That's rubbish. McCoy was rumoured as a head coach candidate last season before Manning even went to the Broncos. He had 8 years with Carolina and when Fox went to Denver he was one of the first guys he hired to take with him. 12 months ago, he was designing an offense to work with Tebow at QB and helped them win a playoff game against the Steelers. And this year, he has re-tooled that offense for Manning. I have no idea if he will be a good head coach or not, but the job McCoy, Dennis Allen and now Jack Del Rio have done in Denver turning that team around goes much deeper than just signing Peyton.
