New San Diego Chargers head coach and former Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy said he has come to terms with a crucial third-down call made late in an eventual loss to Baltimore in the AFC divisional playoffs. Recently, Broncos head coach John Fox said the decision “gnaws” at him. Fox, who took responsibility, wasn’t blaming McCoy at all.
Do I think this will be an issue moving forward for the two men? No, not at all. They were together as coaches for a long time. There’s no issue.
