    Dolphins schedule second interview with Mike McCoy

    Posted by Michael David Smith on January 17, 2012, 5:38 PM EST

    AP
    After interviewing Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy once, the Dolphins were sufficiently impressed that they want to interview him again.

    ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Dolphins have scheduled a second interview with McCoy, and that interview will take place with Dolphins owner Stephen Ross in New York on Thursday.

    McCoy has already interviewed for the Dolphins head-coaching position once, in Miami.

    I've got a weird feeling this is the guy.................................

    He is certainly young, 39, just not sure about the Don Shula part yet. I just got the feeling he's the next coach.

    Anyone know anything about his offense? Obviously it's hard to gauge the Tebow version...

    Mike McCoy enters his third season as the Broncos’ offensive coordinator after being hired by the club on Jan. 20, 2009. 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, including seven seasons under John Fox, before
    joining the Broncos.

    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.

    During his NFL coaching career, McCoy has overseen six individual 3,000-yard passing seasons from his work with Panthers quarterback Jake Delhomme (4) and Broncos quarterback Kyle Orton (2). He also has been involved with the coaching of four Pro Bowl selections, helping Delhomme (2005) along with Broncos tackle Ryan Clady (2009) and wide receivers Brandon Marshall (2009) and Brandon Lloyd (2010) earn NFL All-Star honors

    I wonder if Ireland has burned some bridges with the Parcells tree with how the Tony Sparano thing went down. I am just guessing but..............

    I wouldn't mind Bowles or Philbin, maybe Bowles as HC and if possible Philbin as OC!

    Don't know if its been said already, but in 2010 Mike McCoy had the 1st ranked offense in the NFL. I'd like this hire IMO, although I would have preferred Chip Kelly, because hes an offensive minded coach and that's what we need.

    If hes our coach I wish him the best of luck. His first task as HC should be talking with the Rams/Vikings for their 2nd/3rd overall pick to obviously move up and draft our franchise QB in Robert Griffin III!!!!!!!

    http://blogs.denverpost.com/broncos/2012/01/03/mccoy-is-head-coaching-material/11570/

    Good article on McCoy's HC potential.

    "There are credentials. And there is the all-important personality that is essential in every head coach. Why? Because the head coach becomes the most identifiable person to his city. The Denver media got to know McCoy way more this year than in his first two years as offensive coordinator. Unlike Josh McDaniels, Broncos head coach John Fox isn’t afraid to let his assistants be themselves.

    McCoy never said a bad word about McDaniels. But McCoy has been more himself around Fox. Foremost, McCoy is mature and a straight shooter. He is firm. He has a wit. He can handle the hot seat.

    His personality won’t be so big it becomes the identity of the team. I thought that was the case with McDaniels and Tampa Bay’s Raheem Morris, and is with Oakland’s Hue Jackson and the New York Jets’ Rex Ryan.

    The head coach who McCoy most resembles to me is Dallas’ Jason Garrett. Although Garrett has made some young coach mistakes, who hasn’t?"

    LOL. If McCoy ever ices Carpenter, I think wherever he is, Tony Sparano will suffer an aneurysm.

    Lacanfora just said on NFL Network McCoy is front runner. That means he has no chance of being the head coach. Nobody whiffs like Lacanfora.

    if this is our choice Philbin please.. Hes basically acting as a head coach in Greenbay and been around a winning franchise... I think they are serious about him if they are bringing him in after what happened. He might want to make a fresh start as being in greenbay might be more painful...

    Interesting fact:

    The Miami Dolphins scored 20 more points than the Denver Broncos did this year. YAY!!! Lets all get excited about hiring someone that is supposed to be an offensive guru yet scored less points than us! Unreal.

    Are you saying our teams have equal talent offensively? Because unless they do, this statement is pointless.

    I know. It's as if our FO says: "You suck; you're fired. You did the best you could; you're hired"

    And that's how a winner is built.

    And yet everyone was pretty happy with the offense Daboli called. Even a young unproven journeyman QB started to improve under him.

    The point being, every fan of every team is wrong...about everything.

    Do you have a link to support that statement? According to this link, the Broncos offense in 2010 were 13th in total yards and 19th in points scored. http://www.pro-football-reference.com/teams/den/2010.htm

    Um, they did this with Tim Tebow as QB. Have you seen Tebow throw the ball?

    Another interesting and equally irrelevant fact, in 2010, the Broncos scored 71 more points than the Dolphins.

    That continues to prove my point. Few complained about the offense, and many want Daboli to stay.

    Performance as a coordinator does not presuppose success as a head coach. It's different skill sets. Go look at Mike McCarthy, Mike Tomlin, Sean Peyton, etc.

    Well...we got our guy "with Head Coaching experience"..and a "Young Shula".

    We suck. The fans. the team. the owner. the general manager. the stadium. the concierge service at the stadium. Customer service.

    In fact, the only thing good we have, are our message boards, where we ***** about the team.

    It's no darker than many previous days we've had recently.

    I'll give the new guy a chance, unless its Bowles, at which point I have to seriously reconsider my season tickets.

    Nothing against Bowles specifically, but that just reeks so much of spielman/Wanny 2004 I can't go through it again

    I am just used to getting "my way" as a Dolphin fan, and we have now become like alot of teams that have to "settle". We are gonna need something inspired to happen to us. Maybe Peyton Manning? Maybe Bowles (who I want now) becomes a great coach and Matt Moore becomes the next big thing in the NFL.

    We need a little luck. God knows, that we are due.

    I'm confused. You didn't want Zimmer and we aren't getting him, but you aren't getting your way. Then you say you've gotten your way for years but at the same time point out we've sucked for a lot of years. So, getting your way has caused us to suck, but you wish you were still getting your way, and you got your way with Zimmer but that isn't your way.

    My way:

    getting my way, gave us the best candidate on the market usually, and whoever the franchise wanted. I want the BEST for my team. Not leftovers. I think we dodged a bullet with Zimmer, but am I supposed to be grateful for getting kicked in the junk instead of the head?
