(Photo: Indianapolis Star) For background information on all of the candidates to replace Mike McCoy in Denver, see our Ultimate Offensive Coordinator Fan Guide. On Tuesday, the Broncos lost offensive coordinator Mike McCoy, who signed with the Chargers to become their next head coach.  Denver must now seek McCoy’s replacement. One reporter, CBS‘ Vic Lombardi, says he was told it could take up to two weeks for the Broncos to name an offensive coordinator, which means it could happen tomorrow.  Among the candidates to get the job is former Colts offensive coordinator Tom Moore, who was an offensive consultant for the Titans last season. Moore told Jim Wyatt of the Tennesseean (via PFT) that he will not be returning to Tennessee and wants to be an offensvie coordinator again. “I’d like to get a job as an offensive coordinator in the National Football League,” said Moore.  ”I don’t know if that is going to transpire or if that is going to happen, but that’s what I want to do. I don’t want it to be a deep, dark secret.  If it doesn’t, I certainly haven’t been cheated, but that is what I would like to do.  Anyone that’s open, I’m interested.” Well, let’s see, who has an offensive coordinator position opening and an offense that Moore could run?  Oh!  “Moore didn’t mention any specific possibilities, but there just so happens to be a team that just lost an offensive coordinator, which just so happens to employ a quarterback Moore is familiar with,” wrote PFT‘s  Darin Gantt on Wednesday.  ”Moore has only the thinnest background working with Denver coach John Fox, as they were with the Steelers together in 1989. But since the Broncos catered the offense to Peyton Manning this year anyway under now-Chargers head coach Mike McCoy, and Moore called that offense with the Colts, it’s simply a logical step to make.” So, Moore’s an option.  But is former Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt a more likely scenario? First rumbles…. #Broncos RT @lesbowen: I’m hearing Ken Whisenhunt goes to Denver as OC to replace Mike McCoy… — Bert Jan Brands (@bertjanb) January 16, 2013 Following Bowen’s tweet that he is “hearing” Whisenhunt will go to Denver, Mike Florio pointed out that Whiz would not cost much $$$, if any. It’s unclear whether Bowen is reporting the move as a done deal.  He says he’s “hearing” it, which may or may not be some sort of journalistic safe harbor on Twitter. “Making the move a little surprising is that Whisenhunt will be working for free, unless the Broncos pay him more to be the offensive coordinator than the Cardinals were going to pay him to coach.  (Not even the Cardinals are that cheap.) “But it’s a smart investment of his time,” wrote Florio.  ”Whisenhunt already was likely to be on the list of coaching candidates in 2014; if the Broncos have another playoff season, Whisenhunt will be even more desirable.  The only potential drawback is that the Broncos could play so deep into the 2013 postseason that no team will wait to hire him. “For that reason, Whisenhunt should consider asking for his official title to be “consultant,” which would allow him to take a head-coaching job elsewhere before Denver’s postseason run ends.” The top two potential landing spots for Whisenhunt where Philladelphia and Jacksonville, but the Eagles position has been filled and the Jaguars are showing no interest.  That would leave Denver. Whisenhunt and Moore appear to be the two most likely scenarios, but the Broncos could fool us all and promote from within (Adam Gase, anyone?).  Let us know your thoughts:  Who do you want to replace McCoy?  Let us know in the comments below!
