ESPN reported Sunday evening that the Chiefs are “strongly considering” hiring Denver Broncos quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator Mike McCoy to replace Charlie Weis as the offensive coordinator.
McCoy was part of the Josh McDaniels coaching staff for the last two seasons, and took over the play calling at the end of Denver’s season after McDaniels was fired.
He’s 38 years old and has been coaching since the 2000 season, after ending his playing career as quarterback. McCoy attended both Long Beach State and Utah, then spent five seasons bouncing around pro football with training camp stints with Green Bay, San Francisco and Philadelphia, a season playing in NFL Europe and one season in the Canadian Football League.
His move to coaching came with the Carolina Panthers in 2000 as an offensive assistant. He then moved up the ranks to wide receivers coach, quarterbacks coach and passing game coordinator over the nine seasons he was with the Panthers.
