Football fans will recall that McCoy was fired from his job with the Cardinals following the team’s wipeout 45-10 loss to the Denver Broncos. The firing came less than 12 hours after Steve Wilks said that talks of McCoy’s firing were “premature.”
Wilks said the firing of McCoy was part of a difficult, but necessary, decision:
“As a head coach, it’s my responsibility to make these tough decisions. I try to do everything that I can to make sure that I have the right personnel, most important the right coaches in the right positions. Seven weeks into the season, based off what we were from a standpoint or production on the offensive side of the ball, I felt the need to make a change and that’s what I did.”
Prior to his position with the Cardinals, McCoy was the quarterbacks coach for the Carolina Panthers, the offensive coordinator of the Denver Broncos and Arizona Cardinals, and he spent four seasons as head coach of the San Diego Chargers.
If he successfully obtains the position, Mike McCoy would be working under head coach Doug Marrone, who is the fifth coach in Jaguars history, and who is set to stay on for at least another year.
