Broncos OC McCoy to stay with team, continue teaching Tebow

Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy will remain with the team to work under new coach John Fox, a source with knowledge of the situation said Saturday.

The Broncos are in the process of finalizing a deal with McCoy, according to the source, paving the way for the coordinator's third season in Denver, after he drew interest from the Kansas City Chiefs and Cleveland Browns.

McCoy is seen as a natural fit in Denver because of his seven years with Fox in Carolina and his work this season with Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow, who has the support of new chief football executive John Elway.

Fox, who went 78-74 including playoffs in nine seasons with the Panthers, takes over a Broncos team that's coming off a franchise-worst 4-12 season.

McCoy is a former quarterback who competed in Denver's 1995 training camp as a rookie free agent.
