Mike McCoy fired by Broncos, Bill Musgrave promoted

20 November 2017

Only a few hours removed from leaks suggesting he'd be the fall guy, the Denver Broncos have fired offensive coordinator Mike McCoy.

The Broncos are now 3-7 and their six game losing streak is the longest losing streak since 1990.

McCoy, 45, rejoined the Broncos this past offseason after a four-year run as the Los Angeles Chargers' head coach. The move comes one day after the Broncos suffered their sixth consecutive defeat, a 20-17 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.

However, it appears that Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy may have to spend the rest of the 2017 season earning Elway's approval. "Ranked 24th in points per game, with a quarterback situation that hasn't been resolved yet, the offensive output and efficiency must improve".

The Broncos have averaged just 18.3 points per game - ninth-fewest in the National Football League - this season and they've lost six straight games.

Bill Musgrave will take over as the offensive play caller beginning with Sunday's game in Oakland. But in 2017, they were average, before taking a dive into mediocrity.

Musgrave is also in his first season with the Broncos' staff, having spent the last two years as the Raiders' offensive coordinator. After sprinkling some magic dust on a few terrible gunslingers, that got him the head-coaching job in San Diego, where he coached the Chargers for the last four years.
