The Miami Dolphins were scheduled to interview Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy for their vacant head-coaching position Monday morning, according to a league source.
McCoy has gained traction as a possible head coach after his innovative work with quarterback Tim Tebow this season, converting the Broncos offense into a scheme that emphasized Tebow's strength via a zone-read attack.
League sources said Sunday that McCoy was being considered for an interview by the Dolphins, and that Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer could be asked to come back to Miami for a second interview after he had a strong first meeting.
The Dolphins hoped to land Jeff Fisher, who agreed to become the next coach of the St. Louis Rams on Friday. They have also interviewed interim coach Todd Bowles, Chicago Bears special teams coach Dave Toub and Green Bay Packers offensive coordinator Joe Philbin.
