McCoy won’t jump at any NFL head coach job

Posted by Chris Brown on January 3, 2013 – 4:57 pm

Broncos offensive coordinator, Mike McCoy, who will reportedly interview for the Bills head coaching job on Saturday in addition to a couple of other NFL head coaching vacancies, is not going to just jump and take any head coaching job he’s offered.

McCoy, who interviewed for the vacant Dolphins head coaching post last offseason, told the Denver Post that he’s going to carefully consider any head coaching offers that are presented to him after a round of interviews this weekend.

“You’ve got to make sure it’s the right one,” McCoy told the Denver Post. “It’s not about just taking any job, that’s not my goal, you’ve got to make sure when you take the next step, or any job you take, that it’s the right one.”

McCoy also said he’s going to make it clear to the teams interviewing him this weekend that his number one priority at the moment is to help the Denver Broncos win football games.

Arizona and Chicago have also scheduled weekend interviews with McCoy in Denver. Philadelphia has also expressed interest.

Report: Smith to interview on weekend

Posted by Chris Brown on January 3, 2013 – 10:39 am

There have been some conflicting reports on when and where Lovie Smith will interview for the Bills vacant head coaching job, so take it for what it’s worth. But ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that the Bills will conduct their interview with Smith over the weekend, which really makes for a tight schedule for team President and CEO Russ Brandon and his search committee.

The Bills coaching search team, which includes GM Buddy Nix, Assistant GM Doug Whaley and Sr. VP of Football Administration Jim Overdorf, is scheduled to also interview Denver offensive coordinator Mike McCoy this weekend. It’s been reported that Smith will interview in Buffalo, and Schefter is saying that interview will happen this weekend. Whether it’s realistic logistically remains to be seen knowing these interviews can sometimes last 4-6 hours.

Report: Kelly to meet with Bills Friday

Posted by Chris Brown on January 3, 2013 – 7:12 am

USA Today first reported that the Bills along with the Eagles and Browns all have interviews lined up with Oregon head coach Chip Kelly after tonight’s Fiesta Bowl between Oregon and Kansas State. If a subsequent Associated Press report is correct, the Bills will have first crack at the innovative offensive coach.

According to the AP, Kelly will interview with the Bills on Friday, a day after the Fiesta Bowl in Arizona. Kelly is considered on of the hotter NFL coaching candidates in the college ranks.

Bills President and CEO Russ Brandon, GM Buddy Nix, Assistant GM Doug Whaley and Sr. VP of Football Administration Jim Overdorf have all been in Arizona since Tuesday interviewing potential coaching candidates. The search committee has already interviewed former Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt and current Cardinals defensive coordinator Ray Horton.

Buffalo’s search committee is then expected to travel to Denver this weekend for a reported weekend interview with Denver offensive coordinator Mike McCoy. That report also came from the Associated Press.

Report: Bills interested in Denver OC McCoy

Posted by Chris Brown on January 1, 2013 – 2:03 pm

The Bills head coaching search team could be out west for a while if a Denver Post report is accurate. They’re reporting that Broncos offensive coordinator is on Buffalo’s radar, and Denver is granting permission per interviews under a specific timeline.

Per the report the Bills have asked permission to interview McCoy and the Broncos are granting interview opportunities so long as they take place between Saturday afternoon and Sunday evening this weekend in Denver. The Broncos have their bye on Wild Card weekend.

One potential problem is the Cardinals and Bears have already set up interviews with McCoy for this weekend. Whether there is enough time for the Bills to do the same is unclear at this time.
