Broncos fire Mike McCoy, promote Bill Musgrave to offensive coordinator
Offensive coordinator Mike McCoy was fired this morning, and quarterbacks coach Bill Musgrave was promoted to take his place, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
The Broncos’ offense has struggled all season, first with Trevor Siemian at quarterback and then with Brock Osweiler after Siemian was benched. The next move may be benching Osweiler in favor of Paxton Lynch.
McCoy was in the first season of his second stint as the Broncos’ offensive coordinator. He was previously the Broncos’ offensive coordinator from 2009 to 2012, and that got him the head-coaching job in San Diego, where he coached the Chargers for the last four years.
Musgrave is also in his first season with the Broncos’ staff, having spent the last two years as the Raiders’ offensive coordinator.
