The Philadelphia Eagles will interview Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy on Sunday in Denver.
The Eagles, who fired Andy Reid on Monday after a 4-12 season in which they finished in last place in the NFC East, have already interviewed Atlanta Falcons defensive coordinator Mike Nolan and special teams coordinator Keith Armstrong, and also have interest in some college coaches, namely Oregon's Chip Kelly and Penn State's Bill O'Brien.
McCoy, 40, engineered an offense around quarterback Peyton Manning this season. Denver went 13-3 this year, secured the No. 1 seed in the AFC, and have a bye this weekend. The Broncos ranked fourth in the league in total offense and second in scoring offense.
The Eagles have missed the playoffs the last two seasons after winning the NFC East in 2010.
