Here is everything Peyton Manning said about #Broncos OC Mike McCoy when I asked him. #Bears interview him Sunday.
“I think he is ready (to become a head coach),” Manning said. “He has paid his dues. Mike is a good leader. He has had some good coaches that have been mentors to him, different coaches that he has worked with in his years in the NFL that I think he has incorporated some of their leadership philosophies in his own philosophy. Like I said, he is a strong leader. In my opinion, he deserves a shot at one of these head coaching jobs.
“For me, I knew it was going to take some time with any coach because I had been in one system and really kind of had one coach for the majority of my career. Mike has been a great resource for me. He has been incredibly supportive and patient with me in putting together this hybrid offense. As soon as I signed here, he’s a worker now. He’s a guy, we spent a lot of hours together, early mornings, late nights trying to get our plan in place for what kind of offense we were going to be. There is no substitute for a work ethic and Mike certainly has that. The more time we spent together, there is certainly a bond there with the quarterback and the guy calling the plays. Mike has been a big help for me. He’s been a really big resource for me.”
