REPORT: Broncos Could Look At Buffs' Rip Scherer If Mike McCoy Leaves

With current Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy looking more and more like the favorite to become the next head coach of the Miami Dolphins, his current team is making contingency plans in case it actually comes to pass.

According to Brandon Spano, the Broncos have already reached out to the University of Colorado about talking to current Buffs' quarterback coach Rip Scherer. Scherer has experience in the NFL, spending time with the Cleveland Browns during Derek Anderson's Pro Bowl season as well as with John Fox in Carolina in 2009-10.

The report is a bit divided, however, on what role Scherer would have. The Broncos already have a quarterback coach in Adam Gase, and some think he could be promoted to offensive coordinator, with Scherer taking over as quarterback coach. Or, Scherer could hire to take over for McCoy, with Gase staying right where he is.

Scherer was the quarterback coach in Cleveland from 2005-08, and was credited with developing Derek Anderson who went to the Pro Bowl in 2007. He moved on to Carolina in 2009, spending two season's with John Fox as his quarterback coach. Matt Moore was his pupil with Carolina, when Moore finished the 2009 season 4-1 with a quarterback rating of 104.9 after an injury to Jake Delhomme.

Scherer also spent time as a head coach in the college ranks - at James Madison and Memphis.
