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.
