After a quiet weekend in their search for a new head coach, the Arizona Cardinals are trying to schedule a second interview with Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy, according to Jay Glazer of FOX Sports.
The Red Birds first interviewed McCoy back on Saturday, Jan. 5. He is talking with the San Diego Chargers today regarding their vacant head coaching post.
The Philadelphia Eagles and the Chicago Bears also have expressed interest in McCoy.
The San Francisco, CA native is 40 years old and has 13 years of NFL experience, the last four as Offensive Coordinator of the Broncos. Prior to that, he was an assistant coach with the Carolina Panthers for nine seasons. He was the quarterbacks coach back in 2004 when the Panthers lost in Super Bowl 38 to the New England Patriots.
McCoy certainly appears to be the leading candidate at this moment. He is highly regarded around the league for working with Tim Tebow in 2011 when the Broncos won a first round playoff game against Pittsburgh and this past season with Peyton Manning as the Broncos captured the top seed in the AFC Playoffs. With Denver's 38-35 double overtime loss to the Ravens Saturday in the AFC Playoffs, McCoy has plenty of time now to interview for open head coaching positions around the league.
