Last Updated: 330 days ago
Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy has accepted the San Diego Chargers head coaching job, tweeted 7SPORTS anchor Lionel Bienvenu.
ESPN's website said the Chargers offered the job to McCoy on Tuesday.
During McCoy's visit with the Chargers, he said the team has a great tradition and great people.
“The great thing is it’s a family run business. I’m big into family," said McCoy. "There’s an open door policy for everyone to feel welcome and open to come enjoy the environment that we’re all in this together.”
According to Chargers website, McCoy is also a fan of Qualcomm Stadium and the home field advantage the fans give the Chargers.
“It’s a great place to play,” he said. “There’s a lot of energy and a lot of excitement. It’s a great atmosphere on game day.”
The Broncos averaged 30.1 points per game in the regular-season under McCoy.
McCoy has been with the Broncos since 2009.
McCoy will become the second Broncos coordinator to take a head coaching job within the AFC West in two seasons, according to ESPN's Bill Williamson.
Last offseason, former Broncos defensive coordinator Dennis Allen was named head coach of the Raiders.
Bienvenu said that means the Broncos will face former coordinators four times next season in AFC West.
Former Charges head coach Norv Turner was fired after the Chargers finished 7-9 this season.
