  • Mike McCoy Fired...AGAIN!!!

    The morning after an embarrassing prime-time loss to the Broncos, the Cardinals fired offensive coordinator Mike McCoy and promoted quarterbacks coach Byron Leftwich to the job.

    TEMPE, Ariz. -- Mike McCoy was fired by the Arizona Cardinals on Friday morning, the second straight year he has been relieved of his duties as offensive coordinator in the middle of the season.

    He will be replaced by quarterbacks coach Byron Leftwich, the team announced Friday.

    The Cardinals (1-6) made the move hours after losing 45-10 in prime time to the Denver Broncos, the team that fired McCoy after Week 11 in 2017.

    Under McCoy's direction, the Cardinals' offense was among the worst in the NFL -- and in some categories it was the worst. Arizona has not gained 300 yards in any of its seven games this season and does not boast a 100-yard rusher.

    The offense was ranked last in 15 categories heading into Week 4 and has gotten slightly better. Heading into Week 7, the offense was last in yards per game, first downs per game, third-down conversions, third-down conversion percentage, red zone dives and time of possession; 31st in points, receiving yards per game, net yards per pass attempt and offensive efficiency; 30th in point margin; and 27th in interceptions per pass attempt and red zone touchdowns.

      Fired twice as an OC in less than 11 months, both coming in-season. One has to wonder if this is McCoy's last job as an NFL OC?

      And the miraculous thing, depending on his contract with the Chargers, there's a chance he's currently being paid by 3 different teams NOT to coach their teams anymore.

        He will land on his feet. I believe he is a good coach that had to take some tough spots to make a living that did not pan out. He will probably end up coaching a college team.
