(Photo: CBS4 Denver) It’s a nicer problem than having to fire coaches, but the Broncos would prefer neither firing or losing their coaching staff.  That latter could happen in 2013. Coaches who think they’ll possibly be in line for one of the many looming coaching vacancies are commencing the process of lining up potential coaching staffs while preparing for the final game of the regular season.  And that necessarily creates distractions for assistant coaches who are currently working for playoff teams, since they’ll be among the most desirable candidates for jobs. For example, in Denver we’re told that offensive coordinator Mike McCoy and defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio are each getting their ducks in a row, in the event that they are asked to interview for jobs during the upcoming bye week (if, of course, the Broncos earn a bye). Per PFT, Denver’s two coordinators, McCoy and Del Rio, are preparing for interviews expected to begin happening shortly.  It’s no secret that McCoy and Del Rio are expected to be courted, both coaches deserve a lot of credit for Denver’s success dating back to last season. Last year, McCoy courted a handful of teams but opted to stay in Denver.  The Broncos former defensive coordinator, Dennis Allen, landing a head coaching gig with the Raiders.  This offseason, we wouldn’t be surprised to see McCoy take the jump and Del Rio stay for at least one more season. McCoy has proved himself and if the Broncos win a Super Bowl, the only thing left for him to accomplish will be to run his own team.  Del Rio has been there and done that (without much success) and teams may want to see a larger sample of his post-Jacksonville coaching before seriously offering him another No. 1 coaching job. Of course, if the Broncos do go all the way, McCoy and Del Rio may not want to leave.  But everyone likes moving up in the world, and nobody can chide McCoy or Del Rio for testing the head coaching waters.
