ESPN's Pat Yasinskas is reporting that the Carolina Panther's quarterbacks coach, Mike McCoy, will be joining the Broncos coaching staff. Yasinskas, along with a few other sources, are saying that it will be as the offensive coordinator. Here's what Rotoworld says about the move:
McCoy is an up-and-coming coach who was a finalist for the Panthers offensive coordinator position two years ago when Dan Henning was fired. McCoy ran Carolina's passing the past two seasons, but he's going to have to work hand-in-hand with Josh McDaniels in Denver while Rick Dennison oversees the rushing attack.
I don't know much about him really so it be nice if someone could post his resume or something.
That obviously means that our once up and coming coach, Jeremy Bates, will have to find a new job. I expected his depature with the signing of McDaniels because I never thought he'd keep his job if we hired an "offensive-minded" coach (Even though I dislike when people call McDaniels that). Now I'm quite worried that Jay has lost too much confidence in this franchise as we overturn literally everything familar to him, besides his offensive buddies.
It sounds immature but I hope Bates goes to a failing franchise like the Lions because it will sting far too much if he has success with someone like the Bucs or Jets. Then again, I'd pick either one of those teams over the team-that-must-not-be-named. He just may make JaMarcus Russell a successful quarterback....okay not THAT far!
