Report: Raiders coaching candidate backs out

Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy has removed himself from consideration for the Raiders head coaching vacancy, according to the Denver Post.
McCoy was set to interview with Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie on Wednesday. Instead, McCoy informed McKenzie that he isn’t interested, canceled the interview and boarded a plane for New York for a second interview with Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross about their coaching vacancy.
McKenzie also was scheduled to interview Broncos defensive coordinator Dennis Allen in Denver on Wednesday. No word on if that one went off as planned.
The word from Miami is that McCoy considers himself to be the front-runner for the Dolphins job, and he didn’t want to do anything to jeopardize that by entertaining other suitors.
McKenzie, according to the Miami Herald, wasn’t real thrilled with McCoy’s change of heart.

    Ric Flair for H.C because he has more cars than some of you have friends! WOOOOOOO…Then he can call Ted Dibiase to help financially to help us sign whoever we want as h.c. Hack saw Jim Duggan as linebackers coach but we might revert to getting dumb penalties…

    politicians = puppets.

    pro wrestling is just as “real” as the politics and politicians you see on TV.

    everything is staged.

    His HC interviews look scattered and haphazard but is there more going on than meets the eye?

    What I don’t understand is that the last few years most fans complained about Al Davis and the way he ran the Raiders like a dictator. We bemoaned not having a GM or scouting department like most teams do. Yet the minute the team starts going down the direction that most of us have been asking for we start complaining about that too. Was Hue Jackson on anyone teams coaching radar besides Al’s? Before coming to the Raiders he had two mediocre stints as an OC with the Redskins and Falcons. Yes the Raiders got better offensively in two years but maybe that was because we actually had professionals at QB instead of JaMarcus, drafted two talented young receivers in back to back years (Ford and Moore) and one year of a healthy McFadden (2010). Hue was the old way. A HC that no other team would have even thought of hiring, working with Coordinators not of his own choice. So let’s sit back and watch for once how it should be done. A GM interviewing HC candidates, hiring one and then letting him pick his staff. I think we have done it for so long that we don’t know how to stop complaining. But let’s STOP IT.

    Did “Spuds” actually screw the pooch this time? I thought when a GM came on board it was to evaluate from top to bottom then make changes. Not in this case? Spuds over played his hand this time! The correct scenario let the HC play his hand. Hue was not a bad coach actually but more of a hands on man. At least he haD TO DEAL WITH INJURIES TO KEY PLAYERS. Had to deal with a bad DC of his choice or defensive overpaid players! So with the current crop of rejects on the coaching carousel. Tell Spuds to rehire and give an apology to Hue and if the team doesn’t improve cut him loose then and not now! Get rid of Palmer now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
