Say what you want about the Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy, but at least one team in the NFL thinks that he might be head coach material.
The Jacksonville Jaguars have requested and been given permission to interview McCoy, but not until after this weekends Wild Card game. McCoy cannot be hired until after the Broncos season has ended however.
McCoy is one of seven candidates, the others include Jacksonville interim head coach Mel Tucker, Carolina Panthers offensive coordinator Rob Chuzinski, Dallas Cowboys special-teams coordinator Joe DeCamillis, Jets offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer, and New England Patriots offensive coordinator Bill O'Brien.
In 2010 McCoy was leap-frogged by Denver running back coach Eric Studesville to be named Broncos interim coach following the firing of Josh McDaniels. Both McCoy and Studesville remained with the team following the hiring of current head coach John Fox.
