Broncos Hire Offensive Coordinator Mike McCoy: Youth Movement Continues

Sayre BedingerSenior Writer IJanuary 19, 2009

Former Carolina Panthers offensive coordinator Mike McCoy, 36, has just been added to Josh McDaniels' offensive staff along with former Denver Offensive coordinator Rick Dennison as offensive line coach, running backs coach Bobby Turner, new wide receivers coach Adam Gase, and new special teams coordinator Mike Priefer.

McCoy's hiring likely signals the end for current Denver quarterbacks coach Jeremy Bates, who will probably accept an invitation to coach the Detroit Lions' quarterbacks.

The former Panthers passing game coordinator was with the team for nine seasons. He reportedly will be in charge of Denver's game preparation, although McDaniels will call the shots on gameday.

For Denver's young and talented receivers, McDaniels has hired 30-year-old Adam Gase, formerly of the San Francisco 49ers.  Gase was developed under offensive guru Mike Martz for the last couple of seasons.

Former Kansas City special teams assistant Mike Priefer, who has been a special teams coach in the NFL since 2002. 

McDaniels is slowly working towards filling out his coaching staff, and has done so by plugging in tons of youth as well as a good mix of experience.  He definitely has the Broncos pointed in the right direction.
