The Denver Post reports that the San Diego Chargers have indeed hired Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy as head coach, confirming rumors we reported earlier today.
The hiring marks the second Broncos coordinator to be hired as head coach within the AFC West in the past 12 months. Last year, the Oakland Raiders swiped then-Broncos defensive coordinator to be head coach.
McCoy, a “heck of a coach,” earned the interest by successfully adapting his offense to quarterbacks Tim Tebow and Peyton Manning in consecutive seasons. It’s that ability to adapt his scheme to his players — and not the other way around — that we believe will serve him well in the NFL moving forward. Congratulations to McCoy, and also, now we hate you.
