensive staff. Veteran coach Dom Capers, who interviewed with Green Bay on Friday to be that team’s defensive coordinator, is still expected to join the Broncos staff in some fashion.

Capers had a year left on his deal with the Patriots, but will not be back with the team in 2009.

i have no idea why we did this... Carolina QB sucked all year, not just in the playoffs.

Also, why would Capers take an Assistant role when he could be a DC somewhere?

He'll still probably be doing the majority of the situational preparation and probably more interaction with Cutler

I doubt the interaction with cutler part... I think McDaniels plans to be cutlers buddy for the short term atleast.

Legwold is the only one who has said Capers will be on the staff. No hint of this from other sources. We'll see if he's right.

Whatever i dont know any of these guys, theyve gutted the offensive staff from last year despite a very impressive finish considering the injuries we had.

All i know is if our offense isn't drastically better as in top 2 scoring in the NFL next year considering the players we have and the running back stable will be healthy, then it wont be too early to start calling for peoples heads already.

One thing about Shanahan and our old coaching staffs, even though we werent the greatest at fielding talent, we always got the best out of them.

It's all in good fun, but now I have to find another profession since my future in stand up obviously isn't good.

If by "gutted" you mean got rid of two offensive assistance, I suppose you're right.

Impressive finish? Last 4 games: 24, 10, 23, 21 points. Hardly impressive. At all. We were dead average in scoring offense.

Well to be fair, the QB was Jake Delhomme.

True.. If he has the commitment to the run that Carolina showed last season I will enjoy that for sure.

But as Dave said, McD is our OC anyway

I hope he is right but it sounds more likely that he'll land a DC job somewhere.

Umm... what about Rick Dennison and Bobby Turner? And I love how only "top 2 scoring in the NFL" will do when we were 16th last year. You're not giving the new guy much of a chance.

I have a feeling it had something to do with him being too Buddy-Buddy with Marshal
