There’s was some concern surrounding Broncos Country this week when people heard that offensive coordinator Mike McCoy and defensive coordinator Dennis Allen would be interviewing for head coaching positions this week with Jacksonville and St. Louis, respectively.
People thought that time and energy would be taken away form their preparation for the New England Patriots.
Well, half of that concern can be put to rest. The Jacksonville Jaguars hired Mike Mularkey before McCoy had the chance to interview.
“When I talked to them (the Jaguars) on Saturday, I had a very strong belief that we would win the football game, so I couldn’t go as soon as they wanted me to go,” McCoy said.
Jags’ GM Gene Smith made the decision to hire Mularkey last night because he felt like he could no longer wait on McCoy.
“I’d love to be a head coach sometime, but I’m very happy with where I’m at,” McCoy said. “I work for a great organization with great people and I love coaching the guys that we coach here. ”
The guys love Coach McCoy as well. Lance Ball reportedly called McCoy and offensive genius this week.
“Good players make good coaches,” McCoy said.
And good coaches make good players as well.
