Mike McCoy
Offensive Coordinator
College:
Utah
Experience:
17

Mike McCoy enters his fifth season as the Broncos’ offensive coordinator after returning to the club on Jan. 13, 2017. A former quarterback who competed in Denver’s 1995 training camp as a rookie college free agent, McCoy spent nine years (2000-08) coaching with the Carolina Panthers before joining the Broncos for a four-season stint. He then moved on to the San Diego Chargers as their head coach for four seasons, guiding them to the divisional round in 2013.

McCoy, who also coached the Broncos’ quarterbacks in 2009 in addition to his offensive coordinator responsibilities, worked in a variety of offensive capacities with the Panthers after beginning his coaching career with the club in 2000. He had stints as Carolina’s passing game coordinator (2007-08), quarterbacks coach (2002-08) and wide receivers coach (2001) while also handling offensive assistant duties (2000, ‘02) with the team.

McCoy’s offenses have finished in the NFL’s top 10 in three of the past five seasons, averaging 373.3 yards per game during that stretch. He has coached eight offensive players to a total of 10 Pro Bowl selections during his NFL career while working with quarterbacks who have totaled 10 3,000-yard passing seasons, including five 4,000-yard campaigns.

During his four seasons as San Diego’s head coach, the Chargers’ offense ranked ninth in the league in total offense (365.9) and second in third down percentage (44.6). San Diego also ranked fifth in the NFL in both net passing yards per game (269.0) and passing touchdowns (126).

Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers finished with three of his highest single-season completion percentage marks under McCoy while averaging more than 31 touchdown passes a year. The veteran signal-caller earned Comeback Player of the Year honors from the Associated Press in 2013 after completing a career-best 69.5 percent of his passes (378-of-544) for 4,478 yards with 32 touchdowns and just 11 interceptions (105.5 rtg.).

McCoy was the Broncos’ offensive coordinator for quarterback Peyton Manning’s first season in Denver in 2012, helping him earn 2012 Comeback Player of the Year honors after passing for a then-franchise record 4,659 yards with 37 touchdowns.

Before Manning’s arrival in Denver, McCoy revamped Denver’s 2011 offense to suit the skillset of quarterback Tim Tebow, who took over as the starter after Week 5. The Broncos, who ranked 23rd in the NFL in rushing from 2009-10 (105.6 ypg) and were 20th in the league (101.8 ypg) through five games in 2011, made a dramatic turnaround with their new run-oriented offense and finished as the league’s No. 1 rushing attack with a franchise-record 2,632 yards on the ground.

Tebow in 2011 finished with 660 rushing yards to represent the most by a quarterback in team history. Veteran running back Willis McGahee tied for the NFL lead with seven individual 100-yard rushing games and earned his second career Pro Bowl berth with a final tally of 1,199 yards on the season.

McCoy coached a trio of Pro Bowl wide receivers in Denver, including Demaryius Thomas (2012), Brandon Lloyd (2010) and Brandon Marshall (2009). The wideouts, along with Eric Decker, each recorded 1,000-yard receiving seasons under McCoy.

The Panthers totaled three playoff appearances, two division titles, two NFC Championship Game appearances and a berth in Super Bowl XXXVIII (2003 season) during McCoy’s nine years on staff from 2000-08. Carolina tied for the second-best record in the NFC (T-7th in NFL) from 2003-08, posting a 56-40 (.583) mark with McCoy seeing an increased role in coaching its offense in that six-year period.

A quarterback in college, McCoy spent his first two seasons playing for Long Beach State University from 1990-91 under legendary Head Coach George Allen before transferring to the University of Utah for his final two years.

The Broncos signed McCoy as a college free agent in 1995, and he spent the regular season as a rookie on Green Bay’s practice squad. He saw his first professional playing time with NFL Europe’s Amsterdam Admirals in 1997 and spent one game on San Francisco’s roster as its third quarterback that year. McCoy competed in training camp with Philadelphia in 1998 before concluding his playing career with the Canadian Football League’s Calgary Stampeders in 1999.

Born on April 1, 1972, in San Francisco, McCoy and his wife, Kellie, have one daughter, Olivia, and one son, Luke.
