Mike McCoy will not be the next Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator, per report

It may not be the worst thing in the world.

On Friday, the Buffalo Bills fired their offensive coordinator Rick Dennison after just one uninspiring year on offense. Thus, a coaching search is already underway. Mike McCoy was a popular name that had popped up in the mix of things.

According to Vic Carucci of The Buffalo News, McCoy will not be the next offensive coordinator for the Bills. That may be for the best, as McCoy doesn't have the most impressive recent resume of the available coaches.

There are still a lot of options out there for McDermott and the Bills, many in which have close relationships with the head coach. Rob Chudzinski, Mike Shula, and Len Dorsey were all with McDermott in Carolina. University of Alabama offensive coordinator Brian Daboll is another name to watch. He was with McDermott when coach played football at William & Mary college in the 1990s.

Whoever ends up with the job has to do better adjusting to the players he has. Dennison didn't do much of a job with that at all and the Bills’ offense sputtered as a result.
