Former San Diego Chargers head coach and Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy is expected to join the Arizona Cardinals as head coach Steve Wilks’ offensive coordinator, reports 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station’s John Gambadoro.

The 18-year NFL coach is receiving a two-year deal from the Cardinals, according to Gambadoro.

McCoy began the 2017 season as the Broncos’ offensive coordinator before he was fired in November after the team lost its sixth straight game. In that span that sealed his fate, McCoy’s Denver offense averaged 322.2 yards and 14.2 points per game.

Before his brief second stay in the Mile High City, he served as the Chargers’ head coach from 2013-2016.

McCoy’s first stint with the Broncos came from 2009-2012, when he was the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach before he dropped the quarterback job from 2010-2012.

As a quarterback product out of Utah, McCoy played for the Amsterdam Admirals of NFL Europe from 1997 to 1998 and Calgary Stampeders of the Canadian Football League in 1999.

McCoy will succeed Harold Goodwin, who spent 2013-2017 as the offensive coordinator under Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians.
